That was taken in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and that weather got me sick! I'm just getting better now. But it was a fun trip. :)

Had a couple of major fan moments at #lifeisbeautiful. This may be the biggest.

Just posting because I'm pleased with my hair right now. Before long it will become overlong and unruly and will need to be cut. Not yet.

Thanks for replying, and for the link. Alas, I'm going to be a ways away from all of them.

If it wasn't for school, I would love to join you in India though.
