I turned a year older on Friday.
This is not me a year older. ;)
This is me age 8.
Just after cutting off my long, very long, down to my butt, long hair.
I love how such pictures can conjure up such memories of a moment in your past.
My mom was pregnant with my little sister and mentioned that she would not be able to wash my hair as often and that I would be washing it myself, so the option was mentioned, of cutting it.
I don't know how we went from never cutting my hair to chopping it all off? But we did, and this was the result.
The hairstylist cut off the ponytail I was wearing. My mom still has it, saved in a plastic bag. She always kept it in the same draw in her bureau and I often would open the draw just too see my
I wore those little, thin plastic headbands in my hair.
Everyone who sees this picture says I look the same, exactly the same.
I am okay with that especially as I get older.
I like that I look young, feel young, act young (most of the time)
The last year was a big year for me, for us as a family.
I had a lot of those 'lightbulb" moments where all of a sudden something in life finally makes sense.
I like those moments.
I wish they came more often.
Some were big and profound,
some were just small little ones.
I hope this year goes by a bit slower.
Last year went to fast
"Bloom where you are planted", or in my case "transplanted".
This is very hard for me, but I am working on it.
31 is going to be GREAT~
