This December, my baby sister graduated with an AA from the Cosmetology program at Central New Mexico Community College. It was two long years of dying her hair every color imaginable, giving pedicures to dudes whose feet closely resemble those of a Hobbit, and making-over some seriously freaky mannequin heads.
I couldn’t be more proud of her. It has been an incredible experience watching her work so hard for something and seeing her dreams take flight. As a kid she would give our Dad “haircuts”, which usually included accidentally taking off a sideburn with his electric shaver. She would “borrow” makeup from my mother and just outright steal mine. Now, she has more nail polish than Sephora, her own make up stash, and your sideburns couldn’t be safer.
I am so excited for you, Stevie. I know 2013 will be a great year for you and I can’t wait to see what you accomplish next.
Love you, Kiddo.
