A New Look

Once upon a time, I was a girl who was very brave with her hair. I had the most amazing girl that I went to who would say things like, "I was watching Leno last night and saw this haircut that I thought would look perfect on you, do you trust me?" and I would say, "Yes!" and I would leave with the most amazing new style, length, or color that I never would have thought of. And life was good. Then I got married and moved to Michigan, and the amazing hair girl had another baby and stopped cutting hair, and I had to find someone new. That is when I got the worst hair cut I have ever experienced. It was basically a mullet. And I cried for hours. And almost 2 years later the only time I had my hair cut was when I let my cousin trim it about a year ago (she is a professional, and she didn't take much off). But, thanks to the generous birthday gift from Lucas' sister, Loralee, I finally faced my fears and tonight I got my hair cut by someone completely new, at a salon. Before I went in I was so nervous I was almost sick to my stomach (girls will probably understand this feeling more than guys), but I got in and heard her talking to the girl who's hair she was about to cut and she said, "This is what I'm thinking for your hair, do you trust me?" and the girl said, "yes," and when she was finished her hair looked amazing. And I wasn't nervous anymore. And she put me in the chair and played with my hair a little and I told her the minimum and maximum length, and then I basically let her have free reign, and I love it. It is the haircut I hoped for, but had no clue how to describe. I am so happy! I know you can't tell without a before and after picture, but she took of 6-7 inches! Now that I've found someone I can trust with my hair I'll live happily ever after...until we move.

Kim, You look adorable. I love it. It is a good length for you. I'm so happy you like it. I know the feeling about hair. I have had some unforgiveable cits myself. I went to a gal for 15 years and all of a sudden she is done so I had to bite the bullet also. You are right a guy would never understand this. Kinda like when girls need chocolate!! It's a great day when you get a great look. Miss ys, love you both. Mom & Dad in MI

Kim,

I know what you were feeling, I too had the terrible mullet experience once. I like the new haircut.

And Lucas, thanks for the update on the Wisdoms. You must start school late if they aren't moving until September. And thanks in advance for checking up on them and for having them over. I know they will appreciate having some connection right away. You will really like Kyle, he is wonderful.
