and my homework in my office.
sounds like a great time to write a post.
today, it has officially been one year since i gave up on hair dye.
when i started this journey, i shared it on my blog to hold myself accountable.
to my readers.
who basically include my parents, sister, and bernie.
maybe i should have just texted them. . .
i'm pretty stinking proud of myself.
i've stuck with it and embraced it as a temporary. . . albeit several year. . . process.
along the way, i have searched the internet for other people's stories.
suffice it to say, there aren't a TON of blogs about women choosing to go gray in their 30's.
but there are some out there.
and i really appreciated hearing. . . and more importantly, seeing. . . how the process has gone for them.
so. . . here's mine in return.
mainly in pictures because there isn't much to say.
"look. there's gray hair."
"and now there's more. . . "
there's one awkward part.
(at least for me.)
these are not things i regularly take.
but, it is awfully hard to look at the top of your head without them.
and i decided to spare bernie from this new life task.
selfies it is.
here we go!
JUST GETTING STARTED. . . April 6, 2014
a few of these seem to have a blue filter.
i don't know.
apparently i was in the mood for blueish gray hair on occasion.
i think i made anth help me take this one.
such lucky kids i have. . .
based on the artwork in background, this one appears to have been taken in my office.
you can really see the lovely contrast between the gray and my highlights.
i had highlights done when i started growing out the gray, because i thought things would blend better.
word to the wise?
just grow it out.
i am now contending with natural, highlighted, and gray hair.
february was exciting.
i finally reached the point where the gray goes all the way back to my ponytail.
so what i'm saying is. . . i now look like i got one of those hairpieces at a stand in the mall.
in the wrong color.
also...it shows that, after a year, i'm not quite there yet. . .
APRIL 2015: A PHOTO WITH OTHER HUMANS!
if you look closely, you can see a christmas light in the background.
they are strung around the boys' bunk bed.
i still have a long road ahead of me. . .
"a long road."
that sounds a bit dramatic for "sitting around and waiting for hair to grow."
but. . . i'm still not ready to cut it off.
i've just gotten used to looking a little bit messy.
but. . . between work, school, the boys' sports, and our new obsession with Sherlock, life is a little bit messy right now.
here's to looking how i feel!
