Help! Save me from becoming my own Gray-Haired-Dansko-Woman cliche!


Okay. I’m getting a little nervous now. Tomorrow’s the day you all decide if I should dye my hair or let it go gray. I was feeling very brave about the whole thing until I saw this ad for Dansko Clogs last night while flipping through a magazine. In my mind, I think I look […]
