The turning point came Sunday when I glanced in the mirror wearing a pair of heavy framed reading glasses and saw late period Andy Warhol staring back. Not the look I was trying for. I immediately made an appointment and am happy!

I finally realized after months of growing it out painfully slowly, I wasn't going to like it when it was longer, and there was no reason not to go back to a style I really like. My hair is super fine, very straight in my dry climate and too thin to look good at longer lengths. This will be so easy, and I think it is so much better for me than the grow out.

Last night DH and I went to the quarterly Parent Social while the kids were having their formal dinner. I have been trying to add a third piece so dug out this necklace, made from a 25 year old chain and a glass bead from the craft room. I trotted out the cord topper I scored on sale at last spring after YFL made me realize I only had gear jackets. It is so cozy and comes in petite, but I found the XS regular to give me the length to cuff.

Sorry about the poor photo quality. It is getting dark earlier now, but I wanted to share my new 'do and thank YFLers for reminding that I didn't have to grow my hair out. Special thanks to Emily K, Jenni NZ and Angie for recent posts that gave me the extra shove.

Next on the agenda - new glasses!
