Books, books, books and purple hair!

I've always wanted to do something funky with my hair.
So I finally got it cut!
5 inches gone... it feels so strange.
And because that wasn't enough....
I DYED IT PURPLE. =D I've always wanted to do crazy highlights, but I never thought they'd actually show up without bleaching first, so I was really surprised with how this turned out (unbleached)...

Spent the day with my nephew, who happens to be the most adorable child on this earth.
No, I am not biased in the least.

There was a surprise shower that was glorious. Usually I'm not a big fan of rain, but when it's warm it's lovely.

Who needs an umbrella?

I found my dream library today...
