a long time coming.

"When was the last time you did something for the first time?"

This post isn't really about something we (Max and I) are doing for the very first time... but it is definitely about a few things we haven't done it a LONG time. Plus, I just really like this quote. Isn't great?!

Moving on....

I have been avoiding saying this out loud and putting it down in words. When I say I am going to do something (ride my bike across the USA, move to Australia, get a Master's degree) well- I mean it! I like nothing less then people who always say they are going to do things and never follow through. While I am sure I am guilty of thinking about doing things and maybe even whispering them out loud without following through, that is rare and not something I like to make a habit out of. I would hate to be accused of being a "wolf crier".

Although I am not doing something for the first time- I am definitely doing something I haven't done in a LONG time. Like YEARS (and 25 lbs ago). But since I leaving tonight to go there and it is actually happening (gulp!) I guess I can share it.

But before I do I will share with you what Max is doing for the first time in a long time.

Getting a HAIR CUT! He did it yesterday... finally.

I posted this picture a few weeks ago stating that my husband really, really needed a hair cut. I told him. Byron told him. Every friend he has ever known has told him. Let's be honest- it was time!

I LOVE his long locks and his crazy blonde curls, but when he could almost put it in a ponytail we knew it had to go.

And so it went.  All of it.

So Max officially has short hair for the first time in a long, long time!

And me.... well, I will be doing a triathlon on Sunday. My first triathlon in a LONG time. I haven't trained. I don't have the right equipment. And I am representing my work (they sponsored us). Scared, yes! But sometimes you just have to get out there and put yourself on a limb. Do a triathlon. Get your hair cut short.

Ask yourself... When is the last time you did something for the first time?
