Ginger Locks of Love

Okay so I know I posted wednesday about my dad and this may seem a little repetitive but I swear it’s a really cute story! You know your dad’s an awesome guy when he grows his hair out long enough to donate to children who suffer from long term medical hair loss.

Five years ago this October my dads best friend lost his life to cancer. Losing somebody you love and care about is one of the most difficult things a person can endure especially in the middle of their life. My dad got a tattoo as a remembrance for his friend Jim, visits him at his grave and constantly keeps his spirit living through photos and memories.

About three years ago my dad decided that in honor of Jim as well as other people suffering with this horrible disease all around the world, he was going to do something not many 50 year olds can do – grow out his hair and donate it. Locks of Love is an organization that that makes wigs for children under the age of 21 – their hair has to be ten inches long and in a ponytail before it is cut and sent in. It’s funny because it’s not every day you see one of your friends fathers with hair longer than their ears. His hair is longer than some of my friend’s. He may get funny looks and silly harassment from outsiders who think he’s a total weirdo and going through a midlife crisis because his hair is so long, but that didn’t stop him along his journey.

On thursday of next week my dad will be cutting and donating his hair after a long three years. I’m proud of him for fulfilling this goal of wanting to change somebody’s life so drastically. I know the recipient is going to LOVE the bright orange, curly hair they receive and hopefully it means as much to them as the experience did to my dad.

I mean honestly, who wouldn’t want this as their new hair? I know I would…and i’m i’m not just being bias!

Kids

Okay so nobody would really know this but I love little kids so much! Babies, tots, just up until the peak age of eight or so and I’m in love. They are literally the cutest, and funniest people on the face of the earth and I think it’s safe to say nobody can deny that. I came across this video the other day and was  falling off my chair laughing because of how god damn cute this six year old is. Smart, charming, hilarious – does it get any better than that? The best part about it is that he has an undeniable love for redheads, at the age of six! He even has a ginger girlfriend who is 26….kid is obviously the man. You guys seriously ALL have to check it out it is literally the cutest thing ever I had to share. It’s an interview of him on the Ellen DeGeneres Show talking about his love for redheads and his fascination of the solar system. Definitely something you have to watcht!!
