my yearly chop

So I get the itch about once a year (that's not true, it's more often) to CHOP my hair off. I have been trying to grow it long for about 7 years now, but I just always want to change it because I love change. Anyway, about once I year I do chop or drastically change my hair without cutting the length. Usually I change the color or get bangs. Since I have been very happy to keep my hair dark like my natural color, I chose today to do the bang-thing.

{bang}

That's me, a little closer than I would like, but I am using a portrait lens so that is just what has to happen, my arms only reach so far you know. ;o)

I think with my new bangs I look exactly like my mother. I like getting bangs because even though I prefer my hair totally loose and kind of hippie parted down the middle... this gives me the look I like when I wear a ponytail, which is a little windblown and childlike.


Playing an oldie but goodie for my music musing. Dave Matthews (who will be here in October and I would LOVE to see at ACL) huge hit from the late 90's, "Satellite." I remember the first time I heard this, I was riding in a black Camero or Firebird driving through the Hill Country of Texas with one of my oldest friends on our way to Baskin Robin... Oh the memories from trips to Waltonia Lodges!

You look great! I love the bangs. I'm getting my hair cut on Monday. I might just have to consider some bangs!

Love the "do". I'm too chicken to get bangs like that. I'll have to stick w/ my little sweeping bangs for now. I do like change so maybe later! Love the song!
