I got tired of my long hair always in my face or pulled back. I will probably grow it back just because I am not too fond of beauty shops. But for now I love it. Easy to wash and go. Hey, you can see my earrings!
We retired to our piece of heaven in SW Minnesota in 2006 and have been happily clearing an over abundance of buckthorn and mulberry trees growing in between the American elms, maples and box elders. And I am now spending time on my favorite obsession, fiber: specifically wool. Our life is hard work at an easy pace. And I never want to go back to a city.
