Me at Almost 45

I'll turn 45 tomorrow and what better way to remember this time than with self portraits.

I've been participating in Urban Muser's {in the Picture} challenge, and this month's optional theme was "big world, tiny you", so I had fun incorporating that theme into a couple of my selfies this month.

Just me, the barn cat, a horse and a wide open field on a perfect spring day.
Saturday Afternoon

One Wednesday morning. I love this time of year, as the sun rises early and fills our bathroom with light.
Wednesday Morning

Another reason I love this time of year - I'm a morning runner, and I really enjoy watching the sun rise while pounding the pavement. I'm still only able to run one to two miles, but I'll take it for now.

It wouldn't be the prairie without some wind.

Finally, a selfie I took back in April - I was a little sad and stressed out that month. But that's life and it goes on.

Wind on the prairie.... oh gosh, how well I remember. Seemed like it never went away. WHooosh.

Happy Birthday Shirley! Amazing shots as usual - I still can't believe they were taken with your iPhone...says the Droid girl. ;) I'm sorry you were sad and stressed last month. I hope there aren't too many months like that for you in the future - but you are right, you just have to move on... xo God bless you!
