i lost 12 inches over night.

Do you ever feel dragged down and you don't know why? I've felt that way about my hair recently. It was crazy long.. like longer than I've ever had it long. It was always in the way, never looked the way I wanted it to, and was a constant pain in the ass.
Yesterday I decided I had enough, marched into my favorite salon, and took care of the beast that was weighing me down. 

This was then.....

This was when I was practically jumping for joy...

And this is now... 12 inches lighter and couldn't be happier about it!

It's a pretty awesome day when you get to help someone in need by helping yourself. Hope whoever the little girl is that gets my thick blonde hair made into a wig has a smile on her face when she recieves it and immediately runs like hell to feel the wind blow through it.

Happy Thursday Friends.
xoxo

It looks really, really great! It's exciting to donate hair, isn't it? I actually keep mine about that length that you have it now, but I purchased clip-in hair extensions for when I miss my long hair and want to do something dramatic.

I think you looked fabulous before as well... but I get the feeling. I haven't had a haircut since months before my wedding... and my hair is out of control.

But I also think your new do is adorable :)
