Valentine’s Day::: DIY

I bought this little heart patch at Michael’s for less than $5 bucks.. Its an iron-on that took about 3-5 minutes to make.
I bought this plain red Cardigan from Target, it needed some V-Day flair so I ironed on the sequined heart, Worked like a Charm!! …..I also added the red gem brooch that I purchased from Goodwill (Brand New) to my hat to spruce it up a notch. When my hair is looking crazy these hats always save the day!
Happy Valentine’s Day ya’ll!!!

Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream came true…continue to DREAM!!

“I have a Dream…..that one day little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.”

My students and I, 2 years ago…I miss them so much!!! ❤

“……when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
