I love my hair: spread [your] love project

Victoria over at garden of eden designs has declared this week, spread [your] love week to promote positive body image. People (including me) don't appreciate and love themselves enough. Every single person is beautiful and has a huge impact on the people in our lives.

That being said, I personally love my hair. Now, my hair and I have a strong love/hate relationship. When I was little my mom loved playing with my long curls. In middle school I remembering spending nights crying, wishing I had thin straight hair like all the popular girls and hopelessly attempting to straighten my hair every day.

Then in high school it hit me. I am myself, not the "popular girls". I began wearing what I wanted, doing the things I loved and I started wearing my hair natural, crazy, thick, curly. My hair is me, it's my heritage and I love it.

So, spread [your] love this week! I also think it would be nice to share what you love about the wonderful people in your life this week as well. We should always do that, but we all get a little distracted by life.

I also love my very talented best friend, who made me this ring. I lovelovelove it.
