wordful wednesday - learning to love the wrinkles

on sunday night i went to my scrapmates dessert evening. kris was our host. she's our email [scrapmates] group 'leader'. she poses thoughtful questions each day, sends great links, funny stories and organises lots of fun activities.

she's a giving gal.

she also takes a lot of photos. a LOT. more than me! WAY more than me!

kris has a fixed 50 lens on her SLR - i have decided that this is what i want from santa mr scrappy for christmas this year!

these are two pics kris took of me on sunday night


when i opened up my email and saw them, i had a revelation

i'm learning to love my crows feet
my smile lines
my memories made lines
my wrinkly proof of happiness
the lines on the face of a 46 and 3/4 year old woman

i may not be as fresh faced as these two young gals
(and BOY is there any other word to describe this shot!)
and that's ok

just thought i'd share that with you


for more wordful wednesday, visit angie over @ seven clown circus

I'll second that. I've learned that everything I've been through, good or bad, makes me what I am today. We better enjoy it!

Both photos of you are great, but that top one is fantastic! And look at that stunner Katelyn- she looks very different out of her Brumbys uniform!

Those are awesome photos! I think I like the top one just a little bit more (because of the background). And your girls are gorgeous! I haven't accepted my crow's feet yet, but they sure have accepted me!

So if I add that lens to my camera, it will make me look gor-jus, no?!
