I attended a wonderful, motivational conference in Atlanta in June. I was having a great time going to the breakout sessions and shopping for School Counselor knick-knacks!
I was staying in a wonderful hotel in downtown Atlanta. While riding in the elevator on my way to one of the sessions, I met a fellow Sisterlock sister, we greeted each other and and admired each others locks. She then asked me if I was Chocolocs!!! I was so excited to know that I had actually met someone who had seen my blog!! She introduced herself as Candace, and I realized that I had seen her blog too!
At the time, I was a math teacher transitioning into high school counseling. I absolutely LOVE my new career. There really isn't anything else I would rather do! To all of the Sisterlocked counselors (school, community or whatever!) leave me a message. I'd love to hear how you feel about counseling!

On July 7th 2007 I posted a blog called Natural SDA Sisters! In that entry I showcased some of the natural sister at my church. One of those beautiful women was Sisterlock goddess. She introduced me to Sisterlocks, hers were the first Sisterlocks I had ever seen. she wore her then three-year-old locks so elegantly, I was convinced that that was the way I wanted to wear my hair.
Sadly, she is moving away from Michigan to further her career in Pennsylvania. Good bye SG and thank you for sharing Sisterlocks with so many natural women in South East Michigan! We'll miss you!!
I also posted a Get Well Soon blog for SG on 24 March 2007. It is amazing how time fies! I believe it is important to make time for close friends and family because you never know how long you are going to have them around!!

The first three pictures show my typical look, the rest shows my Free Styling!!!!
So . . . What do you all think?!

My style was achieved by using Caruso Steam Rollers. I left them in for about two hours this morning. I'm noticing that as my hair gets longer, the curl falls out quicker!

I went to
Creole introduced me to Hannah Ranay who had been following my blog and was surprised to see how much my locks had grown since I last posted! Well, that was all the motivation I needed! Knowing that my SisterLocks sisters had been going to my Site over the past ten months, only to find it unchanged, bothered me. I promised her (and myself!) that I would post the pictures I had been collecting over that time and update everyone on my Journey!
I washed and set my hair three days earlier on Flex Rods.
