I don't know what it is about this time of year - but everyone seems to be cleaning up, cleaning out, and organizing. Must be the fact that we don't have to be a recluse in our home and can get out and about.
I have read a few blogs and have talked to some friends and it seems we are all doing some spring cleaning - in our homes and in our heads. I see a lot of people setting worthy goals and trying to spend more time with their families. Go you!
This past month has been really fun. I loved exploring new recipes, ideas, products, and restaurants. I also loved seeing some of my loyal reader and new readers win some of those great things.
If you didn't know, my blog is kind of new - coming up on its first birthday. So this past month was a first of its kind. It was not only great to try something new, but I learned a little bit about myself as a blogger. I feel like you and I lost who I was. I felt like I wasn't showing enough of me or my food. I hope you don't mind if once and a while I let you in on a little bit about me, rather than just my food.
Here is the first of that expose:
I had a big change a couple weeks ago. I have always wanted to donate my hair to those who are suffering from hair loss due to chemotherapy. I am the perfect candidate - I have lots of hair (thickness wise I mean), my hair grows really fast, and I don't care about chopping my hair. I think it is such a great cause and have personally seen family members benefit from these types of places. If you follow me on twitter then you already know - but on April 20th, I cut my hair off. Well, about 10 inches off. It was a bit of a shock for me - but it is a fun, more hip 'do now. I hope someone else gets a fabulous new style because of the hair I donated.
Here are a couple of the pictures I took of the before and during... I still haven't taken an after shot. But I will. (Is the suspense killing you?!)
...coming soon: after shots!
