Okay let’s get all the explanations and apologies out of the way right off the bat.
Sara’s on vacation & like all Moms I offered to help her out (okay I thought it would be fun) with her blog while she was gone.
I’m a 58 year old Mother of two, Grandmother of two & Mother-in law of two. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 37, almost 38 years and work for a non profit women’s organization, which of course means I work with 34 women of varying ages and two men.
I’m not sure which of the above made me grey but my hair remains grey because I think I look worse with the outgrowth (Sara’s vocabulary- I would just call it the grey streak) plus I have absolutely no patience when it comes to sitting in a salon. And THEN I found out I don’t even know how to make a salon appointment: Last Christmas I thought a few low lights would be a good idea, so when I called they asked if I wanted a partial or full wrap. I thought that was rather a stupid question because if I’d wanted all my hair done I would have simply requested a color. Little did I know that a partial wrap means they only do the top of your head.
I do not read fashion magazines and I live in West Des Moines, Iowa so there will be no high fashion this week. And Sara hasn’t been here to clean out my closet & force me to go shopping & buy new clothes so nothing you will see is newer than 6 months old - Christmas always helps!
My style (if I actually have one) is on the classic side. Black & white has always been a wardrobe staple for me - I love adding a pop of color. Comfort is essential and I wear nothing but toeless shoes from April 2nd until Halloween.

Sapphireire Ring - Don’t remember but it’s one of several pieces Sara’s called dibs on (Don’t think her brother would wear it anyway.)
