Say Yes to Carrots?

It’s been awhile since my last blog post. The past two months have been crazy! With a big move, learning a different city and meeting new people, it’s been hard getting back into the swing of things…and by things I mean writing and my blog, which I dearly miss.

He came out and I literally had a bag of my hair on the floor. While he was initially mad … More Big Chop Diary
