Because we've been having so much snow

I thought I would share :)
Today I had a "calamity day". I am very tired of these days. I worked 10 days in January, and as a sub this is putting a huge dent in my wallet. So I decided to make the most of today. Tim was sick and I was bored so we took some pictures to document the amount of snow we have been getting, because there is rain coming and it is supposed to melt it away. I can honestly say that snow is not my favorite. I mean it really isn't my favorite. I remember getting excited about it when I was younger, but now I see it falling from the sky and I become sad :( I am so sick of snow!!! It is beautiful don't get me wrong, but it costs so many problems. Roads become slippery, cars run into each other, roads become undriveable, and don't let me forget about the fact that it snows so hard you loose visibility!! SCARY!!

Trying out the self timer. This one was okay

But this one was better :)

Tim wanted to throw things -_-

The snow was deeper. It was kind of warm today, so it has started to melt

Tim throwing snowballs at the house.

Got it right on the release :)

So, the snow was not sticky enough. So FAIL!

The Post About My Hair

So for friends who have known me for a while, you can obviously tell that my hair has most definitely changed over the past few months. This has a lot to do with the fact that I was fed up with my old hair and needed to do something different. For years I have been trying to grow my hair. I can honestly say that I have been obsessed with growing long hair since I was a little girl. Maybe it was all those princess movies that had girls with long flowing hair ( Pocahontas, Princess Jasmine, Ariel).

I was on a visit to my parent's house after spending a summer in Ohio. I had just gotten another perm and noticed how much shorter my hair was. I was so fed up and mad! I just knew that there had to be a way to solve the issues I felt I was having with my hair. So I got on my mom's tablet and started searching for ways to grow hair, and I happened upon I noticed how healthy the hair was on the women who were on the site. I spent hours pouring over "natural hair" and happened upon videos on YouTube. It was then that I noticed that there was nothing wrong with my hair and should not longer continue trying to hide what God gave me. So, I decided on a day in Early August that I was no longer going to perm my hair anymore. I was going to be happy with what God gave me. I can honestly say that I have never been so happy with my hair, and it was all because I was willing to accept what God gave me.

I am now a year and a half perm free and I feel so much healthier. The change in hair health has also lead to me wanting to change my health in general. I just thank God for getting through to me and helping me see that I am beautiful the way He made me. So, with all this being said I plan to do posts about natural hair, and sharing some of the sites that I have found that have helped me. But for now enjoy these photos of me and my hair :D

What is your hair story? Share them with me!!!
