Here I am

Today I was informed that I don't put any pictures of myself on my blog and that I especially don't put any dorky pictures of me on it. Go figure. It's my blog. I'm usually taking all the pictures so I don't have that many to choose from. I am terrible at "selfies" and only occasionally do I use the self timer feature on my camera. I scrolled through my picture catalog for 2013 and tried to find all the single pictures of me that I could share with you. I managed to come up with a few.

 August 31 - helping Brian make salsa. That is an entire bowl of onions that I chopped, along with tons of cloves of garlic. Not one tear was shed during this whole procedure. Usually I try to be out of the house when Brian is making salsa. My eyes can't take the pain of that smell!
 August 18 - Leaving the kiva at Defiance House in Lake Powell. Everyone posed for one of these pictures. I'm not sure what I'll do with all of them. This one would not have made the cut for my yearbook without this blog post.
 August 18 - Dinner on the houseboat at Lake Powell. We needed to cut an onion and I suddenly remembered that I had read somewhere about using goggles when you slice onions. We had some swim goggle on hand and I tried it. Wonder of wonders, it really worked. I felt like an absolute dork and couldn't quit laughing but hey what's a little dorkiness between friends?
August 19 - our last night at Powell. Brian took a bunch of pictures while I skied so I have a few to choose from. I believe I mentioned before how amazingly perfect this ski was. What a phenomenal way to end a trip!
 July 4 - mountain biking in Park City. Super fun ride!
 May 28 - Happy birthday to me!
Feb 28 - picture of my 2012 yearbook. Such an accomplishment. I'm quite pleased with myself each time I finish one of these books. I can't tell you the joy it brings me to look at these and see what my family has done all year. It goes by so quickly, I'm grateful to have these books to remind me of how blessed I am.

So that is it. That is all the single pictures of me so far this year. I have a some more of me with someone else. Usually that someone else is Brian or Brian & the girls. I just now realized I have zero pictures of me in the studio. I'll have to remedy that in the next couple months.
