daily self portrait

Have you heard of this little trend that's going around the interwebs?
Okay, here's the sitch. So often it's the Mamas who are taking all the pictures of life-as-we-know-it and we get left out. When we look back over our year's worth of pictures, we are nowhere to be found.
I want to look back and see that I was an active part of my children's lives and for my children to see that one day too. I know that I am involved. But it'd be nice to see some proof.
So Sarah from The Sunday Spill started taking pictures every day of herself; with her kids, her husband, by herself and either holding the camera herself or using a timer. I was so inspired that I decided to join along for the ride.
I've included a link on my sidebar to my album of daily self portraits and you can follow along with me there!

It's interesting because I'm really hard on myself and how I look in pictures. So this is also a journey in me continuing to learn to love myself in a realistic way. Because at the end of the day, my kids don't care if I'm a size 6 or 16. They just want me to be present. To cuddle with them and read them stories. To bake them sweet things and play hide-and-go-seek.

So here we go!
