I'm making a donation

Pete said I could get my haircut.







So I did.







I feel like a new woman!!! It is light and soft and I think it will be easy to take care of. No more ponytail wrapping itself around my neck when I lean forward to do all the things I do- change diapers, nurse a baby, mop a floor. No more pain from my hair getting caught in my purse strap or the car seat handle!







I think it's about an inch or so shorter than I told my stylist to cut it. I like it just fine- hopefully that extra inch won't upset my sweet husband.





Here's me before:







And here I am after:





Locks of Love will be receiving 4 pony tails from me!!

Looks really good! Pete will adjust...after all your hair was pretty short (shorter than now) when he 1st fell in love with you...

The new cut suits your very well. Looks great. I can't believe how long your hair was! I wonder if I'll EVER get up the guts to finallly chop my locks. :-) I love reading your blog, by the way. It's beautiful and inspiring.
