I was a bit worried when I changed my background to “Autumn” that it might just be a bit early – but, silly me, from reading your comments, just about everyone is ready to put out their fall things! No matter that the temperatures are still hovering above 90….seems all of you are ready for fall! And, so am I. I am really ready for a change on the porch and patio as the summer flowers are just plain spent and the pots desperately need some refreshing. We will have to see how that project works out in the days ahead. I hope when all of you get those cute fall things displayed, you will share your “signs of autumn” with pictures:)
Ok – on with that confession. I have to admit – I really like big hair. You know – hair that has volume…and hair that has oomph – Oh, yea…you remember these girls well from the 80’s! Um, these are totally some pictures I found on the internet and if they look way too much like you…or your best girlfriend…I’m just having some fun. My hair never really did look that “big” but, I do like big hair. Hair that does not lay flat.
I’m not so sure that big hair is really so in style – even by today’s standard. In fact, I have spent the last six or eight months flatironing my hair every morning…so that it looks, well, FLAT. And the crazy thing is – I have a lot of hair (A LOT) and I could really do big (BIG) hair without even much effort……but I don’t.
Why, oh why, do the girls with straight hair pay big bucks for perms to curl while the curly hair girls flatiron with all their might to straighten?? The short girls long to tall…and the tall girls slump over. It is a question as old as time – and I doubt I have any new answers. I will say that while I have been dieting, I have really been trying to learn some “life lessons” along the way – as well as lose some unwanted pounds. Poor body image plagues me and I am seeking God’s help with this as I really do believe it displeases Him.
But, back to my hair. I have a hair appointment tomorrow. I certainly do NOT plan to go retro..but let’s see if I can get some kind of volume back into this hair of mine. Who knows??
And lets plan to do Friday with Friends this week. With everyone ready for fall – lets do a “summer wrap-up” of sorts. Perhaps with pictures:) A look back over this year’s best moments of the summer.
I hope you will join us – and encourage your friends to come for a visit. I will look forward to hearing from all of you!
