Happy New Year & 2011 Recap!

Hi & Happy New Year my lovely Natural Chica readers!!

I had a wonderful & RELAXING holiday break and I hope you were able to enjoy the holidays as well! After I finished my last (yes LAST) graduate school class, I spent the break spending time with family in Florida, which is always a great time.

Clearly I'm a couple days late on the Happy New Year greeting but I couldn't dare put up my first post of 2012 without warm wishes! 2011 was a blur, but was filled with so many memorable moments. As I look back on 2011, all I can say is thank you ALL so much for your continued support of this website and my YouTube channel (Nikkimae2003)! Can you believe that this July 2012 will mark year 3 in my natural hair/blogging journey?? Talk about time flying quickly!

This past year was filled with moments I wouldn't have even dreamed of happening 2 years ago...
