Self Portrait Sunday on Monday

I really used to look forward to posting my Self Portrait Sunday but after over 2 months of it and no hangers on, wasn't as fanatical about getting my post up. I guess I just lost steam.

Until, Lorie from The Shewbridges of Celebration, Fl started playing along. She brought new life into my very lonely meme. Thanks Lorie.

I got to speak to Lorie the other day on the phone and she is as nice as she comes across in her posts and her smiling pictures. Isn't it weird how women who have never actually spoken can talk about almost anything? I love the wonderful qualities of female relationships. Men have no idea the uniqueness that surrounds women. We are open hearted and let others in. We care deeply about people we have never met or sometimes have never even talked to.

Thanks to Lorie, I am putting up a picture of me and one of my bestest friends. She is caring, friendly, funny, crazy, sensitive, warm, loving, and silly. Please meet my friend Clarissa. She is always excited for me when something good happens and always listens when I need an ear. I have a lot of female friends who fall into the same category but there is something with Clarissa and I that is more than just friendship. We are like family and that is a rare find.

This is one of my favorite friend photos. I have a lot of photos with my girlfriends but they are all so staged. I think it shows how close and silly we are.

Let's discuss the reason I started Self Portrait Sunday. You look through your photo albums or computer folders and see very few photos of yourself. Maybe it is because, like me, you are usually behind the camera. Or maybe, it's because you never feel you look good in photos so you tell everyone, "don't take any of me."

Join me, putting up your self portrait shots every Sunday. There is only one rule. Link back to me so I can come visit you. I would really love seeing some participants so come and play.
