I've never taken a selfie of just myself until this week. I've never made a picture of just me, alone, my profile picture on Facebook. I don't think it came from a place of insecurity... but I have noticed one of my eyes is noticeably bigger than the other. Perhaps I was avoiding filling your computer screen with my disproportionate eyes. Then I started this project, and I had to get over it. That's also good for me because I plan on practicing my selfie skills with the kids, and I'd like to have more pictures of me with them.
Lastly, I think I need to take selfies to get a real view of how I present myself every day. Like those brief glimpses in the bathroom mirror, they allow me to see what others see every day. Do I look happy? Do I look pulled together? I think it will be easier to evaluate if I take pictures.
So, today was my first real attempt at taking selfies in the Target dressing room. Not as easy as it looks! I was so consumed with figuring out angles that I'm not sure I paid much attention to the clothes, and I look charmingly perplexed in almost every shot.
But I did it.
And now, to be brave since I clearly have to share pictures to have this blog, here are some outtakes from my first "photo shoot" :)
In case you're wondering, I bought:
And now that I'm looking at my outtakes, I wish I'd also brought home:
I'm so grateful to have you here with me. I LOVE being a mom, but I'm trying to still be "me" while being a mom, & this blog has been a tool for me to figure that out. Hopefully it's that for you, as well. I look forward to hearing from you so that I can make this blog meaningful for you. Thanks for being here!
