The Long and Short of It

I can't wait to blog about our amazing trip to Japan, I just need to get my act together and organize the pictures.  Until then, I thought I'd share a self-portrait I took while we were there and "introduce" my new hair-cut...aka "the regret-cut".  I'd been thinking about getting my super long hair cut off for a few months - when I finally did in December, it was the longest it had ever been.  Here's a good long-hair pic, though it was quite a bit longer when I finally got it cut:

So one day in December, I called the Aveda Institute (yes, I let someone who isn't even licensed to cut hair on her own yet cut over 14" of hair off...) and got a last-minute appointment for that afternoon.  I spent about 38 seconds googling "long bobs" or "lobs" and decided I wanted this hair:

Pretty and cool, right?  Pretty cool?  Yeah, I think she kept going shorter and shorter to even out the sides and it ended up at my chin.  It's ok, I like it maybe 20% of the time.  I learned my lesson though, 14" of hair is not something to be impulsive about!  Good bye ponytails.

I do LOVE my new sunglasses - Kate Spade's "Shawna"
Oh well, it'll grow!
