Harvest Time

0665

It was recently ‘Harvest Time’ at our house—time to finally harvest the hair I’ve been farming over the last year so that I could donate it to Locks of Love. This is the fourth time I’ve been able to donate my hair and it’s always a fun and rewarding endeavor. As I’m growing my hair out it inevitably gets to a point where it looks really bad, drives me crazy, and I am so tempted to cut it. Then I try and remember that if I just hold on a little longer I will have enough length to donate. My hair grows fast, it’s the least I can do, right? So when you see my long, heavy hair looking less than it’s best, likely in a ponytail day after day, just know it’s for a good cause. :) That’s my story anyway, and I’m sticking to it!

Our dear Freja has been begging to donate her hair for a year or so now and I finally relented. I felt quite hesitant to say good-bye to her long blonde locks but Eric properly chastened me for not supporting her in her charitable desires and so I agreed. Her hair does NOT grow fast, all the more special that she wanted to give it away I suppose.

This was a memorable mother-daughter bonding experience and we are both thrilled with our lightened do’s. Thanks Shyanne!

I love the very excited and pleased look on Freja’s face.

Very memorable time for you both to remember and do together. I love all the fun pictures, and the braids from both of your hair. You both will be blessed for doing this service.

Oh, how cute. How lovely to have that straight hair. I could never cut my hair like that. I'd have "triangle head!" What a fun thing to do. You both look adorable. When was this?
