once upon a time, i was born…with not much hair…
two years later, i still didn’t have a full head of hair.
not long after that, peach fuzz started to grow and it became obvious that i was a redhead.
carrot top, pumpkin head, ginger, redheaded step child, fire crotch…you name if, i’ve been called it.
honestly, i hated having red hair. no one else had red hair AND…the boys only seemed to like the blondes and the brunettes.
in high school, when the girls started putting highlights i their hair, i wanted to go blonde so badly.
but alas, my mom saw my red hair as a unique feature…a novelty if you will…and absolutely forbade me to start messing with the color of my hair.
needless to say, as soon as i escaped from hs and headed to college, i chopped my hair off and went blonde…
and up until very recently, i was every color under the sun EXCEPT…red.
however, as i’ve grown older and wiser, i’ve learned just how special it is to be a redhead and i’m proud to embrace the real me.
these days, shades of red are all the rage! i know many girls have red hair, but i rarely meet a fellow natural red head.
until last week, that is!
i’m super excited to announce that i had the pleasure of meeting my favorite redhead blogger…
