  This month I've had such fantastic opportunities to travel. I'm presently sitting in Chicago (last morning... can't believe I'm leaving as Lollapalooza is starting!

I just love how sometimes things align in a way in which someone shows up in your life, unexpected and you have that immediate connection. This past weekend during the July 4th holiday, which means Essence Festival in New Orleans, I had the pleasure of meeting Candace. I'd actually spotted Candace all over the place
