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.
