February: The month of Love, Black History and Fashion

I can’t remember the last time I wrote a note at the beginning of the month. However, this year it seems appropriate, and it’s an excellent way to let you know what will be on our site for the month ahead.

It’s February, and while it’s one of those months where I often feel, there isn’t enough time to accomplish everything on my to-do list, it’s a favorite of mine.

January came, showed her beautiful face, and vanished as though she was never here. Once January got here, I was sent off at top speed and didn’t stop until the month ended. It was one of my most productive and thought-provoking months in quite some time. I hope January was just as fabulous to you.

Let’s get back to February. It’s here, and it’s promising. I love that February is the month of love, it’s the month we celebrate Black History, and Fall 2020 Fashion makes its way to the runways.

There is so much to experience this month. There are many celebrations surrounding black history. And that’s wonderful. But let us honor those whose fight and bravery, gave us hope, that provided opportunities past and present and celebrates what it means to be an African American all year. We should rejoice, honor, and thank those who came before us.

I like to embrace Black History month by not looking at the bad times that were experienced. I instead focus on the integrity, determination, leadership, and real character to move forward while honoring the past.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and everyone is planning and shopping. People are a little kinder to each other; flowers and chocolate sales skyrocket, and restaurant reservations are at an all-time high.

Should we not celebrate each other every day? Kindness and compassion should influence every interaction, and every moment we connect. We should embrace love at every moment in our lives. Buying flowers or chocolate to say I appreciate you or I love you should not be exclusive to February 14th.

Take the time every chance you get to say I love you, I appreciate you, I like you, you mean so much to me.

And then there’s Fashion. The shows and exhibits that give us a glimpse into the creativity of someone’s world. We experience what Fall will look like in the world Of Fashion. It is exciting, tantalizing, and visually pleasing.
