realization.

so why am i up at 3: 30 in the middle of the night? obvious reasons... i can't sleep and my thoughts have consumed my mind. it is a process i have become accustomed to as of late. yesterday afternoon i walked into the salon to get my hair colored. wanting to go a little bit darker. shooting for ashlynn's color. still considered blonde i suppose. yesterday i walked out with DARK hair. not just dark for me. DARK HAIR! i have NEVER had dark hair before. (picture will have to follow because well... its late). so i was just sitting on the computer & looked at a picture, (my favorite picture of todd & i) where my hair is extremely blonde. my stomach flipped. what the heck have i done. i wanted to go a little darker, not so dark that i thought i was a completely different person. then i realized... its just hair. wow i really did get a lot of my identity from my hair. still not sure.

I woke up at 3:30 when Dan got up for work. Couldn't get back to sleep so got up at 4:00 when he left and got on the computer. Hair is funny. I have all this gray (which everyone says is nice), and I keep holding off coloring it. I want to see how gray I really am, but everytime I look in the mirror, I just want it to be MY dark color again. Is that vanity? Looking forward to pictures...and to see what I will do next.

I'm sure you still look just as beautiful. Sorry you can't sleep. Saw Ash at church last night--she seemed pretty happy about school :)

I totally understand. I once went in asking for HIGHLIGHTS...came out with hair that was really light copper colored and blonde. It didn't look terribly bad, but I realized how much I identified myself as having dark hair. Isnt it strange?
