Me In August 2007

Here is a picture I took of myself earlier this month. I figured I needed a new photo on my blog and there was a challenge on the Creative Mom Podcast to take a portrait of ourselves by holding the camera in one hand and snapping the photo.

It was a spur of the moment thing. Not much makeup, hair "as is", etc. This is the real me, summer style, with sun-bleached hair. I took it the evening of my older son's tenth birthday, on a whim when I went to grab the camera out of my car. So here I am, mother of a double-digit child, the 40 year old me.

In case you noticed a change, last month I decided my hair style was not flattering so cut off three inches. I am back to short hair after a bunch of years with longer hair.

It's a really good picture. And you're not so old yet. I am in the latter half of my forties with a child in her early twenties.
I don't believe I am old enough to have such a child. But I do!

Anyway, you look great! Some people just don't need make-up and look beautiful naturally!

Wow Elisheva, I am flattered. Thanks so much for the compliment!

Great picture!
It captures your upbeat, mischievous and joyful personality.
No make-up necessary!

Thanks Judy. I'd like to be more upbeat and joyful instead of so serious. I'm working on it. LOL.
