Living Arrows 2017 – 25/52

A few weeks ago I shared a photo of Nerys on a swing, with her hair blowing out behind her, for my living arrows post.

I wrote at the time how her hair seems to be such a part of who she is.  It so often seems a little on the wild side, and probably could do with a trim to neaten it up, but I can’t bring myself to do anything other then trim her fringe at the moment.

Sometimes she will sit still in front of me long enough for me to put it in a ponytail for her, or pigtails now and then.  And she does like sitting and putting various clips and headbands on herself.  But it doesn’t tend to last that long before she’s got it all loose and free again.

For this week’s living arrows post I wanted to share two photos of her that demonstrate how different she looks with her hair free and with it tied back.  The photos were taken about an hour apart.


I think she looks so sweet with her ponytail and headband.

But that second picture, with the mussed up do and the sparkle in her eyes?  That’s my Nerys!

    I think you can see that she is a real little personality – she looks adorable in both photos!

    Ah she is adorable. My Alice hated having her hair up until just before her 4th birthday. Even now she always chooses to have it down. x #LivingArrows

      It’s funny isn’t it, how they know their own minds so well and know exactly what they do and don’t want! x

    I like the wilder look! Neat and tidy is good, but as you say, the other is Nerys.

      It does suit her better doesn’t it! x

    Oh wow, having her hair all tied up really changes her doesn’t it? Such a massive contrast! x

    She looks lovely in both pictures but you can definitely see more character in the second one, and how lovely to capture them both side by side 🙂 #LivingArrows

    Oh she’s so cute! I think she looks beautiful in both photos, but I can see what you mean about the bottom one, she does seem to have more sparkle. #LivingArrows xx
