Me in February

I almost didn't post my monthly self-portrait.  I kind of wasn't in the mood.  I thought:  "No one is going to remember your little monthly self-portrait pledge."  That didn't seem to matter.  I remember early January and really wanting to take monthly self-portraits.  So, thanks to an extra day this month, I present "Me in February."

Perhaps it should also be entitled "Me at 41" since I celebrated my birthday earlier this month.  At 41, this is the longest my hair has been since I was 4 years old.  Part of me thinks, "At 41, aren't I suppose to be going with a more mature, less bohemian hair style?"  The other part of me can't stop playing with my hair.  I love my long hair and have become very attached to it.  With regards to hair, my mantra used to be, "It's only hair. It will always grow back."  Not so much anymore.

No scarf this time.  I was tempted to run inside and wrap a scarf around my neck.  Not so you would think me oh-so-chic.  More as I hiding spot.

Any-hoo, hopefully the March self-portrait will have a little more green in the background.


  1. good for you...i'm almost always the one that's taking the photos and find myself not in many. i need to adopt your idea and take at least one a month. :-)

  2. Hi Tara! Good to see you:) You know what's interesting--my hair was the longest it's ever been at 41. It made me happy. You wear it well, so go for it. With enough hair, who needs a scarf? No really, scarves are great anyway. Also, Happy Birthday! You wear 41 well too.

  3. february looks cold. i'm growing my hair out too. i bet when i'm 41 it'll be longer than it's ever been in my whole life!

  4. i am with you
    i love long hair
    happy belated birthday
