Back when I was a full time model I always had my nails done in a stylish and versatile French manicure. My face was covered with foundation to even out my skin tone (freckles) and I always had my hair done. That seems like a different life ago!
It wasn’t that terribly long ago (okay it was a little while ago), I still look pretty close to the same, am the same size, but now I call myself a Grandma, spend time putzing around the farm instead of a runway, cut my nails short to play the guitar, and have a new manicure. Dirt under my nails nine months of the year! The occasional eye makeup put on should my diva side appear but mostly I am au natural. This is my natural hair color. Rather boring after all the years of red, but it is what it is. Freckles, laugh lines, life has been good. I like this new look.

Different times in our lives call for different things! It’s good to feel ok about ourselves whatever age, wherever our journey takes us! Good post.
p.s. you looked pretty fabulous as a model and you look pretty fabulous as a farmgirl/grandma/guitar player so it’s all good!
Thanks Julie! Hope your rain stopped too!
Now you have a garden manicure 🙂
A farmicure! 🙂 Planting begins again tomorrow, bring on the dirty nails! Hope your garden is doing well!
My berry bushes have bounced back beautifully from the rabbit prune. My tomatoes and peppers aren’t looking so good though. I put them out and two days later it began raining again and the temperatures dropped. I’m seeing little signs of them bouncing back, but I’m concerned that I won’t have good production this year. Only time will tell.
It is going to be an interesting year, I think.
Well, I’ll say that I love that manicure. 🙂
Thanks! I hope the rain is done, my nails are getting clean! I need to get out there!
Geez, I was cute! haha! I like being a little older now though! When are you bringing the kids out?
