A New Look

So, I FINALLY cut my hair! For those of you who don't know, about 8 months ago, I was diagnosed with a disease called Alopecia Areata. It is an auto-immune disease in which your body attacks hair follicles. Well, you may not see in these pictures, but I have several bald spots on my head. It is not a curable disease, but can be treated with steroid injections, which I have been receiving. I have had quite a bit of regrowth, but still lose hair. Well, I am going to try short hair for awhile-hopefully my hair will seem thicker and I can actually wear my hair down. Here are the results:

Rachel~ I love your hair short! Sorry to hear about the "disease," but you've got great short hair...you can totally pull it off!

I've been blog-stalking you for a bit and think little Robbie is the most darling little boy I've seen in quite some time!

I hope all is going well...thinking of you~
