The first order of business was to find an awesome hairdresser in town and I found just that. Jackie of Jackie's Family Hair Salon was so helpful. In the past, I've seen some amazing haircuts on the happy customers coming out of her salon while I grabbed a coffee in the nearby coffeshop, so I knew it was the right place to go. Jackie has cut her patrons hair to be donated many times and knew just what to do. She also totally got my short hair needs and gave me a terrific cut, for which I'm grateful. Thank you Jackie for easing me into the transition and for helping me make my wish come true.
