During that first cut, I learned that while we look and carry ourselves very different on the outside, inside we share a lot of the same struggles and dreams. Today, five years later, our friendship has grown beyond the commonalities of motherhood. She’s my party-decorating-partner-in-crime, and like me, believes no social gathering is really good, unless costumes are involved. Whenever I spend time with her, I always return home walking a little taller...more so than can be explained by hairspray alone.
On 4th of July, she messaged me to say she and the kids were having a lemonade stand and were going to donate all the profits to Action for Autism St. Louis– an organization near and dear to our family’s heart as their support has helped us maintain Noah’s academic and social skills through his participation at Camp Happy Day.
Her kids were so enthusiastic and thought of everything...even name tags. Below are the commercials they created and Eraka posted on her Facebook page to entice customers.
If you are in need of a new 'do. Visit "Eraka Scissorhands" at Trim - A Hair Salon in Kirkwood, MO.
