I couldn't resist. I have spent the past two weeks debating whether or not I should cut all of my hair off.  Everyone told me not to do it. 

Well, I caved. 

I had proudly rocked the mid-back length hair for four years. I loved it, but it was hard to manage, and I hated putting it up for my McConn shifts. I was trying not to do the typical "cut your hair once you get married" thing, but it just makes too much sense. Now I understand why every new wife follows this pattern. 

Thankfully I had the support of Mr. Shepherd. He was happy to hear that I would no longer be able to plop my hair into a messy bun on the tippy top of my head (he really hated that look). He was so happy that he made a little video of the hair chopping experience. Or maybe he just did it because he is obsessed with his new iphone...

Either way, I am happy to have a new do with a feather for flair.

What do you think?


  1. Bahh!
    You cut your hair!!!
    I actually think you could have gone shorter ;)
    And a feather year new woman :)

  2. I love it! You're gorgeous no matter what, but the new cut is so so great!

    And I agree with Jath - you could rock really short hair no problem.

    Love the feather. Love you.

  3. Hey now don't forget, this girl right here told you to go for it! :) Seriously, I love it!

  4. I don't know if Jath was being serious, but honestly I would love it if you tried, JUST ONCE, a pixie cut because I really think you would be lovely with one, BUT it's obviously not my hair, or my life, so that would be your brave move...this was brave enough - you are truly such a beauty.

  5. aw, very cute. I'm currently growing my hair out, but I occasionally dream of short hair, I then snap back into reality and remember that what I really want is long hair. Have a beautiful day.
