I have just settled into my role of being the fly Auntie who travels, may have a man or two on the low, tells everyone to follow their dreams, and buys books for everyone for Christmas.
I’m legit all the memes.
I’ve curated a list of gifts for my fly Mommies (y'all the real MVPs) or Aunties who loves the fact that they can give their niece and nephews back.
I’m also the Auntie who went to a HBCU and came back all pro-Black. HU, You Know! I’m for celebrating all the #BlackGirlMagic for even the smallest princesses out there and letting our young boys know that they are a King in training.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
