Somewhere along the way in BlogLand, I began following Sara’s blog. I read about her rvs, houses, babies, simplifying, dreads, photography, and traveling around. She became an inspiration to me to live simpler, travel to see the world, see the beauty all around us, and her dreads were just AWESOME.
I tried dreads once before as some of you may remember. They didn’t turn out as I wanted them to because, frankly, I didn’t have enough information to take care of them correctly. They all stuck together and they got greasy. Since I wasn’t happy after 7 months, I took them out.
I still longed for dreads though. I cut my hair thinking it would be less maintenance, but I ended up unhappy with that too. Then Sara and her family were in the AZ area, and traveling near by on their way to TX. Imagine my excitement when they came to visit for Sara to put in my dreads.
I’m lovin’ them! I wake up and my hair is done. No fretting, no styling, no products – the hair is in charge. I’m grateful I had the opportunity to meet Sara and her family, to get dreads, and to get another dose of inspiration to keep me asking what’s next in my journey?
