I am so excited to be at Haven! I wanted to share a few things about myself with you before this weekend gets rolling.
I am a natural blonde… Okay, natural on me when I was like 3 years old, but natural at one time.
See, it’s true!
My hair color is actually a dirty dishwater blonde which sounds like the most attractive color in the universe. You never see that color on a dye box, do ya?
I am also growing out my hair. I’ve decided now that I am 41, it’s the make or break moment and I am going for boob-length. A girl’s gotta have goals, right?
One of the biggest remarks I get about how I look is people always say “You look taller on your blog, I thought you were taller in person.”
While I’m not circus freak-show short, I do come from a long line of people who can never reach the top shelf at the grocery store. I am 5’2. I’ve learned to swallow my pride and ask for “tall” help.
I will be wearing lots of heeled shoes this weekend so most people don’t have to stare at the top of my head, and I don’t have to crane my neck all weekend.
This month is My Blogiversary! 6 years! Holy cow. Can you believe it? from the first post on in 2007, I never thought I would still be here and I never thought much would come out of it. From the first time I finally was published in the local paper to over 20 publications, a booming creative business and speaking at Haven!!!! I would have never dreamed I could have ended up here!
But I am ready for the next step now what ever that may be. I am looking forward to this weekend and enjoying a break before we roll into the school year.
Summer is my favorite season. Even though I love Spring and Fall in Chicago, I adore Summer! Bring.On.The. Heat. I grew up in a home where the air conditioning didn’t go on until it was over 90, so I can happily suffer in sweltering weather and now prefer it. I get cold really easy. I’m the girl wearing the sweater when it’s 75. I am ready for HOTlanta! Long, dyed hair and all!!!!
P.S. if you are looking for a funny story, I found this one back in my blog archives. It made me laugh.
