My amazing Jill dear, You are extremely organised I must say to have kept all these memories.
My dear all hair styles are beautiful. A true reflection of your smile and most of all the beautiful heart you have and will always have. Ha those hair styles must have been carefully chosen to march the various occasion I trust you on that!!!!! That is why I say they are all beautiful. I love the black hat and the ear rings too.
Thanks for sharing Jill. We look forward to the other parts of your photographic hair journey.
Lots of love and hugs
Regina

Hello Love,

How are you doing?

Ha. Well, I had quite a few already on my computer and then I wanted to have a creative, Sunday project and I've been thinking about doing this for a little over a week now. I had to grab some older ones and scan them, but it was pretty fun, and nostalgic, too:-)

Aw, thank you:-) You're so sweet!

You're welcome! Thanks for stopping by and providing your ever-lovely feedback!

Ha. So do I:-) I wonder what color next. Although the red isn't lasting long...hmmm.

Hi lovey dovey Jill,
What we think... we think that your eyes are beautiful, your radiant smile is beautiful and you are so full of life, vibrant, full of exuberance. I want to see more and more women like you. Its wonderful how much this attitude can accomplish!!
Life is like this.. it plays with our happiness, tossing and turning our little joys yet our Jill is determined, she will never leave smiling, she will remain pleased and interested. Every time I see you smiling in your photos, I take one (smile) back to my family.. (laughing)
God bless you ❤

Hello dear Jill :)
It is so lovely to get a sneak peak into your childhood, your teens and adulthood and watch life unfold through your hair journey.
You remain your sparkly self on every shot. I can't decide my favourite photo or hair, although little Jill is too cute :) :) :) :) :)
Thank you for sharing, and blessing us with so many smiles, all at once.
Keep smiling, lovely ;)

Hello Nini,

How are you and your family doing, dear?

I'm glad you liked it:-)

Thank you!

You're welcome.

You, too:-)

Hope to see you at the Encourager Party on Friday!

Hello, JLo,

What a lovely collage of Jills! Who would have thought that a photo collection of you and your hairstyles is art in itself. I really wonder why you didn't become an actress. Your lovely face would be great to watch in tv shows or movies.

What's the color of your current hair? It looks dark pink or light red. Suits you well, as always!

How does one color her hair during the pandemic?

Thank you for the positive energy you bring by posting this. Too bad this call for stories is about to end. I would've said, "More please".

Hello Kaye:-)

Thank you! Ha. I thought so, too:-)

Aw, thanks. I'm not sure if I can act, though. Although come to think of it my whole life I've been pretending to be happy when I wasn't so, yeah, maybe not so difficult after all...ha.

It was/is supposed to be bright, fire engine red but because I didn't really bleach my hair, and because it's semi-permanent color, it only lasted for about two washes. Guess I'm going back to the teal next time:-) Thank you!

I had to wait a long time during the quarantine, but then I was able to get back on track:-) Luckily the teal lasted quite a long time.

You're welcome. Thanks for checking it out and for your lovely feedback, and support, as always:-)

Ha. And, you would've gotten more, too.

You're welcome, dear.

Haha. Yeah, so if Keanu Reeves is looking for an actress, you know what to do.

I love the fire engine red color. Teal is your favorite now.

You're welcome as always! Haha.

Oh, Dear Keanu. I forgot about my dear friend, Keanu:-) I didn't know you knew him...ha.

Hmm. Perhaps I should touch base with him soon.

Thank you!

Well, sis Jill, you've been a beauty right from childhood, and what a lovely smile. It blows my mind that you've somehow kept all these photos, I'm not that organized, hahaha. Your collage is really beautiful, I can't quite pick a favourite photo because I think all the styles suit you nicely.
I'm scared to do anything with my hair. I only recently cut it after wanting to do so for years and now I don't know what to do next, so it's nice to see someone who loves to experiment. Thanks for sharing.
Love, Kike :)

Hello Kike,

Aw, thank you:-) I had a lot of them on my FB already and then had to scan some that I've been wanting to have digital for awhile. It was quite fun, really.

Very nice:-)

Why are you scared? It's too much fun:-) What would you like to do? I don't get too scared with my hair anymore. I figure what's the worst that can happen.

You're welcome!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your lovely feedback!
