She is passionate, energetic, and perseverant and is the epitome of PEP.

...As my mother would say, "She’s all grown up now in America and is officially an adult!!!" I would definitely agree with Mommy as today marks 18 years since I moved from Jamaica and made America (Maryland) or as Daddy calls it “MerryLand” my home. What a journey it has been!!!
At the time when I left unexpectedly to visit the States for 3-6 months, I was blessed to have a #BossLady who told me, “Rosie, you’re awesome and I understand what you’re going through so take as much time as you need in the States. Your job will be here when you return.”
As it turned out, I found love and other adventures and made America my home. As we say in my circle, “Anybody who come a America and nuh mek something out of demself, dem WUTLISS!”
I’ve worked hard and am very proud of my accomplishments and I thank the Creator for keeping me safe and grounded. The DMV has been good to me, and I think I’ve been great for the DMV and I actually love this area for so very many reasons; the biggest reason is that 18 years ago when I was at my most vulnerable, I found HIM and he took one look at me and said, “Beautiful One. It is going to be alright. Don’t leave here...yet.”
“...and doth I protest too much.” Not that time, I didn’t protest. I listened to him. I trusted him. He was right. He was right about everything. I wish I could find him right now and give him 18 kisses and hugs.
Look at me now, 18 years later. I’ve truly learned and grown, soooooo much and for that, I remain thankful.

Long time no speak...
It has been almost a year since we connected. COVID hit us and is still hitting us, and guess what? I am not the only one who used the time to slow down and do more self-reflecting. It felt good to be missed but it felt much better to take some time to pause as I dealt with a LOT since we last connected. Balance is key in my life and I know that you would prefer if I spent time taking care of myself versus running around like a chicken without a head, so thanks for your patience. Besides, how much running could I have done with all those restrictions imposed due to The Big C?
This is how 2020 Happened for me:
Well, I started off 2020 in January as I had to visit my mother for her 75th birthday (and check out Rebel Salute), then went to Rhode Island in February, as way of celebrating my return to being an employee (and to do some business). By March, lockdown was in full effect so I stayed in my house until cabin fever got the better of me, and I took a trip out to Solomons Island (in Maryland, where I live). I did a lot of traveling in Southern Maryland, and spent many a days running by the water to clear my head. In Peptember (not a typo), I went to Delaware and Baltimore and then did my first plane ride since February to Boston. In December, I made it a point of duty to spend the last week in Jamaica, and here we are now...in 2021 and almost in February!
