Commemorating our First Year!

I am stopping in today to say a big big thank you to all the readers of Below The Waist over our first year of existence. I started this blog simply to document my hair journey while allowing others to share in it so they too may benefit. I appreciate the support from all the lovely readers and I'm grateful to have you guys be a part of BTW!

That was just a little recap of the last year. Take a trip down memory lane, will ya?! 

There is sooo much more in store. And I hope you will continue to read the posts and engage me through your comments. I have been a bit busy the last few weeks (months?), forgive me, that's just how it is sometimes. But I have found new inspiration and motivation at this one-year mark and I think you'll like what's to come.

Once again, thank you!!!
