I'm Not Like That

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I have the need to explain something.....

I've been doing what I do a lot of.....surfing other people's blogs. Don't you just love reading their stories and looking at all the cute graphics? But there's one thing I notice that they all have in common....they look like real nice, easy-going people.

Now we come to the explaining part of this post. My photo looks so...how do I say this? Stuffy!!
There I am in a turtleneck sweater and jacket...sitting up straight as a board. Some might say I look uptight and a little self-righteous, but that's really not "me" at all.

The photo was taken for a political campaign, to be used on political signs and fliers. So that's the best picture I have and the one I'm stuck with... for now.

Who am I really? Wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend. Very easy going, down to earth, friendly, happy, creative, and much more.

So there...I've confessed and feel much better!!

Blessings to all.

First, it's a lovely picture! I like a little formality, and I believe there is a twinkle in your eye there, too. And don't worry, your wonderful posts show your easygoing, happy & creative side! Very welcoming, so continue with happy blogging!

I agree with Joanne - your personality comes through in what you write. Personally, I really like your picture!

The ID photo only gives part of the picture. The others (especially the one with you riding the bike) with family, etc. give some of the rest of the story. :)

I think your blog tells so much more about who you are than that one picture. I see you as a warm, gentle person who loves the things of home and family. That is the picture I have of you!

Goodness! Uptight and self-righteous are the last things I've thought about you. Hugs!

Well a pictures is just that, not who you are really. I don't know how to put a picture on my blog. Need somebody nice to help me do a couple of things. Love your blog.
