I admit it. I’m somewhat vain. I mean, why else would I post these pictures of myself? I like to be told I look “great”. I hate it when people tell me I look like crap. If you think so, hold your tongue. So, when I have Jeff take some pictures to show of my new hair cut (which I’m in love with) and for a project I’m working on, I only have slight qualms about posting them for your opinion. When I was deciding what to do, I had a few thoughts: I could print the pictures and take them around to all of my local friends for their opinion. Or, I could drag all my friends over to my house to look at them on my computer. Or I could email them and clog up their inbox. Or, I could post them here and get YOUR feedback. Without any extra effort on my part. It seems like a no-brainer, right? Except the fact that I’m somewhat vain is exposed. Let me just say this……I love getting dressed up and going somewhere and feeling like I can slip anonymously into old shoes and no one who didn’t know me would ever guess that I’m the mother of 5 kids. There. I said it.
Jeff took the pictures, I played around with them on Picasa. Neither of us can pick a favorite for a project I’m doing which includes my whole family. (I’m going to post individual pictures for each of them and ask your opinion over the next little while). Want to weigh in? Obviously I want a picture where I look decent, but I’ve played with the pictures enough that I don’t know which one is most appealing at first glance. For whatever reason.
