I was looking though my posts from last November, trying to get a handle on what was going on in my life at that time, and I realized that I did NaBloPoMo last year and actually posted eEVERY day in November! WOW.
I also realized that today is the one year anniversary of having locs.
This was me, one year ago today( also me using a point and shoot!)
What a difference a year has made. I remember being so unsure as to what I wanted to do with my hair, if I actually wanted to take the chance and lock myself into locs.
Well I survived my first year and I must say that I’ve been pleasently surprised at myself. You see, I was always a prissy girl about my hair. Until I had a baby. I loved my hair, I got it done every 2 weeks on the dot. I went natural one year, went back to the creamy crack the next. But this is different. It’s amazing to me how it grows, how it feels, how it has a life of it’s own now. I don’t even mind the frizz( well, not really). I’ve come to appreciate the fuzziness, the unrulelyness, the single loc that always wants to stand up on top of my head no matter what I try to do to tame it.
I love the random advice I get from my mailman, from the EMT who comes when ever I call 911 for Pookah, from pookah’s pediatrician, from co workers. There is an amazing community of folks who have loced their hair around me and I’m glad to be getting to know them.
So, I love my hair, I love my locs and I am looking forward to seeing what the next year will bring!
Also, while we are at it, this is my first attempt at a self portrait with my Canon! With my remote :-).
It’s the little things that make me happy…..
