SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, no wait… OPEN IT! I’m hosting my first ever styling event, and it’s at one of my favorite shops at Crocker Park! When one of my “LOCAL LOVE” shops, Banyan Tree, asked if I was interested in doing a styling event, I immediately said YES!
Writing this blog, I sit here with the biggest smile on my face. I feel like I have finally accomplished getting to the finish line. Yet, in many ways I am just getting started. Looking back at the year 2013, when I first started blogging, I had this simple notion – When we look at someone and see their outside layer, we must remember there is a layer underneath, as well.
I’ve done some radical things in my life, but this one is truly special. Dying my hair pink comes once a year, to honor and celebrate my mom’s birthday on September 1st. Yesterday, she would have turned 68 years old, and this is my 4th time going pink. It was my first time going to a wedding with pink hair, but I conquered that challenge, too!
It’s hard to describe the feeling I have right now. This is my first official blog post since 2017 when I said goodbye. On one hand, I’m doing jumping jacks and thrilled beyond measure to be back on this platform. On the other hand, I am scared. If I didn’t say I was a little afraid I wouldn’t be honest. Typically when I make a decision, I stick with it. When I said goodbye, I truly did not think I would blog again. Having the support of my mother, who was also my number one cheerleader and fan, gave me all the courage and strength I needed. Now, that strength has to come from within. Things I never used to worry about, are creeping into my head. It’s up to me now, to find ways to cope with each of them. The fear of simply putting myself back out there is real, but I am choosing to face it. I’m not a runner, period.
