Dear Miss @kathyromero YOU ARE A GENIUS!! The reason i was able to pull of a birthday party fit for a queen, is because of this queen here, i cannot even explain the magic this woman created. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me something i will never forget. Right now this woman is getting ready for 2 more events because she is indeed super woman. Oh and Kathy, in all the wonderful madness i forgot to tell you, you looked beautiful.
Stay tuned more to come.
I bet you thought I’d stopped for the holidays. Nope!!! I actually went harder. I worked out every day in Japan, got back worked out, worked out in Puerto Rico and got right back to it in NYC. Progress requires you to be dedicated and constant. So for me the small triumphs are huge rewards.
Strength is up
Mobility is up
Body fat down
Muscle tone up

As i sit here in Japan to write this, my mind is blown. 2 years ago, a little show that I started a journey with in London 2 years prior to that, opened on Broadway at the Jacobs theatre @bwaycolorpurple changed my life beyond all expectations. These last two years have been a profound adventure, I have learned so much, lost a little but gained tenfold. I am extremely lucky to have had this show be part of my life, i doubt that will ever change and I’m very proud of that. I am proud of the person it has made me and the things it has shown me. It has become my common thread, the gift to me that keeps on giving and i am ever grateful. The very real and literal blood, sweat and tears spent on this show was and is always going to be worth it. Celie left her mark in indelible ink and I’m ok with that, i can think of worst ways to be tainted.
All this to say this show was a moment and if you missed it, you missed out.
Happy 2 year anniversary @bwaycolorpurple may you live on and on.
