We Never Tangle Perfectly — Love Advice Sex Advice

We never tangle perfectly—no such thing.

It takes two they say to tangle. By law, the latter manifests a perfect imperfection—and in love no thing is wrong because all moves toward a beautiful righteousness. There are days we creak, some we crack, others we go and we go on and on. Heat. No cares for gas and electric bills. The entire house transforms into our playground, something like a speedway—no restrictions, but every round is practice—most end in untamable laughter, involuntary exhales, untranslatable words.

Blood, Muddy Water, and Naturalized Soup - LoveTrips™

Blood bound, muddy water and naturalized soup

it don’t matter—it’s all love, all familia, tribe.

We know, blood is thicker than water, and that soup can be served very thin. Yet, sometimes the extra contents of a body of water or bowl of soup can make blood almost irrelevant if you can catch my drift.

See being bound by blood to someone or someones is something I can never change—neither can you. However, relationships with your blood bound can change. Fortunately or unfortunately, many relationships do change, and some never do…some remain tight from day one, some continue to grow stronger with each passing year, others dissipate slowly or rapidly into distance. So while we may be bound by blood and have sense of obligation to a person, a love that cannot be severed by its very nature, we may not have the close ties regardless of how hard we try to force ourselves upon each other—and in the grand scheme of things as wrong as this may seem, it’s always divine, always righteous.

black belts and #rebelflags | Things my Didd’a Taught Me.

I stomped a child out on the blacktop back in kindergarten one time ’cause he said that his dad could beat my dad in a Karate match; turned out, his daddy and my daddy were good friends, even taught Karate in the same building for years—knew Karate was more about the ability to harness the power of your own spirit than the like of your two fists or your two feet—had nothing to do with competition because true power was derived from within—the ability to control not your opponent, but yourself—long story short, we are old friends now.

50 mouths to feed on low-low wedding budget—7 Tips | #WeddedWednesday

Food! You can’t have a wedding without food—well you can, but why on Earth would you want to? There are many ways to save tons of money when it comes to your wedding reception, especially if you are dedicated to staying true to your budget. By now, I am sure we have all heard the ancient proverb “It takes a village to raise a child…” well, for Frank and I, in our respective tribes you could say we never really reach true adulthood in our parent’s eyes. Some days this placement within the tribal hierarchy can prove to be a charming nuisance, but on most days, it will prove to be a perfect reflection of Mother Nature’s consistent nurturing of the life she created.  That said…everyone has a family! —blood or water-based, your family is family…it’s always tribal.

Dead horses, the unconventional…& diamonds cut from blood | #BrokeandBougie

Okay, so back to “How to live a fun & lavish life on a low-low budget?”

My intention is to always look my best and always be an unapologetic reflection—representation of my own light. Thus, I get to pick and choose at my own free will the trends and fades I indulge in, the places I go, the events I attend, and the spoils I spend my hard-earned coins on. Despite the fancy high-end price tags for generic sweatshop manufactured pieces and the glitz and glam of flashy lights, I choose my lavish.

RAIN on Our LOVE | #WeddedWednesday #ClearingDrafts

Our Malem was blessed with many showers of love, and although Wehe Ehimpe had settled around us with a Wanañi chill, all of our hearts were filled with warmth.

Unity—

We chose to tie the knot amongst family and friends both golden and young, and two who’ve yet to witness the sunshine or the rain for the first time. The raindrops descended from the heavens upon our knot, and if you know anything about the physical tying and untying of knots—you know a wet knot is a pretty difficult knot to undo. Thus, I praise our stars as often as I can for validating our love, and seeing to it that it remains strong, unwavering and everlasting.

Wedding vs Marriage?¿ —#WeddedWednesday|#BrokeandBougie

Wedding vs Marriage?¿ —#WeddedWednesday|#BrokeandBougie

“I don’t really want to marry you, I just want a lavish wedding…”  said someone somewhere boldy mmm…or possibly in confidence. . .

I’m not sure what’s gotten into people nowadays, but we have an annoying tendency to insist on putting the cart before the horse. We rush down the aisle…and sometimes it is simply for the purpose of saying “We’s married now!” The sad truth is—just because you performed a wedding ceremony and exchanged vows does not necessarily constitute that you are indeed married. Sorry, but not sorry to rain on anyone’s parade—eh, it rained own our wedding day, and I couldn’t have been more elated. Continue reading “Wedding vs Marriage?¿ —#WeddedWednesday|#BrokeandBougie”
