As a stylist you would think I have this crazy connection to wearing my hair in nothing but pure perfection, but I'm sad to say its usually a great big mess. A birds nest as my husband would call it. I just like to justify it by saying its the "boho messy chic style" but in reality, it really is just a big birds nest that my husband loves to feed. Sometimes when its pretty matted, Robbie will pretend to drop crumbs in my hair to feed the little birds. Jerk.
Robbie asked me to cut his hair this past Monday night, he likes it one way...and I like it another. Its a reoccurring argument that has no peace. I like it short and he likes that stupid southern swoop. So Monday night...I agreed to cut his hair thinking we were on the same page about his length. I of course was super excited to cut it off and poor Robbie just thought he was getting a little trim....woops.
I felt absolutely awful taking my husbands confidence by whacking his hair off to look like a GQ hair model (he didn't think that very much) that I offered to take the only thing that's been the same for years off of me. "I'll cut my hair too if it makes you feel any better?" Then we pinky promised and pinky promises in this family are serious! So the next day I cut it off.
Moral of story: DON'T EVER PINKY PROMISE TO DO THIS.
But I must say, short hair sure is fun! Not to mention my shower/blow drying/brushing time has dropped dramatically! And the birds have found a new home. No more nest :)
Oh the things we do for love :)

Sorry for being MIA this week. Just trying to catch up with life since i've been back. Hope you're weekend was peaceful and relaxing just before the crazy holidays! Robbie and I are staying here in Birmingham to celebrate with his humongous family. What are you doing?
This past weekend I flew down to Phoenix to celebrate our friends Joanna and John to be joined together in marriage. Joanna and John have been long time friends. Who we wish them the very best in life! This is a post full of pictures! hope you enjoy!
The beautiful Joanna
I love you Joanna! I'm so glad I was part your perfect day! Good luck on your new exciting life!
(sorry its so long...They're all so good! I couldn't decide!)
There's two things to celebrate for. Robbie and I made it to 6 months of being married today. And yesterday was my birthday. This last year has been one of the most exciting and most wonderful year i've ever had. From getting married, to moving, to starting my wonderful career... 21 was a good year. Within that year I married the most wonderful human being I know. May 15th was 6 months ago, but it feels like yesterday that I said "I Do". Ive been blessed. So blessed. My wish when I blow out the candles is for another wonderful blissful year like the last with the one I ever so love.
I arrived in Phoenix yesterday morning. Seeing my family again has been so great! I've missed them so much. I've also missed a lot thats happened here. For one, I was still to meet my brand new nephew! sweet baby Jeremiah.
