I haven't been very active here as of late, trying to improve! I missed my second LHC anniversary by a few days, as I was abroad on the 19th (stuck in Budapest, travelled back to Finland on a coach for almost 30 hours, thanks to the volcano), but I thought I'd post a few pics even if I'm a bit late :)

I just measured my hair for the first time in a long time today and I'm finally past 40'', yay! :cheese: I've been hovering somewhere between TB and classic for an endless amount of time which is mainly thanks to my big butt and a few bigger trims, but I am nearing classic which is where I think I'll finally be happy with my hair.


Anyway, here's a pic from when I started to grow my hair in 2004:

This was taken around when I joined LHC two years ago:

And these are from today:

With flash (the clothes that I'm wearing make my hair look shorter than it actually is, what with both the shirt and the trousers hanging so low):

Without flash, hands at classic.

Please excuse the silly shirt and the tired face.

And a few bonus shots from my recent trip to Ukraine and Hungary (which ended up being a trip to Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia as well, thanks to the traveling issues):

I promise I will try to spend a bit more time here than I have in the past few months!

Thank you all for your lovely comments! They made my day :)

loreley, I loved it! The main goal of our trip was to visit a friend who's worked for the past year in a town called Uzhhorod in Ukraine, but we flew to Budapest and spent a few days there as well, absolutely loved the city! It was like from a fairytale, I definitely want to go back some day!
