Donated to Locks of Love

On Saturday, I got my hair cut. And when I say hair cut, I mean huge amount of hair cut off. ha ha Here is the BEFORE shot, taken with Gracie's digital camera:

I had 12 inches cut off to make 5 pony tails worth of hair to be donated to Locks of Love ( I guess you could say that I have a bit of hair shock, but I'm so happy I did it.

When Meghan was born and needed 3 transfusions, I wasn't able to donate blood to her because I had just given birth. I decided then that I would grow my hair out and donate it because it seemed to be all that I could do in those scary NICU days.

Well, the day finally arrived and a little over 2 1/2 years later, my hair is now gone. I need to mail it off to be made into a wig.

You look great, Jen!
What an amazing thing for you to do.
Love the pic of Gracie too. How precious she is.

Well now, of course I feel like a dork! I was thinking about both the girls and I accidentally typed in Grace's name when I meant Meghan. Well...they're both precious! Ok, foot in mouth and flushed cheeks....LOL!

Oh WOW! Your hair looks like a pic from high school, but minus the braces! It's totally adorable! I wish my hair chop went that smoothly. Enjoy your spare time since it won't take you 5 hours to dry your hair anymore. LOL :p
