Occasionally a gray hair or two will pop up on the crown of my head. I normally just tweeze them away and stand firmly in denial that I am aging. After all, I still feel so young! I've only had maybe 20 or so my whole life, but still they're becoming a little more consistent in their arrival. The other day I was looking at Andrew's sideburn hair and noticed he was getting some "frosting", too. At first I was disgusted because I knew his would be looked at as distinguished and mine would be just plain signs of aging. But, then I realized that this meant a dream of mine was starting to come true! We are both graying... that means we are growing old together! I hope we get much older than this but still, we've started on the journey. We'll have been married 13 years this summer and we've been dating each other another 2 1/2 years. I love him so much even though he may be one of the reasons for some of those gray hairs!
But, to add a cherry on top of that "gray-hair-equals-growing-old-together" realization there was a blip I heard on TV about the newest trend in celebrity hair. You guessed it! They're going gray. The trend, they say, is to be natural and not cover your gray. So from that point forward I decided not to tweeze at my crown of glory but to just see what happens. Currently I have about 5 gray hairs that I can occasionally see, that's without digging around for more. I'm sure they do have some friends that are still hiding from me. So far nobody's stood aghast, staring at the top of my head. I guess nobody really cares too much about it and the one person who I would most like to impress says he likes it just fine!
