8 Years Later

I did something crazy this weekend.

It’s something I’ve thought about doing ever since my college neighbor knocked on my door for the first time. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for more than 8 years. I’ve thought about it, always worried about what people would say and think – and I’ve talked myself out of it for eight years.

Things to note: the monkey, Mike, Mike’s t-shirt and the studio art..

But this weekend, with the encouragement of a friend and a whole new mindset on life. I did it.

I pierced my nose.

A love affair eight years in the making…

Yup – goody-two-shoes, rule following, hair highlighting, Loft wearing, Coach carrying Betsy pierced her nose.

And I love it.

So much.

I think it’s a perfect way to kick off a new year, new adventures, new life stage and really new everything else.

So yes, I’m 27. I’m an adult. I’ve got a professional job. I follow the rules.

But now I do that all with a little extra bling!

And it makes me smile.

Oh and don’t worry budget savvy friends – not only was it a small $10 investment in a lifetime of happiness… but I spent it in December. Everyone wins!

Is there something you’ve been wanting to do for a while? What’s holding you back? Go get it! I may have been shaking like leaf, but it was so worth it. I can’t believe I didn’t do it years ago!
