Last week I celebrated my 35th birthday. It seems almost surreal that I can actually be in my mid thirties already. I don't feel it. And minus a few crows feet around my eyes and some lines in my forehead, I don't think I really look it. The lines and wrinkles are signs of time spent smiling and laughing. With my mischievous little boys around, you can't help but help smile and laugh so they are badges of motherhood well earned.
I decided that in honor of reaching my mid thirties it was time for a new look. Between naturally fine hair and losing quite a bit after Alex weaned, the long hair just wasn't working for me anymore. Five minutes after a blow dry it would just hang there all stringy like.
I absolutely love my new cut! It's the shortest I've ever had it. It felt very strange this morning while washing it, but I will be saving so much money in shampoo and conditioner :)
I also had some purple peek-a-boo streaks put in. At my age and stage of life, I answer to no one but little boys now and Ben thinks it's pretty cool, so why not? I've always wanted to do it. (they actually look a little wine colored here thanks to really bad lighting, but you get the idea)
I have one more thing to do for my wish list for this year, I'm just waiting on the funds to do it. I'll keep you guessing since most likely the parents won't approve anyway ;)
