I fell in love & bought several items at the flea market (wanted to take the hydrangea home!) but saving them for another FF. Today though, I wanted to share my beautiful new/old music book and a pair of scissors I found.
I have a bit of a scissor fetish right now!
The photos are the perfect lead into something I'm weighing...a lot.
When was the last time you did something really brave? I don't consider myself a brave person and I've never done anything that I would consider brave. Every year there is an event called
BRAVE THE SHAVE
with St Baldrick's Foundation,
a volunteer organization that raises money for children cancer research. 175,000 kids are diagnosed with each year. That number is just too high. Austin braves the shave and actually looks forward to it each year.
That's Austin on the right.
Austin is already collecting money for this years event. I had the itch to brave the shave last year. It was just an itch because of the whole bravery thing. This year is different. I keep thinking, how and when did hair get so much power? When I cut my hair pixie short, I'm always telling people, "it's only hair, it grows back." Kids with cancer don't get a choice wether or not to shave their heads. It's not that I'm not brave, vanity is not an issue. I want to be a part of something bigger than myself. Right now it's more of a courtesy situation-I work in an elementary school. It would be a total disruption of instruction time if one day Ms Kelly had hair and the next day...oops...bald Ms Kelly walks into class.
So today I'm having a meeting with the principal. I'm going to ask her thoughts. Then my really big idea is to get the school involved somehow!
Shaving my head and raising money for children's cancer research would be the bravest thing I've ever done.
What's the bravest thing you've ever done?
Happy (brave the shave) snapping!
