my cousin and i would always covet girls with beautiful, shampoo commercial, swishy hair. come to think of it, i think most of her girls were born with that amazing sleeping beauty-esque hair.
actually aurora’s hair is what i always aspired too… despite the fact my hair grows painfully slow and then there is the issue of the baby hairs. they definitely have a mind of their own.
christian likes to check in on them and by checking in, i mean draw attention to their rascally behavior.
there was a time when the baby hairs cooperated, back when i lived in a small virginia town with two super walmarts.
the end of november marks five years since i left that life. and the end of december brings five years since i started my new one.
i’ve been feeling pressure to create and finalize our traditions. i feel like i have been waiting until it isn’t just the two of us to implement those. last night i studied up on christmas traditions from all of our ancestral countries. as much as i wanted to honor my danish roots, i just don’t dig rice pudding.
so i guess our rag-tag team consisting of our levenworth nutcracker, mozambican holy family and lego advent calendar will have to do for now.
