Saturday Morning Musings Vol. 7

On that 4C kinky curly hair…

...child please. This stuff is for real. I just spent like €200 on products since I’m running low on everything I need. You gotta have oils, you gotta have creams, you gotta have conditioners, you gotta have the right combs, you can’t sleep without a silk scarf or pillow or both just to be sure.

Give 'Em a Little Shoulder: Saturday Morning Musings

On boundaries...

...I'm thinking a lot lately about boundaries and our need to create them and enforce them to maintain a healthy balance in life.  This topic is turning into a blog post in my mind because it is sooooo important yet the concept of boundaries can seem a little fuzzy if not harsh. 

So although I'm giving a little shoulder in these pics, its not necessarily the cold shoulder.  Its a nice warm and cozy one for my friends and family to lean on and an inspirational one for others to see bared in its sheer vulnerability and courage.  Its showing my hard work on boundary-setting and how its paid off.
