chop chop

this weekend i chopped off 10 inches of hair for locks of love.  this is the second time i'll have donated to this charity, which creates hairpieces for children suffering "long-term medical hair loss."  and for someone like me, who willingly submits to only the most minimal of trims about once a year, it makes it a lot easier to make a big change.  nothing like picturing these smiling faces to put one's vanity in perspective.

as it happens, today is my birthday, so this haircut is also a great way to start a new year!

post haircut, my cousin and her beau took me out for an early birthday dinner.  pomegranate martinis are my new fave!

i have always loved baklava.  this one was garnished with pistachios.

we also ordered a melt-in-your-mouth tiramisu.

our sugar binge was preceded by a proper (and delicious) meal -- lebanese cuisine -- but it seems i was too busy eating and socializing to take any pictures.  priorities in order, thank you very much.
