The power of 10

Last year, my friend Tamber donated her hair to Locks of Love. I was impressed and wondered if I could ever do that. I decide that I'd give it a try, but wasn't ready to commit. Well, once my hair grew a couple of inches past my shoulders, and I found myself with fast growing pregnancy hair, I decided to press on to 10 inches. Last week it dawned on me that I had enough hair to donate now. Wow! So, today I cut it off. Sweet! I get a baby-friendly hair cut and someone else gets a new hairdo too! Here's the before and after.

Brian told me that I look like Erin J. This was after Joshua pulled me aside in a different room and said, "You have Seth's mom's hair." Pretty funny. I guess I'll call it my Erin cut.

Very cute! I was noticing on Friday that it had gotten really long. Way to hang in there for the whole 10! ;o) I've donated to locks of love once, and plan to do it again.

Yeah You! I've thought about doing this with Suzy's hair. I'm even more inspired now. :)

If you are thinking of donating less than 10 inches, Pantene Beautiful Lengths and Children with Hair Loss are two charities that accept hair only 8 inches long.

You look beautiful! I love the new haircut. And good for you for sticking it out to grow it long enough. 10 inches seems particularly long on us short girls!

super cute! i've also donated once before and would love to do it again, too bad it takes me 4-5 years to grow my hair or i'd do it every year! can't wait to see you and meet kip.

I think I'm going to work toward that too. i usually cut my hair all off after it gets a couple inches past my shoulders but somehow i've let it get alot longer. might as well put this to good use. your hair is so cute by the way.
