"Obama ran as a change agent...this is the week he realized that destiny..."

So very proud to have served under this president. Hope and change win again. And, most importantly -- #LoveWins. Now, let's draw from that love and use it to heal the wound that racism has ripped open. Love can, and will, conquer hate. It must.

This was the best week of Obama’s presidency

Love the fact that these doctors are familiar with dealing with skin conditions and concerns for people of color. I can't tell you how many doctors that I tried that gave me treatment or medications that would cause my skin reactions or scarring (I have olive tones skin). Not all medications and all treatments work the same for all skin tones. They also caught melanoma before I even asked about it. I was in for a routine issue and Doctor noticed a questionable mole.

I love going to a place where the richness of the food is only outdone by the richness of the characters. The owners (a former puppeteer and a spectacular songstress) are as delightful as the food. I have not been disappointed yet. Everything that I have tried on the menu has been succulent. I look forward to going back as often as possible.
