Every Spring, I go through the same ritual.  It's almost like clockwork.  I get that restless, panicky, stressed out feeling.  I get that need for change.

Every Spring, I don't just do Spring cleaning. It's more like Spring purging.

I open  up all the windows, get the lighter, brighter bedding out and onto the beds, and I just purge the house of things we do not need or use.

It actually disturbs me that we have so many things. We have too many things.

Every Spring people who need clothing or other items benefit from my crazy upheaval of our household items.

Every Spring I also do this...

I grow tired of my "look" and need to refresh, revitalize, re-energize. 

This time, I let my hairdresser work her magic on me. Yes, I  placed all my trust in her and told her to do whatever she wanted to do. 

She cut off a few inches of hair, gave me some fun layers, and did this cool ombre hair colour treatment on the tips of my hair! 

When Spring rolls around, do you feel the need for change too?

I hear ya. I always feel like spring is a good time for a change too! Not sure what changes I'll be making but if it ever stops snowing and turns to spring here we shall see!

I love your new do! You look beautiful!!

I completely agree with you with wanting a change. While I was out in Cali I had my sister braid my hair in extensions. These will last me two months and all I have to do is wake up and my hair is done, lol. Did I mention you look beautiful!! :)

Interesting how Spring does this to us every year :) Maybe the prospects of better weather and lots of sunshine are good motivators!

Awww! Wow! Man, Cali, huh? I am longing for warmer weather! I want to see a pic of your hair, my friend!!! Thanks so much for your sweet words! xoxoxo

Oh my gosh! That sounds like so much fun!!! Amazing how extensions can totally change a person's look!! I was shocked to find out how many of my friends use them!!

Christine McN said...

You are sooooo sweet! Are you going to do a Spring make-over? I love your hair!!!

Ahhh...You are quite possibly the sweetest friend I have (on and offline!) xo

You are not alone, my friend!!! :)

Thank you so much! XO
