Yay!

so I found my camera bag (thank god) in the laundry basket.  I knew that I needed to take a picture of myself which is certainly not something I like to do.  Let's just say that childbirth hasn't been kind to me!  I have a double chin like you wouldn't believe........even when I was skinny I had a bit of a double chin going on.  If I could get rid of that I'd be a happy girl!  I've slowly been losing some weight and Dan bought a trainer for the bike so we could use it indoors since I love riding my bike.  I actually love working out, but I usually prefer to work out at a gym.  Needless to say I haven't had a gym membership since living in Buffalo and that was like 3 years ago.  Anyways......we booked our cabin for Bar Harbor, ME and one thing that we love to do there is ride our bikes on the carriage roads.  There are quite a few large hills that I know will be tough for me, but I'd at least like to get a head start with this bike trainer, and maybe in the process say goodbye to a little bit of my double chin.  
So, I had to take a picture for my photography business.  I thought that it'd be a good idea to have a picture of myself in the About Me section rather than a pic of Lillian.  So here it goes (this is totally like ripping a band-aid off for me.......sooooo painful to share these!!!).......

Hei, I just wanted to tell you that you look beautiful! NO reason to feel bad when you have hair like this!!!
And besides that, I like the thought that the signs of childbirth are an honor - well, not that I´d have a choice after four :-)

Ah, and thanks for the denim-freebie - I love those bright colours!
