Dear Long Brown Hair,

We've had a lot of good times together.
I'll always remember the way you flew in the air,
made comfy beds for creatures,

got caught in a flock of birds,

and were covered by hairy, sweaty men.
But I feel that we are no longer right for each other and it's time to move on.

There's a little girl out there who will love you,

and there's a little girl in me,

who wants nothing more than to feel the wind on her shoulders.

The Book Florist said...

Having short hair is a lot of fun, isn't it? Hopefully your daring move is the beginning of a long and loving romance! You do look very quirky and young with short hair, so I think you have triumphed. Take care.

Tricia Orchard said...

Way to go! I grew mine out so that I could donate it to "Locks of Love". What a great feeling!

nova said...

Oh la la! Very fancy!

This was such a sweet post. I absolutely loved the last three parts. I donated to locks of love a few months back too and am in the process of growing it out, maybe again next spring (but I love the feeling of the wind in my hair). :]

Thanks for sharing these photo stories! They're so fun to read.

I once upon a time cut mine very, very short (pixie short) and was amazed at the personality that emerged. ;)

Hope yours is equally surprising! :)
