Redhead Days 2015~ I'm finally here! (plus pull-through braid)

Hello from Holland,

What an amazing two days in Breda for the Redhead Days! I got to meet friends and make many new ones. How special to be a part of this event that I have dreamed of going to for years <3 During the closing ceremony, the Burgomaster introduced me and asked me to join him on the balcony. Everyone was so kind and very excited that I travelled practically around the world to come to Breda for the Redhead Days. The group photo was as fun as it looks in the pictures, and afterwards different redhead friends would ask if we could take a picture together. I think it was quite a surprise to see hair as long as mine, and I got to share about my blog and favorite tips for growing long hair~ use lots of conditioner and eat a spoonful of peanut butter every day :-)
     Here are pictures from Saturday and Sunday, and I will post more in another thread. There are much too many for just one post!

The big photo shoot in the park, which broke the world record for the number of redheads in a single picture

  2. Here here, I totally agree with this lady's comment Andrea. The pics are amazing and I watched the interview on the link you posted, thanks for that. Your hair is so beautiful and amazing as are you, travelling all that way on your own? You totally deserve all the positive attention as well as comments. In very glad you had such a wonderful time. Will you be going back next year? Is it an annual event in Holland?

    I'm certain hat your an inspiration to many especially that little girl in your pics and especially now, to even more people now that they've witnessed your beautiful long braid on TV all around the country and world. I hope you have a safe trip back to Micronesia & I look forward to your next YouTube video as well as posts. God bless you gorgeous angel 😀😍

    1. Hi Adrian, thank you so much for your kind reply to this post. I had a wonderful time! I'm sorry for my late response, I only just got back home today so I have much that I need to catch up on. I got to visit London and Paris during my trip! How exciting, especially London~ while Scotland was my favorite "countryside" London was definitely my favorite city :-)
