That's right...I made a change. Hard to believe for anyone who knows me...I've had long hair for a long...long...long...time! I rarely change it much. Not because I don't desire to, but because honestly...it really isn't priority for me. I don't think about it...I don't ruminate on it...it's doesn't occur to me on a regular basis that a change might look (and feel) nice.
But I was approached for an opportunity to cut it LIVE on a local television show Twin Cities Live. I was all for the experience and said yes. So below you'll see the before (shameful) shots...looking at them now I am fairly embarrassed.
Keep in mind I had NO makeup on and had just washed my face to get ready for the show. I had also not washed my hair yet...(but really this is pretty accurate to how it looks most days).
I really like it. It's fresh, new and healthy. The ponytail they cut was at least 6-7 inches, plus the amount she cut to straighten it out and then the massive amount of layers she cut in. It feels so nice.
So...now I guess I just need to keep making changes! Physical, emotional and relational.
Here we go 2011~

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
