A Good Picture of Me?

It occurs to me that I haven’t put a picture of myself on this site yet. I look at other people’s sites and notice that they have nice pictures of themselves looking polished and professional. And I think to myself, I need to get a picture taken of me where I look good. Problem is I always manage to look goofy in photos. (Or maybe I just look goofy in real life and aren’t aware of it and people are too nice to say so)  So I went looking for a good pic of me tonight, and here’s what I came up with.

This was taken on the occasion of my first communion. I’m about 8 or 9 years old here. Check out that boy haircut. Mom cut my hair. It was the 1970s. Enough said.

Then there’s this gem. As you’re reading this post, it’s a wonder your computer doesn’t melt down from this picture.

Oh my holy heck, check out the hair. This was taken when I was in Jr. High, I think. That’s a home perm. The brand of the perm was “Kindness”. What a contradiction! I had fried curly hair for a year.

Finally we have this Kodak moment.

Not sure what’s going on here. Not sure I want to know what’s going on here. At least my hair looks relatively normal. This was taken just a couple years ago. My boyfriend (now husband) proposed to me about 2 weeks after this was taken. What was he thinking?

Sometime, I’ll get a good picture taken of myself, and I’ll share it with you. I promise.
