Food and Style with an African Twist

Back to Black

Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe.  Hope you are having a good day so far, mine has been fantastic, the service was great, sermon was hilarious but true.  It was all about how we have negative thoughts about ourselves and blame others for it. 

The weather almost did not allow an outdoor shoot, but as soon as we got close to the park the rain stopped. You should have seen me hop out of the car, grab my bag and before hubby could count to three I had posed twenty times :). 

Well we had to hurry to avoid getting drenched obviously, but also because 7 year old was whinging big time in the car.  It got so bad that I was forced to bring out the "look"as shown in the fourth photo below. Not sure how much longer it will work for but that my friends is how I manage to get some peace of mind. lol.
