Today is Thursday and I took my picture. I do this almost every Thursday with a bunch of other people from Etsy. We all share this random ritual and have called it Self Portrait Thursday or SPT for short. The portraits we take can be quick like a snapshot or much more of a production. It is interesting to look back on these pictures and remember just what was going on and how I was feeling at the time. The images have really been a good challenge for many of us in the SPT group and definitely can be a way to evaluate yourself at the end of the day. It is really great to see how a portrait can reveal a little secret about the person hidden in their expression. My portrait today revealed that I'm developing a lady 'stache so I will not be sharing it due to my vanity. Justin and I have always cheated at SPT and took pictures of each other instead of ourselves. We figured it was just a technicality and besides, we need to break rules occasionally so we can maintain our badass image.

The picture above is my favorite SPT shot taken by Justin. It is strange how I hate seeing pictures of myself but I love having my picture taken. I ask him to do it all the time. He is such a good photographer and I love the attention.
