In Shynes Mind

Am I 40 yet?!?!

Probably seems like a strange question. A lot of people seem to dread the big 4-0, but not I. I have big plans for that number.  You see, a lot of women may feel that they lose their looks as they get older. I, on the other hand, feel the exact opposite.  I was an ugly duckling for a long time, but not any more. I’m feeling that, at 38, I am the prettiest I’ve ever been. Take that childhood and teen years that made me feel all yucky! I’m thinking by the time I hit 40, I’ll be runway ready. Ok, maybe not runway ready since I’m still only 5’2″, but maybe some print. Here’s the first pic in my portfolio:

Boudoir shoot
First from a series with Holly Strebel Photography

So, first, much love for Holly of Holly Strebel Photography for getting this awesome shot.  Perhaps I should be a body part model.  These parts look pretty good by my eye! 🙂  There’s a particular shot that I can’t wait to see all prettied up and I can’t wait to share it!  Holly does families and newborn shots, but she’s expanding her portfolio and I was glad to help.

On the same day that I had the photo shoot, we also had our January Showcase at Boulder Spirals. All of the girls did so wonderfully! Such an awesome community to be a part of.  I was channeling the late, great, Etta James with my performance.

With my own very critical eye, I still see things to work on, but wow, even I will admit that I came a long way since the last performance.  I made a goal for myself to enter a competition this year because it would be a good experience. Perhaps, just perhaps, maybe I’ll even..gasp…do well!

That was my weekend in a nutshell.  Oh, except for Brewfest which was also fantastic. Can you say Vanilla Caramel Porter? Oh my goodness delicious! But oh my goodness must contain all of the calories in the world. That would be a special treat beer. I am not rocking hard into week THREE of P90X2 to be blowing it with beer, delicious beer.

Go out there and get yourself some Monday! Big things poppin!!
