Eyes of blue (that were once hazel)

What would cause change of eye color? Growing up I had hazel eyes. Sometime in my twenties my eyes became blue (I'm now in my 40s).

Photos taken of me when young show me with hazel eyes, and a college friend of mine confirmed that my eyes were hazel when we went to college.
My first awareness that my eyes had changed to blue was from a woman I was dating in my late twenties who commented on my blue eyes.
Web searching has only revealed eyes turning brown as a side effect of some medications. I couldn't find anything about eyes turning blue. (And no odd medication that I took in my twenties that I recall).
And no, I do not wear colored contact lenses.
My son has blue eyes (as does my wife), if you want to get into the genetics of it. I don't remember my parents' eye colors.
Anyone else ever experience eyes turning blue?
