I cannot believe I am doing this!
So, ok, Stephanie at Adventures in Babywearing invited me over to participate in her new contest: Bloggers Without Makeup. At first I thought, "heck, no!" but then I thought about how liberating it was just to make a self-portrait collage of me and put it up to share with the world, so I thought maybe this would feel even better. Lord knows I need better self-confidence and this is just the start of proving that I have it in me, right?! So . . . here ya go . . . its me, Val . . . sans makeup!
For those of you who know me well, you know that I will not step foot out my front or back door without wearing makeup. Ever. Ok, I take that back. Unless I'm in Hawaii and am getting a nice pretty tan on my face, then I might go without. (right, Chel?!) So know this was a huuuuuuge thing for me, but now that I've done it, I feel pretty dang good about myself suddenly. And I need that before my 26-people wedding party and 400-guest wedding that I will be shooting tomorrow. (Positive vibes and prayers for Val, please!)
Those above were taken this morning and this one below was taken while in Chicago over the weekend.
