THE HUSBAND OF A WOMAN ENTREPRENEUR

FAMILY GATHERING (CARRABBA'S) 6 (ME & TONY HOME).jpgJust as it is not always easy to be a woman entrepreneur, it also isn’t always easy being the husband of one. My dear husband Tony has always been a huge supporter of me and my entrepreneurial endeavors. Yet, I realize it is hard for him at times when the income sometimes just trickles in.

He has always been a good husband, father, and provider. We have been married for almost 36 years, and I’m so grateful to have him by my side through the good times and the bad.

Today, my siblings, I, and our families got together at Carrabba’s Italian Grill in Douglasville, GA. It had been a while since we’d had a family function. We want to start getting together more often and not just at funerals, so my wonderful and beautiful niece Devaree put it together for us. In three days, it will be the one-year anniversary of my mama’s passing. We miss her everyday and missed having her with us tonight.

Yesterday, I received in the mail two t-shirts (one for my husband and one for myself) I had recently ordered from fellow woman entrepreneur Briana BuzeeMommies Riggins. So we decided that we would wear them today at our gathering. Not only are they beautiful but they are also very comfortable, and we love the sizes and how well they fit.

Just like Briana, I also love to see couples showing their love for each other. Please click on the link above in her name to visit her Facebook page, and while you’re there, please show her some love and support.

As always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours ❤ !

CORNBREAD MILLIONAIRE’S PICTURE COOKBOOK WITH KERNELS OF POSITIVITY

CORNBREAD COOKBOOK (FRONT)I am so excited!!!  Today, I received my beautifully illustrated, picture cookbook from Ms. Beverly Davis, Founder & Creative Director of the fabulous Cornbread Millionaire.com.  And exactly as the title states, not only is it filled with mouthwatering cornbread recipes, but it also contains kernels of positive, inspirational sayings.  She even weaved in some uplifting bits of humor.  Then there are the recipes, of course, which is why I ordered it in the first place, but to my exquisite delight, she has added extra bonuses throughout which also include some of her beautiful and refreshing photos of flowers.

Listen to a few of the recipes whose descriptions alone make them sound appetizing:

  • Cornbread Breakfast Pizza with Cheese, Eggs, and Sausage
  • Pepperoni & Cheese Flapjacks
  • Jumping Jalapeno Pineapple Hushpuppies
  • Red Leaf Tilapia Salad with Cornbread

Okay, I’ll stop.  By now, your mouth is watering like a fountain and you’re probably in need of a huge bib.  I don’t know which recipe I want to try first, but I’ll certainly let you know what I make when I do and how it turns out.  If you haven’t yet ordered your copy of Ms. Davis’ cookbook, you can still do so by going to her website and placing your order.

CORNBREAD COOKBOOK (BACK)Ms. Davis is such a positive inspiration!  I love her assertive and decisive attitude and her trademark slogan, P.U.S.H. (PERSIST. UNTIL. SUCCESS. HAPPENS.)

It is indeed a pleasure to know her and consider her my friend.

As always, this is from my heart to yours <3!
