Punching my Life List in the FACE! YEAH!
#34: Have professional pics taken of me before I get too old. Just me.
I don’t mean head shots. I don’t mean the studio-posed wistful gazing toward the upper right corner of the misty brown border. Ew. And no. I don’t mean me standing next to the rest of my family. And I definitely don’t mean the candids/Instagrams/dorky self-portraits of me floating around out there. I mean real grown-up photographs of me, taken by a pro.
This may seem weird to some. But hell, I figure what better time than right now to do this? Before marriage, before children, just me. Happy. Because I want something tangible I can look back on in years to come – after the hair goes gray and the boobies aren’t so perky – and think, “Damn. I didn’t look half bad!”.
So imagine my luck when I was placed onto the same Camp Mighty team as the talented and gorgeous Kate of JetKat Photo. Not only is Kate a fellow UGA Alumni (Go Dawgs), but she read my life list and volunteered right away to help me knock out #34!
I adore Kate for taking the time out of an already packed weekend at Camp Mighty to help me. But after seeing the lovely, lovely shots she captured I could just smooch her!! (Apologies to Kate’s husband.) It’s difficult to put into words, but in a nutshell, she “got me” on film. I looked at them and thought, “Wow, that’s me. Yep, there’s my little bit of sass in that one. Oh, she made me look so pretty in this one. Man, I look happy.” They’re perfect and I love them so much.
Kate, I am so grateful. Thank you!
NOTE: As much as I wish I could share the photos here, that would kinda mess with my whole anonymous thing I’ve got going on. You’ll have to take my word for it… for now, anyway. 😉
Next up, I’m *this* close to finalizing my plans for the 500.00 grant from Go Mighty that I won from the election day giveaway! I can’t reveal what I’m thinking yet, but it’s going to be so cool. And fun. And GOOD. I’m so excited!!!
As for the rest of my Life List items, after I posted them here I’m just tickled by how many of my friends have come forward and said, “Hey, I can help you with #x.” I have the feeling a good number will be kicked in the butt this year. I promise to keep you updated on my kick-assery! YEAH.
