I woke up early and went through a bunch of old pictures on my old laptop, and was amazed at the journey.  And it all Started with a feather.   My sister Suzanne, the eldest of the Mocko 6, sent me this feather hair clip for Christmas in 2009.

Oh man, its the big day. I am 30 friggin years old. Wherever you are, do a little dance, say a little prayer, make a little (love) cheers for me tonight and send out some good vibes for this new year, please? I so cherish all of you, wonderful soul sistas.  So, I totally had this blog prepped, thinking that over the last week I would get in the 8 posts to reach my challenge.
