For a good cause...

After Sage was born, I decided that I was going to grow my hair long. I'd had short hair for about four years and wanted a change.

When my friend, Val's, son was diagnosed with leukemia in September 2006, I decided to grow it long enough to be able to donate it for Angel Hair.

This spring, I figured that it was long enough...



So, this morning, I went to the hairdresser and went from this:



to this:



She cut over 10 inches off! It feels so different, but I'm getting used to it.



What do you think?

It's Absolutely Fabulous! You look younger and fresher. Isn't it amazing what a cut can do, not to mention how you must feel donating 10 inches to Locks of Love (or something similar). Everyone wins!
