Sunshine in my shadows

Welcome to sunshine in my shadows. This blog is my space to share all the stuff that makes up my every day life. Family, friends, crafts, recipes, books and all the little things that add 'sunshine to my shadows'. We all have a sprinkling of sunshine and an equal sprinkling of shadows in our lives. Hopefully you will find more sunshine than shadows to read about here and on the days when shadows fall, know that the sunshine is peeking just around the corner!

The long and short of it.....

Today was a big day for me and my hair! I have had long hair now for several years and had recently been considering having it cut short. Long hair is lovely and I loved mine BUT I did not love all the time it takes to care for it properly. My hair is also very thick and unless dried with a hairdryer I could wash my hair early in the morning only to go to bed with still wet hair at night. Long hair also makes you very hot in Summer, even when pulled up in a ponytail.
So today was the big day. I had my hair cut, coloured and restyled. It feels strange but much cooler and I felt like a million bucks when I left the salon. I'm still not sure about the length around my face but will live with it for a while and if I really don't like it will ask them to cut it shorter next visit. I haven't had my hair this short since I was in my 20s.
wishing you sunshine in your shadows
