Lost my Locks

The rumors are true! Last Friday I had my friend Aspen cut 15 inches off my hair! I am loving it. Everyone is telling me I am crazy, and I’m totally fine with that. I believe you should live life on the crazy side! I’ve had a bunch of people asking me why I cut my hair. Here are my top 2 reasons!

#1. So this crazy thought entered my mind around 6 months ago when I was cutting 16 inches  off of my darling cousins hair. She is in 6th grade. I believe she has now donated her hair to Locks of Love 3 times. She is VERY blessed with hair that grows like a weed. I remember explaining to my cousin and aunt, that when I was younger, I had tried donating my hair a few different times. Every time I went to cut it I was a few inches short. Needless to say, I didn’t want to let it grow a few more inches and ended up cutting it off.
I went home that night and handed the measuring tape to Luke. He measure my hair and I had the minimum of 10 inches. I could of cut my hair the next day. I didn’t want to make any rash decisions. I decided if I was still thinking about it 6 months later I would donate it. February was the 6 month mark. Now,  I can happily say, I have donated my hair to Locks of Love!  

2#. The last time my hair was this short I was in 6th grade. Remember the movie “Sweet Home Alabama”, Starring Reese Witherspoon? I had my hair cut just like hers. Once my bob started to grow out, I just let it grow… and grow…. and grow. I’ve had long hair since 8th grade. The past three years I have let it get really long. Spring is in the air, and I was ready for a change.

Here are the answers to some other questions people have asked me.

Won't you miss your long hair?!
    Yeah I probably will, someday. As of right now I don’t  though! I was actually really surprised how I didn’t feel very connected to my hair. After Aspen did the initial cut I was totally fine with it. I told her to keep cutting it shorter and shorter. I think it’s exciting to figure out new ways to style my hair! And well, new styles equal new tutorials! Yay!

What does Luke say?
    For those of you who don’t know Luke is my husband.He has only known me with long hair. Well, I’m glad to say he LOVES it! The day after I cut it he told me that he may like my short hair as much, and maybe a little bit more, then my long hair. That totally took me by surprise, but I’ll happily take that compliment! 

Lastly, I have to give my friend Aspen a BIG thank you for doing a fantastic job with my haircut. My talented sister took my pictures and did an excellent job!  


  1. Wow! From 6th grade to now that you are married? That was a pretty long while to not try bob haircuts. But you’ve done it, anyway. :D How are you growing it out?
