28 Days of Happiness :: 4


Photobucket

$25 kitchen cuts

I did hair for 5 years at a really great salon in Atlanta before becoming a Mama. Now retired from the biz, I sometimes will cut a friend's hair in my kitchen for $25. My dad scored that awesome retro chair for me at the flea market. I love to have people sit in my old chair (that is so wobbly that I have to put Dr. Suess books beneath the legs to keep it stable) and let me play with their hair.

It allows me to flex my brain
and gives me a little extra cash.
It makes me oh so happy.

The girl with the flour in her hair said...

I would gladly let you play with my hair. It could use a little assistance. It's not too sure what it wants to be wen it grows up.
