Beauty on the Weekend

This is life right now.

And because I'm living it, that makes it beautiful.

I'm loving the James study from Beth Moore. In a love/hate kind of way. It's good, but it's challenging. But it's really, really good.

The new mirror for our van came. Perhaps you read about my backing out debacle?

I like pumpkins and turquoise, all mixed up together.

But more than that, I like pie. Not humble pie, but apple pie. One is gluten free and one is gluten full. My new challenge? Get the gluten free one to look as pretty as the gluten full one. But, looks aside-it sure was tasty.

And....I'm nearing the end of my granny circle blanket. It's only been since January. Four more rows to go, then some edging, then some blocking. I can hardly wait to finish it!

Finally, here I am. In all my graying beauty. Yes, I am allowing the gray to come out. I've been covering it for the last 11 years. Eleven. Honestly, I'm tired of it. I'm tired of the maintenance. I'm tired of wondering what's really going under all that dye. And I just want to be me, crown of splendor and all. Yes, I am young for gray. Only 34 years young to be exact. But I'm proud of all those thirty four years and who I have become in them. I'm honestly, quite happy with where I am right now in life. I guess you could I'm comfortable in my skin. And if my newest pins on my hair board are any indication, gray does not mean old.

So in case your thinking that the gray you see isn't that bad, check out these roots. Salt and pepper anyone?

That's all I got folks, it's life right now. I'm good with it. And really grateful to be exactly who I am, where I am.

Have a beautiful weekend!


  1. you are so beautiful!! & i think gray hair is gorgeous! :) i'm sure i won't feel that way when i find MY first gray... but i'll get over it and realize i think it's beautiful again :) lol... love your granny circle blanket! :) i wish i could knit! i wonder what my new husb would think if he came home and i'm knitting. lol :)

  2. Thank you! I've realized that grey is just hair, and if that is what I have then I will work with it. And I figure its easier to go grey now, when there's not as much as there will be later :)

  3. The James study is great, and really like your granny circle blanket. I need to get brave enough to go gray, and I have been coloring for a few more years than 11.

    1. Thank you! And yes, that James study is amazing. I'm being challenged for sure!

      And going gray is a process, but I'm getting used to it :)


I love to hear from you! Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts with me.
