What we're about

Are you a daughter, friend ,sister, aunt, wife mom or g-maw? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, this is good udada for you. I created this group because while it's good to have "me time" to replenish what we give so freely to everyone else, we don't always want to spend time alone or with our significant others, kids, etc.

Often times we desire as woman to be in the company and spend time with those who are like-minded as well as sistas who come from all different walks of life. This interaction can offer us many different aspects and insights to life's journey. It can also help create bonds and experiences in which we may not step out of our comfort zone to forge on our own.

This group will partake in activities that is first and foremost on a 99% pocket-friendly budget. We will enjoy activities such as the Philharmonic to cruising on the Natchez or the new Louis Armstrong Steamboat down the Mississippi River, enjoying a beautiful sunset. We will be tourist in our own city while visiting local museums to munching on some hot beignets. We can dress up and have high tea with our pinkies in the air. LOL. We can get our health in order by visiting and learning about more holistic approaches to our health. Other activities will be, but not limited to bicycle riding, local festivals, yoga/meditation, weekend getaways, slumber parties, game nights, workout sessions, history and haunted plantation tours. We will visit different restaurants to have breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. We will get together just to vent, talk, and listen to one another when we're just feeling overwhelmed and just need someone outside our immediate circle to be there for us. We will attend escape rooms, painting, glass blowing and ceramic classes. We will have a ladies spa day as well. But I'm sure this activity list is relatively small compared to what I'm sure my new sistas will bring to the table.

I cant wait to meet you gals!!!

"Born a Crime" by Trevor Noah

Baldwin & Co.

July is National Minority Mental Health Month. I wholeheartedly believe laughter is one of the best medicines to symptoms of anxiety, depression, etc. Once we destigmatize mental illness and acknowledge what's considered “taboo,” especially in the African American community, healing can truly begin.

In the meantime, join us as we laugh our hearts out and discuss Trevor Noah's book, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood. Trevor's book is a compelling, inspiring, and comically sublime collection of stories of a young man who grows up during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed.

Here is the link to the book: https://www.amazon.com/Born-Crime-Stories-African-Childhood/dp/0399588191/ref=asc_df_0399588191/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=266121691413&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=15636724849642311592&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9025146&hvtargid=pla-636674831001&psc=1

Hope to see you there!

Peace and light!
