If you are a follower of my blog, you know that I am ditching the dye, and going natural. I guess I didn't realize how long this is going to take. Months and months.
I'm not sure I can do a super short haircut, but I did get it cut shorter, just to help speed things up a little. (It's only been 8 weeks, and I'm already impatient!)
I loathe this picture of me. But how many times can I ask my DD, who is running late to a meeting, to re-take the picture? So, in the interest of trying to document this hair journey, it will have to do. If you look closely, you can see the beginnings of my "skunk stripe." It's much more visible in person, and outdoors.
Here it is, close up.
It looks much more salt and pepper than it really is. The dark hairs make this more silver than white, but it definitely is very silver-y. Thankfully, it's quite shiny.
Can I bear this for another eight to 10 months? Or will I get tired and chop it off, like this?
Jamie Lee Curtis is beautiful here, but not sure I can go so short. But I'm not ruling it out.
This is what I'm hoping I will eventually have . . .

I've always wanted long hair. But it may be a little optimistic to hope that I could end up with hair like any of these lovelies.
I'd be very happy to end up with this length . . . Isn't this pretty?

Here's what I'm doing while I'm waiting for it to grow . . .
Reading a book, enjoying a lovely respite from all the rain we've had. Look how green everything is.
Actually, I haven't been lying around too much. We're busy helping my son to get ready to move next week. And planning a sleepover (!!!!) here with my book club friends. Yes, we're a wild and crazy bunch.
I'm going to miss my son so much. A party with my friends will help, I'm sure.
Have a beautiful weekend, friends. xo
