The Cut

Last month I bid on a haircut at a silent auction at a fundraiser for a local nonprofit and today I got that cut and now have a ponytail to donate to "Pantene Beautiful Lengths" for women with cancer. (Unlike Locks of Love, which requires a 10-inch ponytail, Pantene only requires 8).  So here I am:  the new do!

You look great!

I don't know what I'll do with my remaining hair, or how much I'll lose. But if I can speak on behalf of many others, thank you.

Hey Kirstin,
Sorry to read that you are now losing your hair! What a road you've been on. As you know, I've been mostly off blogs for the last few months, so I haven't kept up with your progress, but I am dedicating my ponytail to you!
Blessings, sister.

Short hair is Da Bomb. ;-)

Oh my! How did I miss this all weekend??? It's so nice to see your smiling face, and your hair is faboolos! The color is beautiful, too. (Hmmm, does she or doesn't she…)

Hey Sarah and Lauralew -- so surprising to see people show up here when I so rarely do. Thanks! And thanks for your kind words. Sarah -- I haven't gotten used to you having a name. I still think of you as more cows. ;-)

Diane and Doxy, Thank you, sweeties. Doxy, I had actually short hair (like yours) for almost my entire life, so this doesn't even feel like short hair to me -- though it is much shorter than it has been for the last two years. (It took two years for my short hair to grow out).

PJ -- I don't, but if I did, it would be about the color in this photo. Must be the lighting. My own real color is a mousier brown with grey streaks growing more evident by the day.

I was just going to say your hair looks lustrous and thick and beautiful (yeesh, I sound like an advertisement). The cut gives it some nice bounce. You look great and someone got some hair! Congratulations and blessings. Enjoy the new look and remember to flirt. ;-)
