It was a sign.
On Thursday morning, i was up unusually early because maddie wasn't feeling well and so we watched the Today Show together, which I never do. And what was on that particular day? It was the annual Locks of Love donation show. I've been telling people that I was going to eventually donate my hair to that organization...once it got long enough. Well, I think someone was trying to tell me something that day.
Maddie's been bugging me to get her hair cut (short) and I've been putting it off, for some reason. We decided to go and get her hair cut. And mine too. Here's what I looked like before...
Please excuse the surprised look on my face. You'd think that since I was the one pulling the trigger, I'd have more sense to not be surprised. But you overestimate me... :)
And here's the new me...
12 inches shorter and couldn't be happier. I'm probably a few pounds lighter too because that was a lot of hair. And the fact that it will go and maybe make someone's life a little better is a bonus too...a win/win situation if you ask me.
Hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day weekend!
