Way overdue for a haircut, I thought, "Hey, what the heck?" and cut off 10 inches to donate to Locks of Love. I've been wanting to do that for a long time, but didn't have 10 inches to spare... so I guess it paid off to be behind on hair maintenance for awhile.... :)
PS: Emir didn't know about it until I got home..... (Heck, I didn't know about it until I got to the salon!) He loves it though - I think our hair is about the same length now.... ha ha!
