So I've officially been here for two years! Since I know you want photo evidence... Here is my hair about two years ago (end of May 2011), at MBL.

And here's my hair today! I'm marking TBL with my finger. :) I apologize for the rattiness, I was working against braid AND bun waves.

And here's a bonus picture from a month ago to show what it normally looks like.

So yay! I'm so happy to have come this far and gotten so much wonderful advice from you guys. Thank you! I have ups and downs with my hair, especially since having my stress shed last year (I think I've got some baby hairs growing back *crosses fingers*) but at least for now I think I'll keep growing.

And in other exciting news....

My boyfriend proposed to me yesterday!!! It was actually HIS birthday, but he said it was a present to him, too. He took me to a park nearby and got down on one knee and everything. :) I know it's OT but I couldn't resist sharing.

CONGRATS! :cheer:

Thanks, Annibelle! That's what happens when you barely trim lol I suppose. ;) If I were more patient I would have waited until my hair looked better to take that length picture, though.

Well, we've been together five and a half years, and we'd talked about it before and I'd told him I was ready, AND he was acting a little shady a few days beforehand, so I sort of guessed. I didn't know for sure though. And it definitely doesn't make it any less special, of course. :)

Beautiful hair. And I love the sapphire. I love it when they really are blue--not kind of blackish--you can see the quality is great. And it suits your hand. Congrats!

Thank you! I've gotten one or two "Oh, that's different for an engagement ring," but I absolutely LOVE having a colored stone. It's the birthstone of our relationship, too (September) so it's more meaningful than a diamond. But yeah, he picked out the stone itself. He has good taste.


Congratulations

And you have wonderful hair too.

That's virtually ALL I'm thinking about! Lol! I really love long, curly hairstyles like these:

Unfortunately I'm not sure my hair could hold curl like that well, so I might have to get creative with my natural texture. :)

Ah, so pretty (the ring *and* the hair).
My mom's engagement ring was a sapphire with two little diamonds. I loved that ring.

Congratulations :)

Thanks, all!


Congratulations all round! That's a seriously fast growth rate you've got there :)
Thanks! I'm glad you think so. ;) Actually my measured growth rate is less than the average, as far as I can tell. I just barely ever trim lol. I just hope people realize that patience is more important than having a light speed growth rate.

My mom's engagement ring was a sapphire with two little diamonds. I loved that ring.

Congratulations :)
I love my sapphire. :) It actually has four nearly invisible surprise diamonds facing out on either side of the setting, which make it more special and also sparklier of course. ;)
