But, I've been inspired by so many fun and creative self-portraits, and I knew that I'd be sad if I didn't get over myself and do it. My plan of attack was to think of someplace that'd be a nice setting where I'm totally and completely comfortable. Some place that fits in with my personality and my life. This is what I came up with:
One of my happy places, something that's been a continuous and consistent part of my life since I was 7 years old. A wonderful, soothing, blessing on days when I am stressed and emotional-- my piano. Also, I would just like to mention that the dress I happened to be wearing is one of my favorites too, because it was bought and worn for a certain someone's amazing and joyful-family-memory-filled wedding.
So there you go. I've officially been exposed, let the chips fall where they may. :)
