Guess what happened on the way to the prom


I asked Emily if she would like her hair trimmed;
She said actually, it would be a cut!
Skeptical sister.


A pleasant young hairdresser asked several times if Emily wanted it that short.


She did!


On to the florist to pick up her date's boutonniere.
Tonight is the homecoming dance.


"Keep it in the crisper section of the refrigerator."


The haircut, the boutonniere, the finger.


Her cousin Caitie, "doing makeup."


Skeptical sister.


I believe only one girlfriend was in on the haircut secret.
It will be a surprise appearance.

  2. Emily looks adorable. Teenage girls are so guarded about their hair and seldom take the chance to look different than their peers. I think she has inherited some of her grandmother's spirit.
