I have decided to grow my hair out and it feels so good! My hair grows at a fairly quick pace, but you know... just not fast enough when you want it now. I think i'll be getting some extensions to hold me over, but i also got bangs cut recently. I really love them, except now that i'm back into my running and now officially addicted to spinning, i need something to hold my hair and bangs back. But - let me tell you, i seriously have the oddest shaped head ever. I can wear headbands, but anything that wraps all the way around my head slides back in a matter of minutes. I found this project on this blog and i think i'm going to try it out. I love that i can use my own fabrics and i love how shabby it looks. So we shall see.
"The process of adopting a child pushes your personal envelope as a woman, as a mother, and ultimately, as a human being. It takes more courage than you think you have, offers more self-knowledge than you think you want and reassembles your characteristics into someone familiar but changed."
