A change will do you good

I enjoy change. I thrive off it, really. I got very accustomed to packing up everything I owned at least twice a year as a college student. Even after we were married, the longest we ever stayed in one place was one year, to the date. While in school, I always had new semesters to look forward to, which brought new information, new people. As a working adult with no classes, at least the seasons would change and I could revel in that! These days, as a stay at home mom, living in a home we own, in the desert, with a husband with a real job, there is not a whole lot of change going on. My walls are newly painted, and my furniture can't be arranged in any other way. So, itching for something new in my life, I did what any girl would do; I sporadically dyed my hair during nap time. The excitement was everything I intended it to be. I felt new, different, refreshed. For about 2 days. Then I was bored again. So I took more drastic measures.
 


 I feel great, so alive. :) Every time I look in the mirror, or wash my hair, or better yet, actually style it!, I am invigorated again. Laugh all you want, it's how I cope. Let's hope the edge lasts at least until Christmas when I get to be rejuvenated by snow in Utah!

Speaking of good looking hair...
Tee hee hee. Fleece blanket + baby's head=loads of fun and laughter.

I think I am about the most opposite of that. Which is why my hair has been the same for so long. You look great! Can I have some of your courage?!

Cute!!
I'm like you...I like change too. With a family it's hard to make too many changes, but I've been itching really bad too. I'm not sure what I want to do, but your post reminded me that I need to be more daring and to stop waiting for the change to come to me.

I thought something looked different. I am so bad at noticing though. Looks great. Maybe Megan and I can get together with you and experience some change. I like to rearrange furniture but it takes a lot of courage for me to do something drastic with my hair.

love it! Glad that you like it too. Hopefully it will keep you entertained or you might end up bald!

Super cute! And did you cut it yourself?!! If I even attempted to do that it would be a change....for the worse! And Evan is cuter than ever. I wish I could see you guys more!
