The main reason being the condition of our roof and chimney. We budgeted for this but were going to wait for warmer weather like normal people but the insurance people had a different time line in mind!
Here is was before.
The chimney was rough, no doubt. The roof was not horrendous though but we were planning on replacing it anyway.
Luckily we are having a strange winter weather wise and we could get this work done. The other bonus was that the contractors don't have a bunch of jobs lined up either so they came out right away. I think it was only a week since being notified by the insurance company and then having the contractors starting their work. Amazing!
The chimney guy and the roof guy knew each other well and were able to coordinate efforts which was a beautiful thing!
I'm very proud of this since I dealt with the contractors for the most part getting referrals, contacting them, getting estimates, etc. We are extremely pleased with our choices.
How so? Going natural meaning all gray! I have been battling gray hair since my teens and it has become way too stubborn in recent years. I'm done coloring! So to get there quicker I have started with a bob.

Where did this inspiration come from? A fabulous documentary on Iris Apfel that is on Netflix. I highly recommend looking it up if you have Netflix and feel in need of a little inspiration in your life. What an icon!
