reverb10: your picture here.

December 25: Photo – a present to yourself.
Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where and what it best reveals about you.


I just realized that it took me a while to find a good picture of myself from this past year.

I love taking pictures. But in between my iPhone and my camera, I’m usually the one taking pictures. Not so much the one in them. So I took to Facebook to see what little I managed to capture this year (and post) and found this forgotten little gem:

I love this picture. And I had almost forgotten about it. This was taken in February, when I flew to Chicago on a whim for a job interview. It was in that moment, even in the dead of winter, that I knew I had to come back. I was staying with Jordan during that trip and we managed to take a trip to Sweet Mandy B’s with Lauren and Daphne for cupcakes and coffee. At the time, I had not seen all three of them since we had graduated from college the year before. It was a lovely little reunion and it makes me realize how much harder I need to try and keep in touch with people I miss.

I feel like the main thing this photo probably reveals is my consistent love of cupcakes (haha no, but really) and honestly, the beginning of my definite plans to move back.
