I did something really drastic today. I chopped off fifteen inches and donated it to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths. They tweeted me earlier today and let me know that I was number 311,159 and that made me so happy that others have been donating their hair to cancer patients.
I’ve been talking about chopping it off for months now, but sometimes you need a swift kick in the butt to instill a change in your life. That swift kick came in the news that a close family member had been diagnosed with cancer and was going to need chemotherapy. Chopping my hair off is nothing compared to chemo, so I called my wonderful stylist Katie and told her it had to go. Want a peek?
My husband has never seen me with short hair. He completely forgot I was going to cut my hair today and he had the best reaction. EVER! He had his huge signature smile, complete with dimples and said, “Oh my gosh, you cut your hair.” Yes, yes I did love.
I’ve been on a feel good high all day from my good deed. I love that my mom ponytail is gone and that someone else is going to appreciate it and hopefully it will brighten up their life during difficult times.
Want that feel good high I have and want to get rid of that mom pony too? Donate to Pantene! Unlike the other big charity, they don’t charge for their wigs. Yep, 100% free for female cancer patients. I love that.
I’ve got vino and an amazing man who just showered yours truly with gifts (including a new sewing machine & jewelry) waiting for some quality time with me. See you all tomorrow for another paper craft tutorial!
