I'm a long-time lurker and memories-scourer who finally decided to go legit. My name is Nikki, I'm from New Orleans, and I'm almost a year into my second set of dreadies.
In the words of Michael Scott on the most recent episode of The Office, "I look forward to our professional relationship."
the dawn of a new era - getting dreaded by my friend Brent in May 2009
Day One of dreads...pushing a baby (not mine) around in the French Market...no big deal...
Dreads about a month old, at Cornerstone Festival last summer. Complete with warpaint.
All fancied up with the boy, late summer.
Chillin' on the front porch of the community house, watching something terribly interesting stage right.
My favorite of our engagement pictures, taken last month. You can't see it very well in this one, but Brent has helped me extend most of my dreads with a friend's old set. They blend perfectly and looked every better once I dyed them all the same shade of dark brown. Now I can have the fancy low dread bun that I've always wanted for my wedding!
I guess that's it for now. Any other folks from New Orleans or south Louisiana on here?
