Well it all started when I read my friend Vee's post about being a copycat. Vee is the best writer and I always get a chuckle when she writes one of her funny posts. Vee's blog is called A Haven For Vee.
But seriously the photo of me that has been on my blog all these years is ancient. From 2004. She gave me the confidence to share what I look like now...two months shy of 63 years old. Yikes!
So, I set out to show me today, gray hair and all. I let my hair go natural, and my girls are always asking me to die it. But I have spent so much money dying my hair through the decades, I could own a beauty salon by now.
Besides, I like my gray hair, and the rest of it is turning a bit silver, I love that.
I told my hairdresser that I was going to let it grow out and back to my natural color. She said, in her young voice "Oh that will age you", I answered I am old, how much older can it make me look?
Well, I didn't want a photo like the ones you see on most of the blogs authored by gorgeous young girls. I wanted something that shows who I am without scaring people away.
So, my daughter Sarah had this idea. She really made me laugh, so my smile isn't one of those staged fake ones. It's how I look when I am laughing. I added it to my sidebar. Thank's Vee!!!
When you put on a happy face, the wrinkles disappear...it's better than Botox.
