Current Mood: happy

Shake back your hair; let go your laughter.

hair

Today my hair is pulled back and every once in a while this tugs at my head and I have to let it go and shake it out. I am new to growing my hair longer and frankly love this feeling.

I've already been found by the one who was looking for one just like me (whether by looks or personality or both), but I love the message to BE YOURSELF and LOVE YOURSELF!
