Twisted: 5-Day Pictorial
There are rare moments when photographs convey the narrative infinitely better than written or spoken word. This is such a moment. Photos were taken at the end of each day.

Mini Twists on Mini-Me: Oh, No She Didn’t!
The day my daughter came to me and asked me to put mini twists in her hair for our 2012 family vacay two things happened: I cursed Whitney (Naptural85) under my breath and then I passed out. Well, not in the literal sense. What I did do was crawl under my covers, pull them over […]
Bantu Knot Out for Your Little One
