Celebrating Love, & Talking Hair

Sonya & Tara

May 28, 2014 was our 20 year wedding anniversary. We went on a short get away to a lovely resort for a few days – no kids – and we truly enjoyed ourselves. Words cannot explain how much I love this man. He’s my everything!

Beach and Water

The resort was located on the beach, and our room had a beautiful view of the beach and the water from our balcony. The temps were cool but the sun shined every day that we were there. There was little to no humidity which worked well for my hair! Before we left for the trip I did a twist out and wore it that way the first day and then with the headband. Very no fuss which is what I like!


Not only did we celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary, but I’ve also reached my one year milestone of being natural! Creamy Crack Free is the way to be!! YAY ME!! 🙂 This morning after washing my hair (something I normally do on the weekend instead of during the week), I decided to blow dry it out. I haven’t done this in 5 or more months. After oiling and detangling my hair I proceeded to blow out my hair with the comb attachment on the end of my blow dryer. Boy was I surprised by the volume! Us naturalista’s cannot say enough about SHRINKAGE and how major it is for our hair!

Afro Blowout

Now I totally feel like Pam Grier or Angela Davis with my big, beautiful afro! My wonderful sister in law has offered to flat iron my hair for me, another thing I haven’t done since going natural. At this point I feel it’s necessary because I need my ends clipped. I’ll be sure to post pictures when that happens!

Looking at my hair and my two daughter’s natural hair, I’m simply happy. Happy at how healthy our hair is, happy at the growth all of our hair is experiencing because I’m taking much better care of our hair. My girls and I LOVE our natural hair and how beautiful and versatile it is. I cannot believe it’s already been a year for me, but I look forward to the many years ahead (God willing) of being naturally beautiful!
