So today was the day that I officially cut off my long hair. Yesterday the temperature in Abu Dhabi was 117 degrees Fahrenheit and my long hair is just not going to cut it in the hot weather. So, I went to my Dad’s hair salon – Steve’s Styles and made a daddy-daughter day of it! Here is a picture of me before the haircut . . .

Megan, who cut it, put it into four braids and cut each one off. Here is my hair halfway through with only two braids left to go:

After a total of about 12 inches off – here is what I now look like:

This will be much better in the Abu Dhabi heat! Afterwards my Dad and I went out for a bite to eat for lunch

And of course I cannot forget to mention that today is my brother’s birthday. Happy 22nd Austin!
