Why did I think you guys were from Florida? I'm so confused! lol

I'm glad I'm not the only one who looks forward to her hair turning all silver! I can't wait!

My family teases me that I'm an old lady stuck in a young person's body. I don't mind. I truly look forward to getting older.

With my hair, my mom is totally silver and it looks so much better on her than her younger brunette coloring. I have the same skin tone, and it just makes me wish mine would turn faster !
