I love this picture because of the memories it brings up. For senior prom, my best friend and I made similar dresses to wear. I was then prompted to spend some time going through my photo album to reminisce on those days. :) It also reminded me that I used to have hair like that :X.

Oh, how lovely!

Why did you cut your hair, if I may ask?

Long hair is difficult to maintain and I have better ways to utilize my time. Not to mention the amount of money I save not having to buy all that conditioner and shampoo. Although, I tend to spend that money on hair dye. :lol:

Sometimes I miss it, but I then realize that I would look like all of the other girls.

I live next to a college campus. Almost all of the girls have long hair and wear the same types of clothes.
