New Blog, better direction for I AM Curly Locks

As many of you may know my daughter Eliana was born with Spina Bifida.  I spoke about the briefly in a post titled "The Diagnosis."  There are many challenges that come from having a child with Spina Bifida or any other disability for that matter.  I have decided to start a separate blog dedicated exclusively to my families journey living with Spina Bifida "For the Love of Elly: Our Journey Living with Spina Bifida."  This has been one of the most challenging and growing experiences in my life, and I strive to create awareness and prevention.

For inquiring minds, Spina Bifida is a birth defect that involves the incomplete development of the spinal cord during gestation.  There are several different forms of Spina Bifida.  It is estimated that Spina Bifida occurs 7 out of 10,000 live births in the United States. For more information about Spina Bifida encourage you to visit

With all that being said I will be continuing to maintain "I AM Curly Locks," and will post several times throughout the week.  I AM Curly Locks will function as my personal blog which will include;
  • News Post:My views on local, national, and international news
  • Thrifty Thursdays and Frugal Fridays: My experiences thrifting and being a frugal mom
  • My adventures cooking
  • Natural hair stories
  • Product and Book Reviews
  • Style Post: My style preferences
Pretty much anything that is going on in my mind, when I feel like posting.  This isn't all that it will consist of, but a few things that I know for sure.  I hope that you have an opportunity to visit my new blog at and would love if you would subscribe there as well.
