Glowing and Growing- CHRISTMAS 2019

Standard

Every Christmas I find myself torn between over-decorating and complacency. The first Marcia usually wins! Here’s this year’s version of Holiday feels!

Christmas tree #2 is becoming the favorite!

Celebrating a Family Legend

Standard

Late Post: A few weeks ago one of my sheroes and role models turned 75 and of course it was a Virgo Events & Productions affair! So excited to share in my cousin Emma Rodgers’ special day and let her know how amazing she is to our family and community.

#mylens Field of Dreams

This past May my marketing team and I joined an organization that hires mentally challenged individuals who seed and plant flowers and vegetables for use by Farm to Fork local restaurants. One of our volunteer projects was to plant a sunflower dial. I recently had a chance to return to see the results. AMAZING!!!

Merry Christmas 2016_”Hidden Figures” the Movie Review

Standard

The best part of Christmas is spending time with close and extended family and friends. I really love that as our lives evolve and change we never remain stagnant and continually add new experiences and traditions to spice things up.

On this Christmas, us girls decided to start a new Christmas Day movie tradition. A bad movie would have probably ended the thought, however, we went to see “Hidden Figures.” The movie is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson – brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

I give the movie 4 out of 4 stars for story concept and music score which was the perfect accompaniment. But most of all, because of the intelligence, courage and grace of these three previously unsung women, perhaps we are all becoming less hidden from each other.

Weekend in Chicago

Standard

I visited Chicago this past weekend to see friends from the time when I lived there and beyond. Specifically, my friend Carmelia Wrenn-Martin. I wanted to support her entrepreneur efforts at opening “Epiphany” Restaurant in Lincoln Park (734 W. Fullerton). The food is Cajun-inspired comfort food and absolutely delicious. Also, the location is actually great with adequate street parking for the area. Stop by and enjoy!! I did, and took my TenaciousM Posse with me.
