Yesterday I gushed about how someone at my husband’s birthday party last weekend thought I had not yet reached the 40 milestone. Along with the gush was a “photoshopped” picture of myself taken two months ago.
I used this image because:
- I like it
- I still had my long hair
- My long hair hadn’t yet gotten so damaged it had to be cut off
- I wanted to simulate how I may have looked in the dim mood lighting of the party where alcohol was served. I did so by creating a soft blur with Adobe Photoshop, thereby eliminating all that yucky stuff that shows up in bright light/flash photography.
Inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Bossy, who isn’t afraid to display less-than-perfect pictures of herself, particularly when it comes to the state of her hair, I have decided to show the Internets a different view of the same subject. A view that will make it clear I am over the 40 fence. While it pains me to post this, I am doing so because:
- Guess how many chins!
- School called. Lunch lady position available.
