Coming From Where I’m From: A Goddess in Toronto

G.I., modeling at her first band launch. Summer 2011!

Short and simple. I’m currently reading a book entitled “It’s All About The Moon When The Sun Ain’t Shining“, written by Ernest Hill. I read a few chapters last night before turning in and as I read a quote from the main character’s mama stood out to me. I began to question whether it was true.

Or have you ever allowed your folks and/or friends to influence your decision regarding a partner because the person was from a less than “respectable” family?

Sound off! What are you thoughts on that quote? Agree or disagree? Talk to me!
