You are cordially invited to attend The Lupie Chicks Holiday Brunch. I've met a lot of AMAZING Lupie Chicks through Social Media & Natural Hair events here in Atlanta and I simply want to bring us together for brunch. This casual event will be held at Infusion Breakfast Bistro Bar + Grill where we will be free to enjoy brunch, sip and socialize with other warriors & Lupie Chick supporters for a few hours. No agenda. No gimmicks. Just chicks enjoying brunch. There is a $5 fee to RSVP for this event (which will cover the tip for our server). Everyone will be responsible for their own meal & beverage(s). Sponsored gift bags will be provided for each guest from our friends at Eco Styler. I hope that you can join me! RSVP required by 11/30.

I use to Love Him
Black man, 6'6, dark skin, my friend turned my lover turned my abuser
I use to love him
His scent, his presence, his touch, his love
I use to love him
You legitimatized my son, loved him as if he was your seed
Was a father to him and was always there in a time of need
I use to love him
The long walks, and romantic talks
I use to love him
When you called me a bitch, spit in my face, smacked me down to the ground
I use to love him
When you fought me and FOR me
I use to love him
While I loved you
I didn't love me

#MySurvivalStory
It was the summer of 1987. I was 15 years old. My best friend was dating his bestfriend. We occasionally went out (as a group of friends) and had a good time. I enjoyed his company, his jokes. and honestly the attention. I had a boyfriend whom I was deeply in love with. We talked about getting married, me attending college, and he was going into the military, we would have and live the American dream. I became pregnant with my son by my high school sweetheart during jr year. That relationship suddenly ended when I was 5 months pregnant. Literally he stopped calling and sent all my letters back-unopened! I was alone.. broken.. embarrassed.. wounded... and pregnant.

In no time he ( my abuser) started coming to visit me, he knew I was weak, and wanted to feel loved. He spoke to me like I was a gentle flower- never raising his voice. Always hugging me - making me feel protected. His presence made me feel like "A grown a$$ women". I liked him. Once a week visits with our friends, turned into 3 times a week visits, to daily visits alone. Walks in the park with my huge pregnant belly. He became my support system and that glimmer of hope. I gave birth May 1988. I was scared and wondered what would become of my life- would I be just another baby mama? Would I ever have the "family" a husband, what a out my dreams??

2 months after giving birth he took me to dinner. A "NICE" dinner. He told me he didn't want to be my friend anymore. I felt a lump in my throat and a sharp pain in my chest at the thought of him.... another man abandoning me .. My eyes began to water, and my head hung low. He grabbed my hand and said "Be my girlfriend". ME??? The 16 yr old insecure, awkward, damaged girl with a baby? You could have any girl you want and you want ME? My head still hanging low- he got up, sat next to me, lifted my face with his index finger, and kissed me like I was new money. Glazing into my eyes he said "Do me the honor and be my lady-and your son is "our" son from this day forward. I was 16 he was 22. #iSurvived #WhyIstayed #DomesticViolenceAwareness #LupieChick #NaturallyLupie
