1 of 52 photos of me

I was reading Nicole's blog the other day and she mentioned a photo challenge she saw on another blog. It was to post a photo of yourself once a week for 52 weeks because so often we as moms are taking the photos and not in them.

She couldn't remember where she saw it, but I did a search and found Carin at Forever in Blue Jeans who originated the challenge. Looks like she started at the beginning of the year but you're allowed to start and jump in at any time.

So here goes, photo number 1 of 52. The idea is to be included in photos with the family but I thought I'd start off with one of just me. The kids were in school and just hubby and I were home so I asked him to help out a bit.

Most of them turned out a bit fuzzy, not sure if it was just him or my new lens..........turns out there is a nick or scratch or something inside the lens that I didn't notice right away when I got it. I can't see that it shows up in photos but I think there may be more to what is wrong with the lens. But never fear, my mom got it at Amazon and she contacted them. They responded within 20 minutes and there is another one on the way!

So glad you have joined the challenge! Sorry to hear about the lens, good thing Amazon is on it! Thank hubby for taking the pic for us and if you want next time you can set the timer and have both of you in if the kids aren't around. Great to meet you!
