The Updo

I'm a hair in a bun kind of girl!  Plus, my daughter thinks it's funny to pull hair, so UP IT GOES!   In result, I've had to learn to get crafty with these long locks of mine.  So with a little tease and a whole lotta bobby pins, and a twist and a twirl, and updo it is. 



I totally did get excited about having my pictures taken the other day.  I'm not typically in front of the camera, and I see all these results of beautiful images of gorgeous girls I've taken, but I never seem to feel confident enough to do the same.  Until yesterday, when YOU all showered me with confidence!  You boosted my morale!  


And I have to say, I'm an advocate of a special kind of beauty.  REAL and RAW beauty!  I have a husband, who although likes it when I clean up and dress up, makes me feel beautiful even when I feel like I'm not.  So I do feel comfortable in my own skin (just not the layers of flubber under it)!  But anyway, I had too much fun.  So, I'm taking back my blog.  Joss will VERY much be the one who runs things around here.  But I exist too, and I'M GOING TO OWN IT!

  10. I am loving the look - as my hair gets longer and longer, I have to get pretty creative too. But my hair is pretty thin...I guess I should try more teasing!
