Oh, the weight of the revelation. I got my hair cut today, many, many inches came off. Watching the transformation I began calling out silent taunts in my head to the falling locks, “See ya suck-ah! And stay gone, punk. We’re going to be just fine.” I was surprisingly relieved to see it gone. To see my face.
Then at home we had another transformation, painting our living room a color called Stony Fields. The previous color was granny smith apple green. I thought I loved it, just like I thought I loved my hair. So wrong. I hated the green, hated it. And Stony Fields? I want to sing I am so happy, besotted with our milk chocolaty walls. Purrrr.
Was this really worthy of a post? Perhaps not, but it gives me the opportunity to post this picture in which I had just proudly (and with great self-mocking) declared,
I’m a lucky woman because Sean snorted and chortled right along with me. But seriously, have you considered the things you might have in your life right now that you think you need? Think you love, but in reality are things that are literally weighing you down or denying you joy?
Go cut it, paint, snip it, toss it, whatever. It feels too good not to, I promise!
pretty hair and pretty pregger belly! Is it totally wrong that I think pregger belly is adorable?
you're so cute. 🙂
I love, love, love your haircut! Isn't it the best feeling? I had about 3 inches cut off with some side bangs after Sam was born. I don't know why I was holding on to my longer hair:)
Look at your tiny belly! And what a nice new haircut!
I am past due for a haircut – my hair no longer has any discerable style and I feel a little dip of despair everytime I look in the mirror. Yes, poor me.
Great choices on the hair AND the wall color! Both look perfect!
Snort. "This is how I roll". Snirk.
Oh, and with that figure, and that hair, and being pregnant and still looking like a million bucks? I think I hate you. (kidding!!!!)
Really cute haircut sweetie.
Love the hair!
The green sounds pretty, but I'm a big fan of the new color.
That length is great for you – and I am in agreement with the rest – the belly is adorable!
Oh, Hi little baby!!
I love the hair! I don't have the guts to chop mine off although there re days.
"God, you're cute!" she said in a platonic, belly-admiring way.
I had no idea, the depths to which I could love you.
you are so cute! and i seriously think i could and should live without a computer. but it'll never happen. sigh.
Pretty new Do! I love it and your new wall color. I too have a green apple room. It does not fit well. I need a soft change.
congrats on the baby
I have been away for a bit- I was not aware- yahoo for you all
I do love yr blog and must subscribe asap 🙂
You look fantastic!
Change is good. Although not as good as paper money.
(See how Bossy did that?)
I love the new haircut! It is so flattering on you! And the wallcolor makes me want to snuggle up with some hot chocolate and a good book!
Love it! And good advice..must ponder that a wee bit….
You are SO lovely! Your hair is gorgeous, wish I had the courage. Your belly is adorable!
You are SO lovely! Hair is gorgeous, as is your belly!!
You are just too cute for me to like you!
I think It's a hormone thing. I cut off my hair every time I get knocked up. I don't however paint the living room.
I have really enjoyed my time here tonight! I have been on your blog half the night so thought it only right to say hello and what a good read. 🙂
Ohhhhh! Look at that perfect little belly.
And your hair is positively lovely too! This reminds me that I seriously need a haircut of my own.
