Birthday Bouquets

I am super thankful for the many many people who made my birthday special. There are too many to name, so thank you all!

The week of my birthday I was still enjoying the beautiful roses I received from David the week before. I am so thankful to be blessed with a husband who loves to buy flowers!

Thursday and Friday I attended a women's retreat and it was super AWESOME and inspiring! On Friday night David came home and surprised me with a cute bag filled with beautiful tulips. I was totally surprised since my birthday wasn't until Saturday. Here are the tulips...


Saturday morning at bible study I was showered with more gifts including 2 more beautiful bouquets of flowers. Yellow daffodils and yellow mini carnations. I love daffodils because they symbolize "hope and renewal". Here are my birthday bouquets...

All good and perfect gifts are sent from above. Thank you, God!

Wavy Brunette Hair for Locks of Love Donation

So, I had been wanting to cut my hair for about the past year or so and donate it to Locks of Love. But then, I would change my mind sometimes because I liked it long too. Then, I would change my mind again every time my husband accidently pulled my hair, like when he would put his arm around my shoulder. I was like "Ouwww!" And he would be like "What, your hair?" So, I decided if it was short it wouldn't be accidently pulled all the time. And I was inspired to cut it again for Locks of Love. This time donating 15 inches of my wavy brunette hair.


Here are some before and after pics:

The biggest downside to having short hair: I have to actually style my hair now.
