LOCKS OF LOVE... MAKING MEMORIES

THE BEFORE SHOT
WE TREATED OURSELVES TO A LITTLE TREAT BEFORE THE "FREE" HAIRCUTS:)


YIKES... THERE IT GOES... (Oh my, when I saw this picture, I thought... wooh... I look like my mother... that was a little wild:)


COULD SHE LOOK ANY MORE PRECIOUS?... I KNOW I AM A LITTLE BIAS:)



AFTER... WITH A HANDFUL OF HAIR IN MY HAND.
Anna has been asking to have her hair cut for probably the last year. Honestly, with having older brothers, I just love having the opportunity to put her long hair in braids, pony tails etc... it is so special after having boys. So I have held her off for a long time. But, all for the sake of making a special memory together we went today to BOTH get our hair cut for locks of love. Truly, I have never been one to spend time doing my hair so to have it long and just be able to wash and go has been the best for me. I have had my hair short before, but it has been a long time. I think this will still be easy to take care of, so I am thankful for that.
My friend Nikki came along to take pictures and Anna was beside herself with joy through the whole thing. She kept saying I want it shorter and afterwards was a little over the top excited... I would have sworn she had eaten a whole pack of Easter peeps... but she was just happy. It was pretty funny.
I love spending time with my little girl... ( Although the haircut has made her look older... I don't really like that too much) I love making memories with my little girl... This was a good day:)

Ok...this is amazing! You both look so good! Anna is over the top cute and Sara, this cut took years off -- not that you needed it -- but it just looks so young and fresh on you! Love it, love it, love it!!!

OH MY! I'm away from Blogger for a few days and look what I miss! Sara, you both look GREAT! Seriously beautiful!

I have never been able to have my hair very long because I feel "dirty" with it hanging around my shoulders. A weird, quirky thing for me, I guess. And I thought it so interesting that you think the short hair makes Anna look older...I've always thought short hair on my girls makes them look younger!

I'm so glad your friend went along to take pictures so you could share your experience with us. I know it was a special day for both of you and I know you will bless someone else with your beautiful strands of hair!

I miss you! I think of you all the time, literally! I wish we lived closer! Sending you a BIG SOUTHERN HUG!!!

Love,
Tonya

I love your new hair!!! And what a great experience and memory for you two.
I chickened out and didn't cut my hair. I'm keeping it long for a little while at least...

I hope you're all doing well!
