This weekend was the annual open house for the local model railroaders association. Attendance is positively mandatory (in my opinion) for boys under 7 and their parents. I love watching the members in their element - some of the trains are owned by the association and some are individually owned. (I also love admiring the array of perfectly manicured moustaches!) Train operators can truck their engines to tracks all over and participate in similar events. Of course, the boys loved it.
But the actual point of this post is to discuss my hair. Do you notice that loose chignon pinned just behind my ear? It's the simplest thing, really. These nifty spin pins by Goody are an inspiration for girls like me. Girls who have long hair that tumbles half way down their back, only to be pulled back into a ruthlessly boring ponytail six days a week. I'm sure many of my friends wouldn't hesitate to tell me it's a shame. Enter the spin pin - they twist into your chosen hair style and create a loose bun that looks more effortless as the day continues. Love it.
Friends and regular readers will know: it's the simple things that make me happy.
