Change of season. Change of city. Change of hair. Coco Chanel once said, “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” Hmm, well there’s definitely a lot of change awaiting just around the corner for me.
The change of season is happening. It’s (finally) getting colder here in Shanghai. The fall is very short here. I love this time of year when it starts cooling down. All trees start to change color. It’s the festive season; Halloween. Thanksgiving. Christmas. New Years. Time for knitted sweaters, crock pot dinners and just overall cosy times. So many things to look forward to!
We only have a few weeks left in Shanghai before it’s time for take-off. It’s been an amazing 7 years here. We’ve made amazing friends and travelled all over Asia. But nothing last forever. It is time for us to embark on our next adventure. We adopted our two fury babies here in Shanghai and they will be leaving with us of course. They have been familiarizing themselves with their new kennels. We’re getting there. Hopefully they’ll be comfortable and ready for their first flight soon.
Every year around fall I cut my hair shorter. I like having longer hair in the summer so I can tie it up when it gets hot and humid. Summer is over and it’s time for a cut. I’m thinking short this time. Like, something new. Something fresh. Change.
Why is it we always feel a little nervous about getting our haircut?! There is something about a major haircut that people consider life changing. It’s amazing the emotional hold our hair has over us compared to any other physical feature…
Either way, I’m feeling pumped for our next chapter and adventure ahead. And the change of hair definitely helped.
