Late Post

Well folks, I'm sorry. I was suppose to post some new pics after my retightening on January 3rd. Unfortunetly after my retightening session, on my way to my mom's I got a terrible call informing me my very good friend had died. James was more than my friend, he was family. He had been battling colon cancer and issues related to it since 2007. His passing came as a complete surprise, especially since I had just spoken to him the previous Sunday briefly due to him telling me he would call me back since he was talking to his mother. Anyway... I just haven't felt like blogging. My heart has been so heavy with the loss of my friend. I can't even bare to remove his number off my speed dial on my iPhone. I loved him very much. I try to lift myself up by saying that one day I'll see him again in glory.

Ok, on to something more positive. Next week I will have been on lockdown for 6 months. How exciting is that! My SL consultant did acknowledge that my hair is starting to lock, but......of course I still have a whole lot of perm on the length of my hair. This is and will continue to be a journey, a long one. I've been debating about if I'll want my consultant to start cutting my permed ends when I reach my 1 yr. lockerversary this summer. Then I think, well I'll just leave my hair alone and let it do it's thang without touching it. For those of you who have started with permed ends, share if you will or have cut off your permed ends, or if you are debating the issue like I am. Otherwise enjoy the pictures above. I did a little styling for my friends funeral. Turned out pretty cute for my first updo.

Love, peace, and no hair grease.

P.S. Rest in peace James, I love you.

I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend. Losing a close, close friend is sometimes worse than losing a family member. My friend Gary passed almost 10 years ago and I still can't put into words the loss that I feel. I pray your strength and comfort.

Your locs are lovely and that updo is SLAMMIN!!
