Challenge Day 1: Self-Portrait

 

 

Today’s topic took a lot of thinking, a little planning, and was a lot of fun to execute! I had two strong ideas for this shot, one could have been taken indoors, but this one had to be outside. With all of the rainy/stormy days we’ve had lately, I wanted to wait until I woke up this morning to make a decision. I was so happy to see sunny skies when I opened my curtains!

I drove to a nearby party supply store to pick up the giant balloon, only had a slight bit of trouble stuffing it into the back of my little mommy Jeep, and {patiently} waited until the munchkin went down for her afternoon nap to head outside.

I spent a good 15 minutes in the backyard jumping around like a goof while hanging onto a giant yellow balloon. And I’m pretty sure that if our neighbors didn’t already think I’m nuts, they most certainly do now!:)

I am starting a bit late because I just found this. I do not like pictures of myself so my self portrait is more of a little bit of a story of who I am. It includes my hand, my wedding ring, my crooked pinky finger and the steering wheel of my van… I love my van!

I just found this challenge a few days ago, so I’m a little behind but here is my self portrait. I do not like pictures of myself so I decided to show something that contained a little bit of a story of who I am, instead.
