Short Wedding Hair

I got a haircut! Okay, generally this isn’t a big deal – I get my hair cut shortish every year when it starts getting warm – it seems that when you’re getting married it is. There’s a bit of an expectation that when you get married you have to have a bridal updo, which requires […]


More on the Name Game

There seems to be a bit of discussion about the name changing thing recently, and it’s made me think about it a little more. Last time I wrote about the name thing I was reluctant to change my name because of my business and simply not liking the way my name sounds with his, but […]


F* Everything
