as one could tell if they were to peruse this blog, the majority of pictures i have of myself are from this angle, this distance. i know this is the case for many a mama.
if i've got a picture of me these days, i can pretty much bet that it is taken by me at arm's length. i've become the chronicler of this family's life and though i feel sort of silly taking pictures of myself, i want it on record that "hey, i was there, too! 'member?"
taking the photos, telling the stories already helps me better remember the days gone by. i'm really grateful for that.
