The Bare Essentials

The Bare Essentials

If there’s one thing Coronavirus reminded me: it’s all about the bare essentials. On the 24th of April, we celebrated my mom’s birthday. It was a quarantine celebration. Just like a fine wine, she gets better with age. She is 53. Have you noticed she has a crown? A natural grey hair crown. Then, on May 13th, we celebrated my birthday. Unlike my mother’s it wasn’t a lockdown party so my friend came over. I’m 28. My friend, it is the bare essentials. Birthdays are very important to my family…

At the time, I was 5 months pregnant, right in my second trimester, feeling great as ever. Have you read…

What I wish I knew before running my first relay race

What I wish I knew before running …

Hello hello, If you follow me on Insta, you know I ran my very first relay race for Sint Maarten’s/Saint-Martin’s Day on November 11th. In case you didn’t know yet, we are one island with two different governments. I had fun! Maybe not running: the wind was against me, and I had two hills. However, I’m proud of me for finishing. The glory isn’t all mine though, my mom and a few people helped me mentally. Anyways…  Here’s what I wish I knew before running my first relay race : Tell your…
