April 21, 2007 Northern CA SL Gathering!

Hi All:
If you live in Northern Cal and missed the get-together yesterday, you missed out on a great time. First of all, kudos to GIGirl, organizer of the event. Her hard work paid off. Actually this was a first for me, and im really glad I went. We met in Oakland at a Puerto Rican restaurant named Sotritos. You needed to come hungry because they feed you alot. The food was quite good. I met some very beautiful, enlighted, and well spoken women. We all had alot to talk about of course, we all had one thing in common, out sisterlocks. No matter what stage in the locking process everyone's hair looked great. It was obvious that each of us were proud of our hair.
Having my two sister's there was an extra special treat for me. My oldest sister Dee hapened to meet up with her old college friend that she hadn't seen in 10 years. It was quite moving to see their suprise reunion. I arrived home that evening with my heart full of glee! I look forward to our next gathering.

    Aya,

    It was such a pleasure meeting you and your sisters, (and niece - she's a trooper) on Saturday. I am in awe that the three of you look so fabulous and are getting to share this loc journey together. How cool is that?

    Great pictures! Looks like you had a blast. I hope I can organize an event in my area one day. It would be great to be in the company of Sisterlocked women.

    I think I already told you this. I am from Oakland. I have not been back since my twins were 5 months old. They are 4 years and about 5 months old now. Wow four years passed so quickly. I have now been in Texas 19 years.

    I don't know all of the sites of Oakland because I was not an adult and free to come and go as I please. But it sounds like you ladys picked a great place to meet and had an excellent time. Thanks for sharing this event with us.
