Happy New Year!

 Hiya folks!

2020 was pretty good to me. 

I finally learned how to wear falsies and sweep people off their feet πŸ˜‹. I saw a lot of growth with the Mommy Oyoyo Podcast. I got a better job in the middle of the year after trying for over a year. I booked more therapy sessions this year to deal with life. I lost weight when I put the work in (erm, never mind that I stopped putting in the work and gained the weight back πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). I fell in love at first sight just 4 days ago (those who know know πŸ˜‹). 

I laughed, I cried, I danced, I prayed (not nearly enough), I created content, I saved money, I spent on myself (finally), I played, I traveled (safely), and more!


Coco is the number one thing/person I'm most grateful for. This year started off with me crying over potty training and if we'd ever get there... she decided on her own when she was ready - both daytime and nighttime.

Then came March and her school closing because of a positive case. Between March and July I juggled a customer service (phone-based) while she stayed home with me. I cried on some days, laughed at her antics, took her on walks and so much more. We might be getting back to her staying home cos I'm not liking the numbers I'm seeing on the news.

Early in the year, her father finally came over here and the transition to coparenting has had its ups and downs. We haven't done the best job but we haven't done the worst job either. I just want her to always know that both her parents love her very much and I will strive to ALWAYS put her needs first when it comes to coparenting.

Coco has grown so much this year! She's my little chatterbox, singing Energizer bunny and without a doubt, the best part of my life. I'm blessed to be her mummy and I pray for more for her in 2021! 

Thanks to my village for their support in raising her (and sometimes me) through the year. We love you all!

I pray for God's plans for me in 2021. I don't want to wing it. I don't want to plan without His input. I want whatever He has in store for me, my family, my career, my brands...

It won't be easy all the time or for everyone but I pray that we all remember that God promised He is with us in the deep waters and through the fire. 

Cheers to a great year ahead! Looking forward to closing some doors and opening new ones πŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΎ

With love,

Bodacious Berry!
