Summer Cut

For the longest time, Olivia had been trying to grow her hair long like Rapunzel. Unfortunately her hair doesn't grow super fast, and it was getting a little damaged and had some split ends that needed to be taken care of. Still, I feel that her hair is part of her body, so it should be her say. She surprised me this morning by asking if she could get a short haircut. A couple of her little friends had recently gotten short bobs, and I guess she wanted to join the club.

She was excited/nervous/proud about getting her first "big girl" haircut. She sat up tall in the chair and moved her head as instructed by the stylist.

OK, I can't even deal with how grown up she looks. And it's so easy to take care of. She was not a fan of having the tangles combed out each morning and now that is not an issue.

Nearly as pretty, but not quite of course, was this fruit tart that we made later in the day while the air conditioning guys were working upstairs. I used the recipe from Vegan Pie in the Sky, with a shortbread crust, cashew cream filling, and lots of lovely fruits glazed with apricot jam.
