A reason to be thankful

 Its the Sunday before thanksgiving and I cant think of a better way to start the week than preparing to give back to those that need it. What you see above is not just trash bags full of clothes, rather they are coats that have been donated to Girls2Goddesses and Rmllmzk for the 2nd annual coat drive.

I feel like this year we received so many quality donations and have had more people interested in what we are doing to help those in need. I missed the wash party last year, but one thing that I do know is, this year was outstanding. Seeing the many washers that we had full of coats that were given to us to help those that may not be able to get the coats they need gave me some kind of feeling. These wonderful ladies from Girls2Goddessess and that handsome man of mine made tonight great. We had snacks, laughs, people stopping by to drop off last minute donations and just an overall great energy.

We haven't even begun to hand out the coats yet and I just feel so... grateful, privileged, happy, or better yet humbled that I am able to do so  and am able to do this with such an outstanding group of people.

If you are in need of a gently used winter coat or know someone who is, please go like the Girls2Goddessess and Rmllw2llz facebook page for updates. We will have a set date and location soon. 

To the ladies and gents in the picture, I love yall. Without being the wife of a musician I probably wouldnt have crossed paths with you all. I am grateful to call you my siStars and husband.

Someone said the other day: "Why haven't you been blogging anymore? 2llz has so much stuff that has been going on and you haven't wrote about it." The truthful answer is that I sit in front of a computer for 8 hours a day 5 days a week, coming home to sit in front of another one is not at the top of my list.  Plus yall know how I get. lol Don't judge me. 

Truth be told, 2llz has had a lot going on since the last time I wrote. Since Forecastle happened, he has played quite a few shows like Resurfaced, released a new ep called Summers in Spain and had a release party for that, co-hosted a coat drive with this FLYY ASS chick (me),  and is still hosting the IandEye radio show with DJ DS on, which is soon to be WXOX 97.1 on the local dial here in Louisville. And here as of recent, he has been touring this region on the Mic'd Up Tour with the homie WIP. 
The tour kicked off here in Louisville then went to Chicago and Cincinnati, I do believe he will be back here in the city then off to Indianapolis for a little razzle dazzle here within the next couple of weeks.  I was fortunate enough to go to the Chicago show with him and even though I was put to work (surprise surprise) I really enjoyed myself. This was actually my first time stepping foot in Chicago, instead of the usual drive through to get back to Wisconsin. When we were driving up Lake Shore Drive, it was dark and its nothing but high rises so it was just lit up and such a sight to see. (Im over here sounding like Ive never seen city lights before lol) But it really was pretty, I wish it wouldve been warmer so we could have stopped for a second, but being that we were literally on the lake (hence the name Lake Shore Drive) there was no exiting the car until necessary. Im not trying to get blown away in the city of wind. So we get to the venue and its a dope little spot, the crowd was real eclectic, live art happening, good djs spinning and the people were nice. One of our long time friends actually met us there since he lives about an hour outside of Chicago, which was nice since we havent seen him for a while. We were introduced to the music scene of Chicago and this wife was impressed. 

Shout out to Funk Trunk Records for the pictures and hosting us. Its always great to go somewhere new and meet great people. Especially a couple that seems to work just as hard and together as us. Shout out to Quinn and Brittany!
I wasnt able to make it to the Cincinnati show,I got my days mixed up thinking it was on a Saturday and not a Friday night and my sitter wasnt available on such short notice. But none the less, Sr still had a good time and was welcomed and well received from what I understand. This stop of course included 2llz and WIP, but they also took Mr. Go0dbar with them as well. The shots that were taken were amazing, shout out to the photographer (not sure who it is and 2llz isnt home for me to ask. lol) And of course you can see videos of the sets and more pictures on the Rmllw2llz fan page..

Well thats all I got for right now, go check the fan page, if you haven't heard Summers in Spain yet, well you know where to click to hear that.

Peace yall!
