I Heart Faces - Birthday Celebration

Would you believe it's been a year since I Heart Faces started? Year, me neither.

I've totally enjoyed being a part of the I Heart Faces community this past year. The wonderful contributors and participants have all been a source of knowledge, inspiration, and encouragement. But the best part has to be all the sweet friends I've made. I heart friends.

The theme for this special birthday week is "Best Face Photo" -- which means no pressure, particularly for decision-challenged people like myself. Luckily (or unluckily depending on how you look at it), the picture has to be one taken recently. I took this one today, so that's about as recent as you can get. And honestly, I'd like to try again tomorrow for a better shot with better lighting. But it's freezing outside, and I prefer to stay warm. And although part of me is screaming: Get out of the house! Run errands! Shop! Go to Target and Chick-fil-a! The other part of me is yelling equally loudly: Stay under the blankets! Turn on the space heater! Drink large quantities of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream! Guess which part wins?

That said, here's my entry this week. And thanks to all the talented photographers and friends I have come to know and love this past year!

I can only look at her in small doses because she is so delicious. Oh. my. Goodness. Gracious. Sakes. Alive.
