The Well-Heeled Wife

When it comes to marriage, what often starts out as a fairy tale can quickly convert into a mystery, comedy, horror or war game.  The key is to indulge in it with the same intensity of a page-turner…

"Yes, I am my hair. We are both natural, beautiful and strong. We have both suffered at the hands of those who didn’t know how to treat us, or help us thrive. We are both growing. We are both getting older. We are both a lot healthier since eliminating bad treatment. We both love being touched, caressed and spoiled." ~Hakim Nuraldin

I knew I wanted to marry you the first time I ever saw you - 33 years ago.

What better way to premiere the new view from my married shoes…

This story on First Lady Michelle Obama showed up in my Facebook page from  Ieashia Renee McKenzie. After reading it, you will understand why I would love to have tea with this influential woman…
 
One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the President’s secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked
Michelle, why was he so interested in talking to you. She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “so if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant”, to which Michelle responded, “no, if I had married him, he would now be the President.”

After reading this I will never forget my strength as a woman..EVER…there is nothing better than a strong woman who knows her worth!!!!

Life is short. Heighten it with stilettos.
