Songs To Write To (Holiday Edition)

I have to admit that these past few years, the holidays have not been my favorite times of the year and it’s been a bit hard to get festive in any fashion.

Not sure if I’m the only writer who feels they thrive with period pieces, or settings in the past, but that’s my thing.

#HisTablesSpinNice, Artist Spotlight : Jalen Hemphill

They say that you should always show love to and/or support those who do the same for you. Well, there’s been quite a few people in my corner; but none who have pushed me as much and as tough (lovingly) as my little brother from another mother, Jalen.
