light instead of dark.

I had yet another somewhat dark "introduce" post all prepared for today's self portrait challenge and decided to scrap it. I mean, come on, I'm not all gloom and doom. And as difficult as it is for me to toot my own horn I'm just gonna. So hold on to your hats...

I crack myself, and those who matter to me, right up.
I am gutsy and tenacious yet mostly gracious.
I can carry a tune in the car and the shower like nobody's business.
I love my knack for decorating a room and my sense of color.
I love to cook deliciously and decadently and each time things come out a bit different than the last time I made them.
I've got me some seriously luscious lips and thick dark wavy hair that shines.
My eyes turned from blue to green around the age of sixteen and I couldn't be more pleased.
I am a fiercely loyal friend and mama and lover.
I have an amazingly diverse, solid, supportive smattering of gut-level friends who are close and far, female and male, and lovely each and every one.

(Also, for your perusal - I was long overdue for a sidebar update and have rectified the situation.)

My eyes turned from blue to green too... but I was a bit younger.... I hope my daughter keeps her blue eyes though.
You portrait is eye catching, I found myself staring at it like it would come into focus...

I love the photo, and the horn tooting. You have good things to toot about.

Love the dramatic hand gesture!

You look like you are focusing an imaginary camera with your hand. I often find I am redirecting the focus of my blog posts from dark towards the light.
