as promised in yesterday's post, brunette i am. feels tres chic. headed straight to rite aid, picked up garnier semi-permanent hair color with bamboo extract in #500 - medium natural brown. voila, love it.
i stayed in town this weekend to attend a dear friend's bebe shower. over the years, i've been to some fairly traumatic showers - game playing that felt grade schoolish, silly banter, and an overall awkward vibe. i was beyond impressed with today's extravaganza held at the henley hotel. warm welcomes, ample jasmine tea, laughs, a LUSH bath bomb at each setting, tea sandwiches, mini pastries, bubbly with a slice of lemon rind, and, of course, cupcakes. note my half-consumed cupcake top. yum!
her sister shared insights into how other traditions do baby showers. no wonder, she's a social worker! in addition, we strung a necklace for her to wear during labor that contained beads with our wishes for her.
grateful for such a kind spirit who crossed my path via assisting my class at tranquil space. she's a blessing from above and will be an *amazing* mum.
tonight is open and i'm debating organize, go see an indie flick, hit the gym, or all of the above. to be determined. taking it one breath at a time.
