Corner View

This week's subject is the unveiling...We were waiting for the ice cream truck last week when my husband snapped this photo. It pretty much sums me up. We live very casually, which you can see in my lovely attire (note my seven-year-old Carhartts). I tend toward forgetting basics like putting lotion (or olive oil -thanks Nichole!) on my skin (especially because that routine precedes my morning coffee), hence the dry knees in this photo (so, so typical). I run cold, so I'm always looking for a warm top (this is one of my ten or so fleeces... some are more feminine than this). I usually have a hat on outside to protect my oh-so-rapidly aging skin (and sunscreen... it's such a harsh climate for skin here, the sun is so strong and the air is so dry). Finally, right now I am so happily mom to this little guy. For example, I will drop everything to meet the ice cream truck! And there you have it!
