Where, Oh Where Is My Hair?

     Well, this has been a long time coming! I do apologize for the long absence. I have been busy with pleasant things, and life in the real world took precedence (as it always should); but things are calming down again (albeit just in time for the craze of preparing for a return to college), and I hope to return to regular blogging again now.
     The reason for all of the busyness has been an onslaught of company. It started with my sister, Kimm, and her husband Johan. Then came Jared, Rachael's fiancé, followed by my Mom's best friend, Mrs. M, who has always been like a second mother to us. Kimm remained till a couple days ago, though Johan had to return home earlier. He was kind enough to lend her to us for ten days after his departure, and we had a lovely visit. I think it is rather Austen-ish, paying nearly month long visits. Anyway, all of this company has been a sort of wedding planning celebration. We have been quite productive, finding both venue and dress within a few weeks.
     In other news, I made a rather drastic change a week or so ago. As I have mentioned in the past, Rachael and I made a pact to not cut our hair for two years. The point was for Rachael's sake. She has always struggled to grow her hair, always getting tired of it and chopping it off; but she has always thought that she would want long hair for her wedding. Although it is hard to believe, two years have now passed; and, characteristically, we both cut all of our hair off the moment we had a chance. Rachael decided that it was far more like herself to have short hair on her wedding day. I like my hair when it is long, but it seems that everybody has long hair, and it's such fun to shock all of one's friends. Also, I had a bit of red still in my hair that I missed when I dyed it black, and it is easier to cut than to dye. Not to mention that short hair is so much fun! I also feel that it is sophisticated while remaining young, which pleases me. I really like this cut, because it has enough length on top that I can curl it and change up the look. I still need to pin curl it, but it might turn into a poodle…

     I have been very busy on projects, and will soon be sharing a new dress with you all. Most of my projects are winter clothes. Last year showed me what a lack I have in that area, so I am putting some effort into building that portion of my wardrobe. It is hard to avoid wearing new clothes though, even when they are flannel and the weather is hot!

Lots of love to all of you!
