This year, I am determined to put myself more into my layouts. When I look at the many albums on my shelves I am visibly absent from almost all of them. I need to get past the way I look and forget about how much I really don't like myself and remember that it is important the boys have a record of my life with them. I want them to remember me for more than just that person who cooked their meals, washed their clothes, drove them all over the country-side to various sporting activities and sat beside them while they did their homework. I want them to remember me for doing stuff with them, not just for them. This is not going to be easy as I really hate having my photo taken, but I am definitely going to try.
While this photo isn't about the boys as such, it is about a time when we were all together - going out to celebrate my birthday earlier this month. Only Lachie and I are in the photo but I will remember the laughing and joking from everyone in the car as I was trying to take a selfie while Tony was driving us to town, and hitting EVERY bump along the way, not to mention Lachie doing his best to photo-bomb my selfie.And some close-ups:
Thanks for stopping by.
