When you’ve witnessed someone grow and blossom for over 1/2 their time on this earth…you capture it.
Well, first you cut and color it….then you capture!
As I continue to navigate my way through the wonders of minimalism, I’m discovering that I just love the idea of making room, in my life, for the things that matter most. Nothing quite like the approaching Spring season to motivate us to ‘lean in’ to the task of ridding our homes and our lives of the noise of clutter to free us up to do things that matter with the people in our lives that matter! Joshua Becker has some great ideas to get you going! It’s not enough to just acquire less…it’s actually about realizing that you want less. Big difference.

Some folks despise change…others live for it. I am one that falls somewhere in the middle (largely because I understand that it’s necessary). Change, if it’s my idea, is awesome! When it’s not, it makes me uncomfortable. But what I have come to know is that change comes in many forms and as I age I’ve allowed it to come into my life and transform me. Be it a job, a death, a love interest, an injury, a road closure I didn’t expect…even the recent spike in my insurance premium! These and countless other “changes” are pushing me in directions I might not’ve otherwise considered. These alterations of my existence force me to stop and take inventory…a self audit, if you will. When I look back at my “WTF” moments I seem to have emerged victorious and dare I say it, happier. I guess what I’m saying is let’s be done with fearing change and make friends with it.
Change is, after all, why we are who we are! Perhaps if you’re not where you thought you’d be in your life, you need to invite some change into your life. In the end, if you don’t like the change…you can change it again! Embrace it and let it bring you the life you are to be living!
Happy New You!
Getting the call that a baby is ready for their “close-up” is pretty exciting…especially when they’re super new! When I arrived I was graciously greeted by Griffin, a handsome, visitor loving, golden lab through the front door window. While he didn’t let me in I was assured by his mighty tail wagging (okay, his entire body was wagging) that I was a welcomed guest and he would soon receive me with a bit of slobber and a handshake. Needless to say, Griffin was/is pretty proud of his new human sibling. This is Deacan
I love when I get to introduce clients to fun, fresh, new ways of enhancing their hair. I love to educate them to the many ways that I can transform their look and personal style. Mind you, that I never force anyone to do anything I merely suggest ideas (plant seeds, if you will) that they can mull over in the moment or in the weeks that follow. Either way, my clients get to decide. THAT said, I always recommend that you consult before you jump…everyone wins! When someone is ‘on board’ we discuss the detail of the process and the cost…not only for the initial appointment but the maintenance going forward as well…again..everyone wins! Sometimes we elect to do part of the process (baby steps) and in future appointments leap to the finish! Other times I get to perform a service that actually saves them time and money in the future. Here’s where the Balayage comes in. Balayage, a French word meaning “to sweep”, has long been touted as an alternate way of highlighting hair (of ANY color, texture or length for that matter!). It’s a ‘free-hand’, painting, technique that seems to be taking on steam here in the mid section of the country and I couldn’t be happier! This is Mary. An exciting change for a High School Sophomore who’d never colored her hair before. LOW maintenance hair color!
