I just had to write this one after all the different conversations I overheard today, regarding Valentine’s Day. Happy Valentine’s Day if you celebrate it, and never mind if you don’t.

Love always, Keni! ‘All I am … Continue reading V is for lovers

I have been away from social media for a … Continue reading Not one of us 2
I first saw this on Dr AOA’s blog and then I also discovered Nana Ama Agyeman Asante‘s list. Initially, I started compiling my list out of curiosity to see what would pop into my mind and if I could make it to 100. It turns out that I had so many things to write down that I was tempted to shift the number to 150. Ladies and gentlemen, … Continue reading 100 things that make me happy
