Self Portrait Challenge - resolution.


This month's theme over at Self Portrait Challenge is resolutions and we were wished luck on how to interpret our own personal resolutions in photo form. Sounds pretty hard unless you only made one and it was the following...

1) To Be Happy.

I took this photo on Christmas day. My extended family were all sitting in front of the tv watching some teen movie and dozing on and off. I was going stir crazy. I took my camera out into the cold on a walk. While wearing a polka dotted peasant top, jeans, boots, my brother-in-law's beanie and my brand new tuu-tuu. I say, aqua tulle with red frills? I have always wanted one and my girl Mary indulged me as my gift this year. Damn good start to my resolution if you ask me...and a closer look at my skirt of happiness here...

indeed.

That is a GREAT resolution!!! And I have been going back and forth on wanting a tutu for myself. I may have to get one. I link to a lady who makes the best tutus in my dress-up section and she says she will make one in my size. I'm just not so sure. But you look precious!!

I loved this post!!

Happy new year!

PERFECT! I think dressing the part of happiness is always a great way to inspire yourself.
I have taken to wearing my collection of aprons around, out and about, not just in the kitchen. After all shouldn't everyone get to see this awesome collection I got going?
I was asked the other day if I had forgotten to take it off or if it was part of my get-up, I responded, "get-up" they smiled and said they liked it, it made them smile... this is what is all about...
wearing the tu-tu or the apron around because it makes you FEEL GOOD!

Happy 2007 LeS! here is to a year of Smiles.
