I know I say this every year, BUT… where did the year go and where do I start? I'm amazed how much support I have had this year! ALL my clients, friends and most of all, my parents! Whatever decision (good or bad!) my mom & dad have always backed me up or picked up my broken pieces! You two have NO idea how much I respect you. I don't know how you guys have done it all these years, but I'm so lucky to have you! My best friend, Casey, bends over backwards for me. She's the true meaning of a best friend. My boyfriend, Mike, has been my rock...I don't know how he does it. Most of all, my two precious little ones! They are my whole life, the reason to keep going. I love those two little faces more than life itself! Thanks so much for all the love and support you all have given to me, my family, & Extreme Salon! I can't wait to see you all in 2013! ~Jenn Farrell

Faith &Hope

“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David) to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” - Luke 2:1-7 (K.J.V.)
