new season, new do.

i did something yesterday that i haven't done in a very very long time. i went to the hair salon. i had very, very long hair. and when my hair got caught in my coat sleeve, i knew that it had to go. haha . and i bet most of you didn't even realize how long my hair was because i always wore it back!
so one of my besties shannon sent me to lab, to see ashley. and let me tell you, she is fabulous! i can see why she's been raved about so much!
i knew i was in good hands.
so to give you an idea of what i brought to work with....

see? i told you! that's about 28" of hair.
so i was pretty happy to be going to the salon. let's just say that. :) and we didn't lose any time...

yikes. that's a lot of hair. haha. but i really like what i've got now... and i knew i would.

yeah, this will be much easier to manage. that is for sure. :) and i can actually wear my hair down without worrying about the worst tangles! as for all of that hair we cut off? i'm going to try to donate it. i know it could be used for a very good cause.  so i've got it all ready to be sent off :) and i have absolutely no regrets.

i have to send a huge thank you to ashley. and i wish you the best time ever on your super awesome trip. so so not jealous here... ;) just remember to come back, because there's a posse of us knitters who need you. and thanks to my girls who encouraged this big step...xo

have you done a drastic cut before? the bonus with this style is that i can still wear it back... if i wanted to... so if you'll excuse me, time to rock spring with my new do. and drink more coffee... xo
