Kid Fresh and Lady T❤️It's our anniversary weekend so I'm reflecting😍 We are both 80's kids so getting dressed up for this party reminded me of one of the things that bonded us together when we were dating… music❤️! I'd never met a guy who loved music, dancing and lyrics as much as I did AND from all genres… we were raised in the church so we loved gospel, but also Eric B and Rakim, LL Cool J, Run DMC, New Edition, Prince, Michael Jackson, Duran Duran, Tears for Fears, the Police (to name a few) We loved it all! Who are some of your fav 80's groups/songs? #22yrs #us #kirkandtammy #krushgroove #goodmusic
Tammy, who is always sharing nuggets of wisdom about being a wife, is very intentional about keeping her marriage healthy.
“I love being his wife, but I’m also very intentional about staying his girlfriend! I knew he wouldn’t mind me wearing the flat sandals that I thought about wearing, but I chose to wear the wedges that I know he loves. I pay attention to what makes him smile! I share this not because I’ve always done it perfect, but I grew to learn the balance. Although sometimes he gets my bonnet lol, he should also get his Boo!” she shared.
And Kirk Franklin, never misses an opportunity to honor his wife.
“When I was a youngin’ I used to pray, Lord send me a girl look like Lisa Bonet. Like 20 years later He said “OK”, and dropped off a gem named Tammy Renee! BARS!?? #3:33″
Kirk and Tammy have 4 beautiful children, and the couple’s oldest daughter, Carrington Franklin got married in 2016.
Anyway, Happy Anniversary to one of our favorite couples…Kirk and Tammy Franklin.
