After an early meeting at work I checked my email to find a forwarded message from my friend KDizzle. The article is from Essence and surprisingly my face appears! I immediately freak out of course. It was my hope to make the cut for the online gallery when I was asked to take the picture, but to be the featured picture for the outgoing newsletter and the Essence homepage!?!?! Totally unexpected. Still so excited!
The event itself wasn’t what I expected. In my opinion there were more clothing and jewelry vendors than resources for naturals.

I still loveeee being in the presence of women doing their own thing, rocking the hair that grows from their heads and working it! What a great way to end the year! YAY!
