Siiiigh.  It is time.  I need to make an announcement.

I mean, it has been almost 2 months and really, I just need to face the facts & let you all know.  Sooner or later you are all going to notice anyway.  Somethings you can only hide for so long.  So instead of getting those off comments, weird, wondering looks or subtle hints...I can just spare you and tell you now.

It is official....I am growing my hair out.  Shocking!  I know!!

Now, if you have only known me for the last year or so, you have only known me to have short hair.  So let me show you this long hair that I speak of. 

Here I was the day I cut it short.  That is me on the left, in case you can't tell the difference between mother & daughter.
 Here is another snapshot of it long:

Although I have completely enjoyed a short hair cut...I really, really miss my long hair.  So it's time to grow it out.  Lucky for me, my hair grows fairly fast.  I'd guess about an inch a month.  While I still have a ways to go to get it "that" long again, it should go quickly.  I haven't had a haircut in almost 2 months and think I'm already rather shaggy looking.

So for fun and lasting memories I took a snapshot or two (or several, cause I was really having fun) of myself to commemorate this moving forward & letting go of the short do.  I may someday return to this look, but for now, while I can, I will love & embrace my long hair.

Note: when trying to purposely take a picture of one self, it never fails that none of them turn out like you want them to.  Here are two, to show off my hair as of today:

Warning:  I will likely on more than one occasion go crazy during this process of trying to grow it out.  It will be a complete love-hate relationship.  So if you see me looking like this, then you know why.
 I may at some point begin to resemble Cousin It.  I will need to go in from time to time to get a trim.  If you look quickly at this picture it looks as if my head is super transposed and turned around backward, like you are looking at the back of my head, yet my shoulders are facing forward.  I know, I'm so talented, you are jealous.

Extra note: sitting & taking pictures of self on a dreary afternoon is really fun.  Nobody is home to see me on the floor laughing at myself.  Sometimes, that is what we need....a little dose of laughing at one self.  Go ahead, try it.  Take some funny pictures of yourself & post them.  Have a  great day!!
