Coffee sipping in the 901

Happy day friends!!!! 

I know it’s been a while since I published a blog post. I said to myself, why don’t you blog about what you love doing in Memphis. I love to patronize all the local cafes and coffee shops in my city. There are two new coffee shops that I recently patronized called Inspire Community Coffee and Levee Coffee and Creamery. 

I must say I enjoyed both of these coffee shops, but out of the two, Inspire Community Coffee was my favorite and the coffee shop I will frequent weekly. Inspire is a local business that hires people from the local community. I love companies that invest back into the local community. Local businesses create jobs and add wealth to the local community. 

Inspire not only serves coffee, but they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Might I add that they also have Vegetarian and Vegan options as well. 

Inspire coffee is located 510 Tillman Street in the Binghampton area of Memphis, Tn. 

The cheese quesadillas and the garden salad was absolutely delicious. They offer a lunch special quesadilla and salad or a quesadilla and chili for only $7. 

Levee Creamery was hmmmm, just okay in my opinion. I really don’t have to go again. I must say the pistachio custard was very good, and if I were to go back it would be just to purchase the custard. The coffee at this particular coffee shop wasn’t too tasty, I’ve made better coffee at my house in my personal opinion.

Happy blogging,

Whit Michelle’s favorite Summer moments

I’ve had some really great moments in my city #Memphis!!! I’ve gotten a chance to experience new restaurants in Memphis, attend one of my sweet friend’s wedding, and attend another friend’s very first food festival #butcherboardfestival!!! 

This Summer has also brought the unthinkable! About two weeks ago I lost one of my older cousins to suicide. I can honestly say this has left me mentally unstable. My heart is broken. I have asked myself, "what could we have done, why hadn’t I seen him in such a longtime, and what was bothering him so bad that led him to take his own life?"

Death is never easy, but suicide is definitely not easy to deal with! It is so important to have a relationship with Jesus, and to seek counseling when you are battling with mental illness. I will be transparent enough to say, I too have dealt with depression, but because of my relationship with Christ, my Pastor interceding for me, God sustained me!!!! To God Be the glory!!!! 

Here are a few pictures of my Summer fun!!!

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King

We all know Dr. King for his infamous Mountain Top speech, this speech has been recited in our churches (The Black Church), and at Black History programs in our schools. We also know Dr. King as one of the greatest Civil Rights leaders to ever walk the face of this earth.  

Here is some of the video footage and pictures I was able to capture during my experience of the #MLK50 celebrations in my city, where Dr. King was assassinated, Memphis, Tn.I must say that after all the Black History programs I’ve attended, and all of the speeches I’ve heard made about Dr. King, were not as sentimental for me as the events I witnessed during the #MLK50 celebrations. 

To hear people like Rev. Jesse Jackson speak of his experiences with Dr. King during the civil rights era made me realize that I must do more for my generation and my community in order to see change.

I also participated in the I AM A MAN march, this was a wonderful experience because I’ve never participated in a march before. I got to experience what Dr. King and other civil rights leaders did in the 1960’s so that we (Blacks) could have the same rights as (Whites). 

We as people, I mean Black, Hispanic, Whites, and etc, must come together and see one another as human beings and not for the color of our skin. We are all God's people and He has no perspective person. Let’s get ready to turn our dreams into realities!!!! We need each other!!!

With Love,
