Charlotte SLs Gathering - Keeps Getting Better!

I can't even express how much fun we had this afternoon -- lots of laughter, great food (courtesy of Sadie's Soulful Southern), questions, answers, new trainees/consultants, success stories, encouragement, off-the-chain giveaways, hair styling tips and lessons ... get the picture? Maybe these will help:

Mimi contributed her gorgeous handmade Tomoka's Twists and Ties and even gave us lessons on how to wear them!

And not to be outdone, Tonita graced us with her spirit all the way from MI by way of her fun and colorful handmade creations; headbands, spa fizzies, kleenex cozies, hip pursettes and plush guest slippers - wow! - Tonita, you are one busy & talented lady! Check her out for yourself at

Needless to say, we were blown away by the generosity of both of these SL'd ladies. They added quite a bit of abundance and fun to our event. Of course we couldn't make things too easy, so these giveaways had to be "earned". Not everyone in our party was SL'd, but everyone had surely done her research. I was quite impressed that all knew most of the answers to our SLs quiz. Still, each of us left the event more informed and, if possible, more inspired. We also left with more friendships and happiness to carry us through to our next get-together.

Yes, looks like we've got a tradition going so we'll be looking at doing this again before the summer is over; send me an e-mail or comment to this post if you'd like to be kept in the loop.

Thanks to each of you for making this such a wonderful afternoon, especially those of you who drove a distance to get here. Thanks also for making me proud and firm on my decision to wear Sisterlocks! We're a unique group and we're definitely more than a "hairstyle".
