Fab-ruary Day Twenty-Eight: I Am Beautiful

I am the eyes of those who love me because, don't get me started, I loathe having my picture taken and very rarely think that I look good.

Anniversary Dinner February 2015
Someone once told me to get over it.  If anything ever happened to me, how would my family and friends feel if they didn't have photos to remember me?  They aren't going to think that I've got piggy little eyes, or that the size of my chin matters, or that I'm (as a comedian once put it) a little more fluffy than I should be.  They are going to remember that I loved them, that I was fun to be around, that I was kind and generous.  So, although I can find a dozen things I don't like about this photo above, I know that it's the photo that my husband took with his phone because he wanted to remember me on our special our anniversary evening.


  1. You are beautiful, Pam, inside and out (I LOVE this photo!). I'm so glad I can call you my friend.

  2. I think that's a great photo! But I'm the same way...hate to have my picture taken. I have very few pictures of me with my daughter, and I'm not sure I have any photos with my son when he was little as I always managed to be behind the camera. That really wasn't very smart.

    My husband's aunt died a few years ago, and they did a photo montage at the funeral. It took 3...THREE!...complete songs to accompany all the photos they had selected to include! I told my husband if he wanted to have a photo montage at my funeral, he would have to pic a VERY short song! :)

  3. Great photo. I think you look fab. I know how you feel I hate having my photo taken too. I feel silly because the people who see my photo are people who see me everyday, when I look my best and worst. However,I cannot get over my photo phobia. x
