Oh The Places You'll Go


Happy Saturday everyone :)

Although it's a beautiful day outside, I'm stuck inside doing clients :( Well at least I can get some blogging done ;)
For you that don't know me, I am a Hairstylist by trade. Ever since Lia was born I crop the occasional coif to help support my habit......er....I mean.....buy groceries? LOL

I have done quite a bit in my early years of Styling. Photoshoots, TV shows, Award galas etc and I loved every minute of it! It's funny how life and the process of importance changes. One day I"m back stage and the next I'm in the backyard! What a wild ride this thing called LIFE!

I"ll probably post some of my work in the near future and reminisce the good ol' days! hehehe

Anyway, this card is a perfect example of the opportunities that lie ahead of us. It is an inspirational card that my sister asked for. A friend of hers is Graduating Teacher's College. The sentiment is from the wonderful Dr. Seuss and his book Oh the Places You"ll Go. If you haven't read it, you MUST! It's a spot on description of the great things that can be achieved and the bumps that come with it. A great book for any age :)
