Someday...

Last week's prompt at *Tyggereye Art Love* is "Someday..." I immediately thought to complete it as Snow White would, "my prince will come." I also was reminded of this card I made in May 2009. I journaled on the back about my own prince charming, dhDH (dear husband Doug Houck.)

When I was 37 years old, my gray hair was beginning to be too prevalent. My hair dresser, Nese, suggested blonde hi-lites. I've been getting hi-lites 4 times per year to hide them ever since (I am now 43). At my last appointment, December 2, 2009, Nese commented, "We've got to do something else to hide this gray hair." I knew this day would come someday. Perhaps my Tyggereye journaling card should have been on this subject :) Last week my dd was Star of the Week in her class. There is a picture of me at age 36, before hi-lites, and with short hair. The teachers all commented that I looked so much younger with my natural color. I responded, "I was! Seven years younger!" This got me thinking about what I should do with my hair. I like to change my hairstyle every two years, but I did not know what I wanted. Yesterday I had Nese cut my hair a little shorter and semi-permanent dye my hair to my natural color, sans gray :) This morning dhDH took a picture of me with my new do and replaced last year's blog pic.

Happy Saturday!

Nice pic! Wow! I have not taken that plunge yet. Still enjoying the non-maintenance thing with my own hair.

Your card is so cute, but I think your story is even cuter! lol Your new hairstyle is really pretty, and I like the 'natural' color...though I'm definitely not going to be going without my highlights in the foreseeable future. I'm heading for the big 5-0 (as in uh-oh! or oh-no!) next week, and my grays are starting multiply like bunnies. Not quite ready to look my age (if I can help it -lol!). Love you dhDH for your hubby and I'm glad you explained. At first I thought you did that on accident. ;)
