Locks of Love....here I come!!

Well, I took the big step and chopped off my hair today!! I won’t lie, I was nervous to do it because I haven’t grown my hair this “long” since I was in high school I think – so it was very new to me to have so much hair!! But, it was time for it to go! It was getting old and dingy looking! Amanda (my sister-in-law) and I talked about it for awhile, what cut(s) we will do (she is cutting hers for locks of love too) and decided there was no time like the present! Actually, since I wasn’t really planning on doing it, it will probably surprise most people when they see me!! I guess there isn’t much else to say about it, so here are the pictures! I hope you like – and if you don’t keep it to yourself…cuz it’s too late now!!!!! :-)

PS – Thank you Amanda for doing such an AWESOME job (as always) and for working on a Sunday, which is a BIG no-no for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xoxo

PS. Edited to add…seeing the two ponytails lying on the counter was such an awesome feeling! I was a little sad to see my hair go, but deeply inspired when I KNEW that whoever got that hair would be forever thankful. I highly suggest ANYONE who can do this, does – it will put a smile in your heart.

Looks good. Adam doesnt want me to cut mine off even for such a good cause. Just a few more inches.

i love it! i can't believe you grew it that long! mine is probably five or so inches longer than that, and i'm still afraid it's not enough to donate, so i'm gonna keep growing for a while. :) i love the cut though! beautiful!
