    Oh, I dig the frost. I remember when the grey first started coming in and my daughter asked me if I was old… I told her, “As old as I feel, which is pretty young.” But she was a bit self-conscious about it, because all the other moms were dying their hair and she wanted me to as well. Lovely handful of words! Amy

    And you’re not in the autumn years yet, right? At least not in spirit! 😉
