Well, here it is, the new hair color. I feel kinda bad ass with my new darker do. I'm debating about going back and getting a few highlights to break things up. Of course, it's going to get lighter as I wash it, so I think I'll wait a few washes before I decide.
While I was in the salon last week, my hair stylist informed me that he had checked out my blog and really loved all the photos. He offered to style my hair for some future photo shoots and even suggested we go to his house to take some photos in his picturesque yard! Needless to say, I didn't hesitate to take him up on his offer. Free hair do's by a master stylist: yes, please! To give me a little taste, he decided to braid my hair in a herringbone pattern. He told me this hairstyle looked better the messier it got, so he wanted me to go home and sleep on it. So, that's what I did, and this is how it looked the next day. I really loved it! I can't wait to see what he does next time!
The location for this photo shoot was the purple mule grass that served as my backdrop a few months ago. My, how it has changed! It has faded from a fiery purple to a golden beige. It's not as dramatic but still beautiful. In some ways, I prefer all the muted tones of winter. I especially love the bare trees, their branches exposed and reaching up towards the sky.
Speaking of changes, I was shocked to read that Heidi Klum and Seal are getting a divorce. They seemed to be so in love. The reason given in the statement for the separation was that they had grown apart, but they still loved and respected one another. This really hit close to home. As I know all too well, a divorce is a really sad event, but it's good when the couple can part amiably, especially when children are involved. I know I'm in the minority here, but I get it. The heart changes. People can and do grow apart. I don't think they should be forced to stay together because of children or society's expectations. Everyone deserves to be happy. Divorce is sad, but it's more sad to stay in an unhappy marriage. The fact is everything changes, and change can be a sad thing when we long for the familiar, the way things used to be. However, it can also be a positive thing when it moves us forward into a better life.
