5 years of happiness!

It's been just over 5 years since I accepted my alopecia and stopped hiding beneath a wig. In that time I've met and married my gorgeous husband, had our 3rd child, completed post grad qualification in HR, been promoted and had so many memorable experiences.

Hehe, I'm so excited - I'm getting married! The date is set for 6th August 2011 and I can't wait.

Out & Proud

As of Wednesday last week I have ditched the wig and am wearing my bald head with pride. So far the response has been great. All was revealled at work fo the first time on Monday and everyone couldn't believe it but then said how much better and more confident I look!
