Holiday Family Time
It’s that time of the year where I usually begin to reflect, refresh and reset for the new year. The time when family gatherings happen (rather you want them to or not).
The time when cooking happens in 8-10 hour intervals.
Since our twins have gotten older I think this is the first year I haven’t felt the stresses of the holiday season. The stress of getting everything “right”, whatever “right” might be.
I work out of the home now 40+ hours a week. The last thing on my mind is preparing a complicated pinterest recipe after working 9 plus hours, including commute time to and from work.
What I need is music time.
Music allows me to reflect and refresh my mind, body and soul. How about you? I’ve been musically driven as far back as my first childhood memory. In fact, one of my first memories with my husband and I was Mary J Blige’s first album, “What’s the 411″. Remember that? I hold Mary near and dear to me and my 25 year relationship with my husband. She is our “go to” artist.
Having an opportunity to review my girl new Mary’s album, of course I had to! Take a peak, take a listen and tell me your thoughts?
I absolutely love Therapy. I’m sure we could all use a little bit right now especially with the holidays fastly approaching us. Honestly, amongst the African American community therapy has never been something we talked about or entertained.
I’m more than excited to see Mary not only addressing what was never really talked about in my community in the past but putting it to music. For me, Mary’s voice has always came across as being downright truthful and sincere in all that she sings about. All in all, I’m diggin Mary’s new album and loving that she chose to change her enviroment to record this album, love, love love the whole London vide that she has intertwined into this new album.
Collaborating with my boy Sam Smith is absolutely huge. Um, can we say an Amen! Give this album a listen, get into her vibe of the music and let me know your thoughts about it. I can talk music all day

I participated in the Mary J Blige The London Sessions album review program as a member of bLink Marketing Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.
