Once again, I ended up waiting until the last day of February to take this months self portrait. Noticing a trend? This project has become the hardest thing on my to do list.
We’ve enjoyed such a nice winter so far this year in Chicago, but this week has been full of snow, wind, and cold temperatures. I thought I would run outside for a few minutes and take a picture in this crazy weather. Less than ten minutes later I came home with a red nose, ears, and fingers. Despite that, I’m happy that I captured a picture what life is like in these winter months: hats, too many layers, and wind constantly in my hair.
February came and went so quickly. Is it really going to be March tomorrow? I am going to start adding a list of things I’m proud of accomplishing each month to every self portrait post. It’s mainly for me, so feel free to stop reading. I could easily make a list of all the things I didn’t do, like ordering in way too much and cooking way too little, but I want to encourage positive not negative affirmations.
This month I:
-cleaned and organized our closet, and even gave a few pieces of clothing away
-helped throw a baby shower for a friend
-took more personal photographs
-accepted help from a friend
-submitted a wedding for blog publication (and it was accepted! can’t wait to show y’all:)
-actually watched an entire movie without pausing
-finished all client work
-helped my sister find bridesmaids dresses
-I might not have cooked much, but I did cook a yummy taco salad that we liked so much I ended up making it twice!
-managed to grow a couple flowers
What are you proud of accomplishing this past month?
Hope you’re staying warm this Thursday!
