To Have and To Hold: Charlotte, featuring working mom Tyyawdi Hands (#TOHAVECHARLOTTE)

"To Have and To Hold Charlotte" Cast

If you know and follow this blog you understand that I have an affinity for Charlotte, North Carolina. I used to live there. I feel like I grew up there. I feel like the friends I made there became my family. Those friends are also my people. They get me in a way that many don't. They appreciate the complexities and textures that make me who I am. 

In a word, they are my people.

David and Tyyawdi Hands
So when people ask me questions like, "how do I do it all?" I immediately think of my friends who are doing what I am doing and so much more. In particular, I think of my friend, Tyyawdi Hands. She is a wife, and mother, and a freakin' judge--an elected official who is determining the fates of people every day. And besides being a judge, she is now the star of a reality TV show.


To be clear, Tyyawdi isn't a working mom in theory--like she says she has a job but never goes there. She is a judge. She holds court, researches cases and issues decisions. She is the veritable bad ass who is kicking ass and taking names. This power house, along with her husband David, is in a new show entitled, "To Have and To Hold, Charlotte".

Don't miss the show premiere's on the OWN network on June 1st at 10:00 PM. Also, follow The Ty Hands on Instagram so that you can keep up with the lives of her and the other cast members. Also, y'all, I am going to Charlotte to attend the show's premiere party. So excited about that. It's going to be a good time! Now, what should I wear? Open to suggestions!!!

Here's an example of an extremely insecure man-child:

The scary thing is that many men actually think this way. Anyway I am laughing at how pathetically insecure this loser is. His basic message is that he refuses to date any woman over the age of 25, LOL.
