About Me

My photo
Where do I begin? I guess At the beginning! I live in beautiful Tasmania, Australia with my wonderful hubby, Matthew and our four angels (part time devils) Isaac, Reuben, Isabella, and Charlotte. Currently I'm a stay-at-home mum and I absolutely love that. Nothing else compares. I'm also studying the Master of Teaching part-time and I'm serving as the relief society president of our ward. I love being outside, especially in summer. I love big windows & lots of light. I love swimming, running and mowing the lawn! my favourite vegetable is carrots (or potatoes if mum's baked them) and I love fresh fruit salad. My most favourite thing to do is spend time with my precious family.

going going gone...

For ages Bella has been asking me to cut her hair into a short bob like mine.  I have been a little opposed to the idea simply because with her hair being long she can easily do it herself by pulling it quickly into a pony tail. It's easy to put up for dancing, swiming and soccer etc.  She has pretty hair and it suits her long. Eventually I came to realise that she is probably old enough to make decisions about her hair now so two weeks ago (I know I'm a bit slow blogging it) we got the scissors out and went for the BIG CHOP!  here are the photos.  I'm interested to know what you think Bride.  

BEFORE: Bella with her cuzzy, Jack at Christmas time

The first snips! 
(Bella very excited, me very nervous)

AFTER: So beautiful.
We reached a compromise with the length.  
Long enough to fit in a pony tail but short enough to be a bob.

I think it is just the photo that makes it look darker.
