note to self

I apologize for the bit of negative focus in the last post. I tend to be a "glass half empty" kind of girl which I do not like about myself. So for the steep price of $1200 our pictures might be recovered. We are going to pass on that offer and say goodbye to the lost images. But I feel like I have a better perspective on the whole thing. I can focus on what is lost or how many awesome pictures we still have and get to on this sunny afternoon one day this week.

Mark had his camera out and was capturing life unedited. I have to chuckle at myself as I protested these shots after he took them. So I took out my loose ponytail and puffy vest and looked more like this...

and this...

I think I looked better in the first couple of pictures....when i was just being myself and not trying so hard. Trying hard causes unnatural things!

So here is my note to self (you can listen in): Relax and be who you are. You have nothing to be ashamed of. Stop trying so hard! True beauty comes from being at a place of rest. So relax and be yourself!
