Providence 🍀good fortune 🍀luck 🍀This weekend saw me reach IG heights that I only previously dared to dream of in the quiet of my mind. But that is not what makes these three relatively clichéd words so invaluable to my existence. Their import lies in the relationships that I have formed here on IG. I have balanced life across two oceans for most of my life, the daughter of an American and a European. I attended a secondary school that represented nationalities from across 53 nations. My world has always been large yet my circle comfortably intimate. And then I met all of you. People that span ocean divides, continents, religions, political affiliations and you embraced me and one other. What is it about our relatively small braiding community that is the perfect model for the larger global expanse? Why are we able to look beyond the confines of our own narrow parameters, look past the differences and celebrate the similarities? What makes us able to support one another every step of our small or Herculean journeys? We are but a microcosm and yet our blueprint is one so solid that the world should take note! ⚠️Warning ⚠️ Corny approaching...NOW! To paraphrase Michael Jackson, "we are the world...we are the ones who make a brighter day...just you and me!" As this week begins, we celebrate one of our own, Kelly @hair_by_kellyb so please join me in wishing her many happy returns as she ushers in another great year! Kelly, you are a true gem and we wish you every happiness today and every other. We recreated one of your styles; wrapped french braid ponytails but added another element with two micro braids. We hope you like it. A massive thank you to Masha @littlemisscutieandme for organising us as she often does 🌹To all of you out there, thank you for the providence, the good fortune and the sheer luck to have you all in my life ❤️ Have a brilliant week!
