Knowing I have hundreds of pages left to go in a flipping awesome book
and I don't have to wake up early tomorrow 
because the hubby is taking a vacation day.

(PS:  "Outlander" lovers, you would really love this book.)

Remembering the 4th of July
by remembering my time in the US Air Force.

Searching online for new hair color ideas
and not being scared anymore to try new things.

Mental pep talks.

Wherever you are,
whatever you're doing,
give yourself a hand, 
and a hug.

  1. Love the hair colors! I had the same-ish shade of blue highlights at the beginning of the year. Blue seems to fade quickly!! My girls have sported neon pink since December and it's just now looking "blah"...and that was a home dye job!

  2. Beautiful round up of inspiration, Lori! :-)

  3. HAVE A GREAT DAY Be Blessed to be a blessing

  4. Pep talks are good. I had a streak of pure white/blonde in my hair many, many years ago.

    Have a safe and happy holiday Lori!

  5. I vote for purple :) Happy 4th!

  6. The other day I saw a young woman with gray hair flowing down her back- it was very cool. When I asked about it because I'm nosy, she said it was a wig!

    Maybe you could buy wigs in different colors and styles to go with the mood of the day.

    Feeling blue? Hide behind blue bangs. Peppy- a Pink bob!

    Happy 4th!

  7. Wonderful collection of photos! I see a few of my favorite Etsy sellers here. :)
