Have you ever done something and while you were doing it, you were in a surreal moment that felt like you were on the outside looking in? That happened to me yesterday while I was getting a routine highlight done at a snazzy little place in Kansas City. I mentioned I was stuck in a rut and needed a change to jolt me back to reality. Let's just say I walked in as a blonde with longish hair and I walked out a short haired brunette with red highlights. I have had short hair before. Notice my attractive picture to the right. I can't give my mother all of the credit for the stylish haircut though. I distinctly remember hiding in my bedroom with a pair of scissors and when I was called to lunch shoving handfuls of hair under the bed thinking no one would be the wiser when I came out! Unfortunatley, my First Grade school picture day was soon after my handiwork. So, bless my Mom's heart, she added her skills to mine and voila! Even though yesterday was with a trained professional, my heart is skipping a beat as I wake up on this new day and catch my reflection. I hope today as I walk out my door that I embrace my 6 year old self and smile like everything is perfectly normal.
I'm lucky to have found a person to spend my life with that loves and believes in me. He must be a special man because I am quirky, unorganized & think my cluttered thoughts aloud to him on a regular basis.
