“M” Is For Mother

Yup.  This is my mother.  My 61-year old mother. The mother who everyone mistakes for my older sister.  All the time.  Yes, it’s annoying.  But I love her all the same. (I’m just saying–God needs to make sure those genes kick in when I get that old).

My mother played quite a role in my decision to go natural–and by that I mean she was natural on the sly for two years and I had no clue–so sneaky, Queen of Protective Styling!!!  I see you.  But no, really, what she showed me was that just because going natural was more of a health decision for me, it didn’t mean that it would be impossible to maintain.

I mean, look at that face! #jealous

That being said, I thought I’d pay homage to my mother in all her inspiring, fabulous glory on this Mother’s Day.

Protective styling like a pro.  I’m still relaxed in this picture, but my mother loved to demonstrate just one of the many possible hairstyles I could try while transitioning.

She is always there for the most important moments in life.  And also to help my pocket by doing my hair! Protective styling together!!

And she’s always stunning in a headwrap (called a “gele”) and our native attire!

So to all the mothers out there inspiring the rest of us with your love, your courage, your strength, and your style, I say Happy Mother’s Day!

How has your mother inspired you over the years?


    • Haha it sure don’t, and thanks! She loves to hear how young she looks and of course is delighted whenever guys my age hit on her lol. #Moms
