This past weekend was my birthday, and I’ve now officially embarked upon my 4th decade of life. As a special treat, my younger brothers and sister, as well as my parentsd came to visit. We had fun showing them around the French Quarter, and I had fun with my new digital camera.
Shortly after I met up with Nate and Joy, we came upon the acrobatic street performers across from Jackson Square. Even they took a break for the war as a noisy peace protest made its way down Decatur. I turned around, and there was a French Quarter wedding in progress.
All in all I had a great weekend. I spent a lot of time with my family, barely any time on the Internet and took a lot of pictures. For the record, (because some people don’t know about my recent drastic makeover), here are before and after pictures:
People have been asking me why I cut my hair after having it long for so many years. I really don’t have an answer. I just felt like it was time. Perhaps it was the headset I wear at work for the phone — it kept getting tangled in my hair.
Anyway, its short now and I may keep it this way for a while. I had trimmed my hair down a couple of years ago, only to let it down again.
