Rapunzel............


She's mine, so I am a little biased,...but I think that she's beautiful.
We are about to cut off all of these wavy red tresses to donate to locks of love.
I admit that I will cry when they are gone,... but lets face it,...she is 5 years old and this is A LOT of hair to contend with in the mornings before school. Mornings have become quite the dismal occurrence around here and it has MUCH to do with the hair.
Before I could let this unbelievable hair be cut off I needed some pictures.
Nice pictures,...
good pictures,...
real pictures.
Not the kind of blurry snap shots I take, but the kind of artistic, classic pictures that my friend Jen takes. As luck would have it she is enrolled in a photography class right now, and she needed more pictures for her final presentation. So as you can see,...this relieved my guilt at using and abusing her,...
because really I was doing her a favor,...you know letting her take pictures of my kid,...right?
Didn't she do an amazing job? I think that she is ready to go out there and employ herself. (hint hint :))
She took so many fantastic ones and I only posted a few that really showed 'the hair.' It was hard not to post ALL of them.
Jen, Thank You soooo much!!!!!!!!!! Now I feel like I can cut off all of this gorgeous copper with a few less tears.
It's for a good cause...............
When I am finished crying I will post the "after" pictures. :):)

She is so beautiful! and has gorgeous long hair. I can see how it would be tough to cut it all off, but what a wonderful gift to Locks of Love.

What an amazing act of love :)

She's exquisite!! Are you familiar with Shannon Hales' Rupunzel's Revenge? I haven't read it yet, though my daughter has. That Rupunzel has outrageously long RED hair. :)

Dearest Holly, these are absolutely stunning pictures. She is a gorgeous little girl. Her hair is out of this world, but she also has sparkling eyes and loving smile.
Beautiful sentiment in the donation. Her hair will grow back in time when she will start to appreciate its beauty. Until then, it will be beautiful somewhere else. Besides, the true beauty lies always within.

These are precious beyond words!!! How smart to have done the photo shoot to lessen the sadness of cutting the tresses. My favorite was the 5th one down. : )
Thanks for sharing these with us. Tell your little princess, we're proud of her. : )
