  2. Love my beautiful friend family ❤️❣️ Rain is nice , don't see it much in California. Dc New you needed a car Wash 😂😉😁

  3. Yayyy so happy dad had an apartment available and you’re able to have your own space. It’s looks nice comfy and cozy! I love the clip of Zari dancing with grandma while shopping. Such precious memories being made with family that you’ll get to treasure! Tyfs 😊❤️👍🏼

  4. Loved your video tfs. The apartment was cute. It is such a change for Zari and I guess she would be a little scared. But you are so good with her. 👍

  14. It's so nice that your family has the means to help you with your own space! That has to take off such a huge stress, and be a nice quiet space at the end of the day. So hope you find and get a place you all love soon!

    Ohh, How do you use your jack fruit? How is it?! I've been dying to try it but haven't been able to find any in my area just yet (admittingly, I haven't stopped at Whole Foods yet either… I do most of our shopping at Aldi and they're opposite directions of each other). I have so many recipes pinned to try with some though! lol

    Hope you and Zari enjoy your visiting time, and don't get too stressed house hunting… Hope Papa Bear is holding down the old fort with the pups okay, Sending the best of wishes to you all! ♥♥♥♥♥

  15. So glad ya'll made it. And have your own space. That will make the transition easier for ya'll. Love and prayers from Oklahoma

  16. Welcome home, Rymingtahn. Good to have you and the family back. Yes, this humidity is serious, but the Fall will more than make up for it…it's absolutely beautiful. I was born and raised in DC, and still can't get used to the heat. I'm sure you've seen the change in our city, and it looks nothing like it did when you left. I am from here, and most of it, I don't recognize. Still, it's beautiful, and I look forward to your journey here, and lots of adventures!

  17. Our God is a Awesome God🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 Amen and Amen….You have a Beautiful Family👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾❤🤩🥰💖🤗💛🌞

  20. Im new to your channel. What type of schools have you had Zari in since she was old enough? She is exceptional!

  21. When I was Zaris age, thunderstorms scared me too. Until my Mom told me it was just Angels in heaven bowling and the really loud thunder was them getting a strike. Did the trick! 😂😂🤣

  22. I LOVE it..Your Dad is the real MVP…Look, can you DM me if he has some AIRBNB properties, cause well you know when visiting DC, finding a place to stay is not fun..LOL..You'll will find just the house you need..

  23. So happy you guys made it safe to your family. Girl you are so blessed to have the love and support from your family. I am loving the vlogs!!!

  26. I was so happy to see a vlog up! Yes, you're truly blessed to have family and a supportive one at that. I cannot wait to see the journey. Oh that rain…man, I haven't seen rain like that since I have been in this high desert.

  29. You are an awesome mom and have taught Zari to eat such healthy food. She couldn’t be cuter if she tried!! ❤️ Fantastic!!!!!

  30. I'm copying your recipes, so please keep sharing! The other day, I was like…hmmmm… let's do a sweet potato steak bc I didn't have zucchini or squash 😆❤

  31. I enjoy watching you and your family. Zari is so intelligent, with a great vocabulary for her age. Dinner looked delish and I plan to try it. I will have to travel 40 mins to get to a Whole Foods store, but it will be fun to shop their, and see what they have. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!! 😍

  32. I COMPLETELY feel you on that humidity thing! Just moved back to Michigan from Washington State, and 85° here with humidity is waaayyy hotter than 85° with low humidity in Wash State!! I DO NOT like the humidity and did not miss it, even though I was born and raised here!
    I also had not heard thunder while I was in Washington State, so I actually was glad to hear it once I got back! That tripped me out that I was excited to hear it!!.
    So happy for you guys! Hopefully you have found your home by now and are getting settled in, though I do have to get used to seeing you guys NOT in the desert!!! And hopefully Papa Bear will videotape his journey across the state with the fur-babies!!

  33. Glad you guys made it back to the east coast ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️So awesome that your dad gave you a kool place to chill until you find something of your own ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️god Is good & Zari is adorable as always ❤️❤️❤️😊😊😊

  34. What a wonderful birthday gift of finally being home with your family! I'm sure the only thing to make it better would be having Zonie and the pups with you. Won't be long now. You and Zari will be busy househunting, etc. I can feel your "lightness of spirit" and it's awesome!! I bet your parents are so happy to have you nearby. TYFS 👍👍👍🤗🐶🐕🐾😁🇺🇸
