Being an Individual

So, the more Don and I got to know each other as we were dating and newly married, we realized that we had something in common... we like(d) to be an individual... stand out in a crowd.  (I just realized how funny that is... that we like to be an individual just like each other.  ha)

While both kids inherited that trait from us in some ways (let's remember the numerous mohawks that Bub has sported... the slicked back mullet that he wore out for his birthday), that trait has really been passed on to Sis.

She doesn't care about name brands on clothes, she doesn't care about name brands on shoes... she just likes what SHE likes.

So, for the last year or so, I've been letting her put semi-permanent color in her hair.  We've tried this look several times, but this latest 'do has "taken" the most.  The whole underneath of her hair has been dyed black.  And as long as it is, and because of her layers, it shows up the bottom third of her hair or so.

And she loved it so much that she actually did a little photo posing for me.  Which, these days, is a big deal!  Here's Sis...

I love her smile here, but you can't see as much of her "underneath" hair.  Note her "Geek" necklace, and her Pokemon hoodie.

You can see the color better in this one.

My gorgeous, individual girl

One last look...
