Toni Love in Baltimore Oct 7th at Peace & A Cup of Joe!

I LOVE my city but the only way I grow as an artist is to push myself outside of my comfort zone. The artists in Baltimore MD are so welcoming to Philly artists and I am looking forward to returning there with some new poetry as well as fan favorites! I will be reading and performing poetry Friday, October 7th in Baltimore, Maryland at Peace and a Cup of Joe. Continue reading

Rewriting my story and owning it!

I was clearing out my “drafts” folder and realized this post was never published. Two years ago, just eight months before the release of my debut EP “The Restoration”, I was given the opportunity to share the stage with two Maryland-based poets which was my first time as a paid feature.

The Balancing Act: You can have it all, just not all at once.

I remember the day I started writing again. I was a full-time stay at home mom and business owner, six years into my marriage, lobbying with my son’s school to get his IQ tested and nursing an infant. I wasn’t getting much sleep at night and had to find time to juggle clients, housework and bills, babies and PTA meetings during the day. Needless to say my house never looked like spotless ones in the Parenting magazines! Continue reading

Back to life…back to reality…

It was the first time that I purposely chose not to try and “use” the time to cram in every library, museum or other extra curricular event that looked exciting and intriguing during the holiday break. They both get so over-worked (in my opinion) at school that I wanted them to just do nothing for a change. Continue reading
