I recently completed an interview for Restoration House Blog. And I couldn’t help but think–what about my blog?! Thank you, Kennesha for reminding me of how ‘The Afrominimalist’ began. And thank you for sticking around!
To say, “I’ve been busy,” would be an understatement. In addition to helping stand up the Antiracism Center at American University, I’ve discovered a new love–writing historical fiction and non-fiction for early readers! Ana & Andrew is my first children’s series, and I honestly considered it a “passion project.” It was opportunity to write four early chapter books that explored African American history. Just four books. Only now, I am writing books five through eight in the series… and falling more in love with the characters and my new early readers fan club. Additionally, I am working on another early reader series entitled, “Sheroes: Real Wonder Women of History.” My first assigned shero? Harriet Tubman. I know, I know–pinch me!
Life is beautifully busy these days, and I know that one of the reasons I am able to effectively manage from day-to-day is due to my minimalist lifestyle.
I will continue to document much of my journey to minimalism on Instagram (did you catch my feature in Glamour Magazine’s ’11 Women on Their Everyday Fashion Uniforms?’ Gah!) But working with Restoration House Blog reminded me of the power of sharing our personal stories. And so, I sat down this Sunday afternoon to write content just as I used to do when I first started ‘The Afrominimalist.’
Don’t worry–I won’t be flooding your inbox daily. But I definitely plan to resume a lot of the fun interviews and stories that readers have told me they enjoy. So stay tuned. I’m back! Seriously! *smile*
