i know, i know, a little model-ie, but i couldn't resist.
would you look at that hair!!!
it's been 10 long years folks.
10 long years!
goddesses & gents, you are looking at MY hair.
the hair my mama and daddy gave me!
it's marvelous, isn't it?!
i think so.
i can't get enough.
i figured it was time to enjoy it before any grey changes it again.
and you wouldn't believe the money i'm saving!
especially from the blonde.
yes, before last year i was blonde.
for a really long time.
it was fun.
the stuff literally shines from root to tip now.
like it did in middle school.
it feels amazing.
i feel amazing.
to have myself shining through.
to see the version of me that was meant to be.
and love it.
every piece of it.
even the stretch marks left behind by the pork loin's gestation.
they are my favorite marks.
like little mementos to remind me of when my body made him from scratch.
every last bit.
to love the courage it took to get here.
courage over hair.
it's not for everyone.
it's probably not forever.
but it's for now.
and now is empowering really.
here's to more mementos...
