Laugh at me, with me

*Deep exhale* "I can do this" is my mantra to myself as I take the long walk from my bedroom. . .

To my computer?  Why is this so hard? You tell me cause I don't get it.  I am just trying to be myself but it is harder than you would think.  I don't know what it is. . . I mean it should come natural since you know it's well, me.  But somehow nope.

It is like when I first met my in laws.  My husband and I were really close friends for years, three years to be exact, but we went from dating to married in less then 10 months!  I know we are a bit crazy.  So when I finally got to meet my now in laws I was really worried, I mean I knew, being me, that I wanted to marry Chris before he even asked me to date him, so in my mind when I met his parents I was meeting my parents to be.  I knew that being myself was the only option but all the sudden I felt like Jack from 30 Rock  "could I get two coffee cups?"  All the sudden the simple things like walking and talking seemed a bit more complicated than a Rubik's Cube!

I feel that way now.  I look over those I idolize in my field the Katelyn James's, the Jasmine Star's... they seem to not only be completely at ease with being themselves they are also brilliantly hilarious all the time.  I look over their posts and tweets looking for the secret.  I sit there with a blinking empty cursor waiting to type something but all that comes to mind is bananas.  Why bananas?  Your guess is as good as mine.

So I say to you world: laugh at the hilarity of me not being able to be me cause that's what I do.

1. Love

This photo needs a little description.  These flowers are the first flowers Chris ever gave me keeping me in mind all the things that make me crazy... like the fact I am super pragmatic.  At the time he worked events and these were left over from a wedding he had worked before we met up for a late night date.

  1. Beautiful set - but ya know what...be yourself and find your own voice. I know what you mean because I've been there before, but when I just decided to be me, the rest followed.

    1. Thanks, I think I am most proud of that because I did it. I cut out the paper and made it into that as a gift for my father in law who is in love with his fifth wheel.

  8. Such beautiful shots. I love them. I agree with you about being funny. I have no idea how to do it. I can't be myself for some reason and be funny.
