happy February 1. Jeez! that first month of 2018 just flew by right? Now here we are in February a month of new opportunities, new goals, new adventures and new fun events. You know what I’m most excited for in the month of February? Black history month! I love all the soul food, the events on the weekends, documentaries and even the books. I think the books are my most favorite part about black history month. I think the books are a great way to teach our kids about black history month and being black and proud. Especially books with photos because our kids are so small and don’t always understand whats going on. So this month I am going to teach my girls about all things black history and all things African American related I am going to do so with books.
