Shutter Click & Chat 12/28


Awesome

Originally, this week's picture was leaning towards a sunset or the beauty of the desert skyline, and then things changed. Following the incident with my daughter, some internal struggles, and the deluge of image-based, superficial "New You" resolutions I've heard and read these past few weeks, I decided it would be about me, and you, and everyone else. We are all awesome in our own right.

My mom sent this photo to me along with some other early childhood photos. I chose this one because it wasn't one of my better playground years. I showed it to Yael, who after overcoming her initial disbelief, appeared comforted- giddy even, at the knowledge that her mother, 25 years ago with overjet malocclusion and diastema or, 25 lbs and a few short years ago was no less awesome than I am today. And, neither is she, nor anyone else. Now, show me your awesome.

Hey girlie-

I'm so digging the fro. I try rocking one but yours was just fierce. All even and ish!! I loved that your daughter got a kick out of seeing you in all your 70's fly glory.

I often forget how old I am until I stumble across one of those pictures. Thanks for sharing
