Well, hello friend! I'm nearly a week overdue in my goal of posting, so much to share but not enough hours in the day to get it done. Today, Gus is helping me with this one as we have some BIG changes to report! After much debate and waffling, I took the plunge and got a drastic new do'. I was surprised when I received Jim's blessing to go for it. He's already been through many of my hair adventures (and misadventures) so at this point I think he just chuckles and nods and waits it out. What a great guy. :) So, yesterday was the big day. I haven't drastically cut my hair in 10 years so I was nervous. And, those apps and virtual hair makeover websites just don't cut it. I didn't know how I would look with such a drastic change, and that very real concern kicked in of "what if it's a total disaster?" As I sit here the new owner of a "side-swept pixie cut" I have to say, I think I like it. Sometimes, change is good. Waking up at 2am leaves little desire to style my hair, and this shorter coiffe is just the ticket. My hair was dry and unhealthy too, so I love being able to get a bit of a fresh start. I'll be saving money on hair products and time on styling, so that's another big bonus!
So without further adieu..here's the new do'!
The (nervous) "Before"
No going back now!
Gus and I also made a video to show the back of the hair.
So, what did Jim and the kids think? That was the best part. To secure his annual title of Husband of the Year, he had all five kids lined up in the kitchen when I walked in the door. Before even fully viewing the new look, they broke into applause and celebrated the change. What an awesome crew! Whether they like it or not, I don't know..but they supported the change and that means the world to me. Hair can come and go, but I'm so thankful for my family and their love...in good hair days and bad. Here's to hoping I'll be sporting more of the "good" for a little while. :)
