Pictures can be so decieving...


I updated my cut and color a couple of weeks ago, and then took some photos of myself. I wish I could get glamour shots from Jen's photographer, he made her look so fabulous.(Which she is) Anyway, I have had so many comments from people that say, "Wow, you look so young", just like High School. I about fell out of my chair, what a load of crock! Like I said pictures can be so deceiving. Although I do not mind the compliments. Unfortunately when I look in the mirror, I see all the blossoming wrinkles, the well earned laugh lines and the encroaching crows feet. I do admit though; I have more confidence and self esteem than I ever did in High
School, so that has to account for something. Oh the wisdom of many, many years.
Approaching middle age is so frustrating, because I have to act like an adult, yet I still feel so young inside. It is about killing me that Jalyssa is graduating and ready to head off to college. I still remember college so clearly, like it was yesterday. Oh well, life marches on and unfortunately it keeps marching across my lovely face.

In yoga we're taught that we are as young as our spine... Just think, less kids means more "honeymoon" time for you and Kelly!! You are so beautiful! As for the glamour shots, I wish I could do them for you!
