I CUT THE BEEHIVE!

Today is my twenty-seventh birthday. It's my Golden Birthday... 27 on the 27th. I'm not sure why, but for my whole life, I've always told myself that 27 would be my favorite year... and now that 27 is finally here, I can't wait to see what it brings.

Also, I kicked my birthday off with a "why not" of all why-nots:

Long to short hair cut, Haircut before and after
Long to short hair cut, Donate your hair
Long to short hair cut, Haircut before and after

I've always been a fan of change, and for this new year of mine, I'm embracing it fully. I ended up having 12 inches cut, and I'm donating my hair to Children With Hair Loss—they accept all kinds of hair and since the tips of my hair were bleached a few years ago, I picked their charity because some of the others have requirements against bleached & highlighted hair. I went to Kendall of Roots Salon in Boise (208-514-5895) and can't recommend her enough. This new cut is spunky, sporty, and of course—extra saucy. Why not, right?

Last year as I blew out my candles, I made sure that I didn't wish for "babies or anything crazy like that." This year, let's just say I can't promise the same, though I'm in no rush to make any changes that big (or small) quite yet. Oh, 27, I can't wait to see what joy you'll bring.

Here's to new short hairstyles and a brand new year!!

  1. SO SO SO SO cute!!! I was just thinking about cutting all of mine off again. It's thinning a lot so this would be perfect!


    It looks fab on you! I pinned it and I am showing my mom :)

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I've been growing my hair out for quite some time and in the past, I've always cut it off before I was ready. Sounds like you were ready for a change. Maybe you'll inspire me to do that same thing! You look stunning!

  8. I donated for the first time when I was 27 too! I was pregnant and had a bad hair day, and that had been my goal anyway, so it was impulsive, but very rewarding. I a, pregnant again, and will donate once it is long enough again! It takes the impulsiveness and regrets away when donating it. Kudos to you! I was actually googling before and after donations photos when yours popped up. love it!

  10. Ashley, that makes me so excited to hear! How cool! I LOVE impulsive decisions, and you're so right... there's no "Oh man, wish I didn't cut my hair" when you know you're donating it. It's a win/win! Congrats on your new (soon) arrival!! You seem like the sweetest mom :)
