Wife Spotlights share their love story & love lessons.
JR and I are have known each other since middle school but I could not stand him, lol Fun fact...almost most of his family on his mother's side lives in my neighborhood. The summer before my sophomore year in college I went to a graduation party on a Friday night in my hometown. I was on the dance floor and JR started dancing with me. I thought why is he dancing with me, I don't even like him. The next night I went to another graduation party and he showed up again and that is when he asked me out. I thought I might as well since I was home for the summer, let's just say the summer never ended and here we are almost 19 years later. Because we have been together since our early 20's, we have literally experienced everything in adulthood together. We are the founders of the Melanated Exchange Market, a monthly market held for black owned businesses to showcase their goods and services. Growing together and being able to accomplish our goals together has been an amazing feeling. Excited to see what the future holds.
Wife Wisdom: Marriage is a like a plant, it needs to be watered, loved and nurtured to grow. Marriage is hard work but it is also very rewarding, it feels great to go through this thing called life with someone who loves and accepts you for who you are.
First Wives Club: I love First Wives Club because its good to be in a community of women to support you and understand the issues that you may through.
