♥ Locks of Love ♥

That’s right. My friend Tanda and I decided to donate our hair to http://www.locksoflove.org/. So naturally, we had to have a photo shoot beforehand to document our long hair.

We celebrated with froyo and then mailed our hair across the country to FL. Locks of Love is an organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. The hairpieces that they provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers. Several of my family members have been affected by diseases such as cancer; I hope that they are able to stay strong and know that everyday is a new beginning. ♥

Taylor Swift Concert!

My parents treated Kori and I to Taylor Swift concert tickets for Kori’s 20th birthday…..and boy did we have a blast! It was an amazing show with tons of costume and set changes, dancers, crazy lighting effects, sparks, and confetti. It was a truly magical, unforgettable night. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
