Long time & new hair

Long time, indeed!

Almost a month has gone by since my last post and much has happened. Probably not much in terms of excitement for you, but it has been a busy time for us. I'll try to be good the next few days and do some posts to get this blog moving again

Among the fun updates: I got a new haircut. This time last week, I was thoroughly convinced I'd continue to let my hair grow out (it was about 4-5" past my shoulders) and let it return to my dirty blondish color (I had a temporary dye done in March for kicks-- never had done that before!!).

Upon reflection, I suddenly changed my mind last week. My longish hair was hard to keep looking professional. And, heck, I'm not using super-bad-for-my-hair dye (I'm using high-end stuff that looks GOOD and isn't stripping my hair and is done by a professional). And for some reason, going darker in the summer is more fun. :) Maybe back to blonde in the winter? Luckily, I have a great hairstylist.

Anyway, long story short, I made a spur-of-the-moment appointment last week, got into an appointment that someone else had vacated, and I got my hair all fixified:

So much fun. AND, because it's shorter, I can easily make the hair straight (blow dry) or make it show more of my natural waves (airdry overnight). I love it, it looks professional, AND, I don't have to fuss muss with it.
