Who's That Girl?

I'll give you one guess.

Yes, yes, it's me. And no, B and I didn't break up or anything like that. Although I am guilty of working that extremely cliché move of chopping my hair off after a big breakup in the past, that's not the case here, I'm very pleased to say. I just figured, why the heck not? You know- new year, new age, new 'do...

24 hours after it was cut, I found myself feeling pangs of "cutter's remorse." It's not like I'm a stranger to hair experimentation- on the contrary. My hair has been all lengths- from a short pixie cut, to long, down to the middle of my back, and all stages in between. That said, a person does get used to their hair looking a certain way, and it has been many years since my neck has been exposed to the elements. Nonetheless, I was ready for a change. Part of me wishes I had gone even shorter, but if I had, I would now, in all likelihood, be freaking out over how short it is. So, I guess this is all part of the "getting used to it" phase. I wouldn't be a girl if I didn't have second thoughts, right? But, I'm happy with it overall.

Maybe this new do' will help me with regaining some knitting and spinning mojo- one can only hope!

Oh man, who can't relate to cutter's remorse? You may recall that I had a haircut last summer that I seriously regretted, and the outpooring of sympathy I got was unbelievable (my highest comment count ever by far) -- everyone has been there!

I happen to think your hair looks terrific and flattering, and I bet within a week you can't even remember why you had your previous style for so long. :)
