Love is splendor


Love is... waking up chastising yourself for bemoaning a shampoo & conditioner on the road run after a hot oil treatment ... only to be handed rum cake & gift set of luxurious Bahamian hair masques 30 min later as a thank you gift for mentally preparing your friend for her first Bahamian escape.
