Muddy hymnal

Well hello again! Sorry for the crappy webcam photo, but it's all I have at the moment to show off my new haircut. After the haircut, I was slightly devastated at first - I told the stylist to cut an inch off the ends, and she promptly cut off a year's growth. Not exactly what I asked for! But now, I really like it. And even if I didn't, the lovely thing is that hair grows back. (I was glad to hear from your comments, though, that I'm not the only one who constantly engages in a fierce debate about whether or not to have bangs. Makes me feel a little less silly.)

Now, as for why I have no good photos...I'm afraid these last couple weeks have not been very conducive to blogging. About two and a half weeks ago, one of Chris's friends passed away suddenly. It was a very strange and sad week, full of grief, and the joy that I wrote about (just a couple posts ago) remained most elusive. And since the end of that week, I've been battling a cold that, while not the worst I've ever had, is nonetheless awfully persistent...

But happier times are ahead. I know they are. I've been wanting for ages to set up my Etsy shop - I mean, really set it up, and have my own little space somewhere that I can devote to taking photos and such. Well, that dream is a little bit closer to reality. My mom is giving me some space in our basement that I can use as a set! We still have to get some things cleared out of the way, and decorating it will take time, but I'm so excited to get started anew. In the meantime, I've been listing some new dresses:

Let's hear it for new beginnings!
