Your hair is beautiful! And so are you! Welcome to the challengeOkay, I know I'm a little late to the game in joining this thread, but it looks fun I've actually been growing my hair out since about April 2011, when I cut it to just above shoulder length.

I think I'm currently about BSL, or almost, in the very back; I get it trimmed every 10-12 weeks to help keep my layers/shape looking good while I'm growing it out. My goal is for the longest length to be between MBL and WL, so that from the front I still have a lot of longer layers.
