Task 8:

Create a self portrait, draw or photograph yourself. What do you see?

I was reading about celebrities who look beautiful all natural, so I decided to post a photo of me sans makeup!

I love this picture. I look very clean. I had just washed my face of all make up and put on the gobs of lotions, eye creams, sunscreen, etc that I use to keep my face looking lovely. I just felt soft.

In answer to this tasks question: What do I see?
I see someone who looks very much like both of her parents. Someone who has beautiful white skin (even if she sometimes wishes she could tan). Someone who has been blessed with a proportionate face. I think this person looks kind and sweet. I think this person has strengths she does not even know about, and fears she has yet to face. I think this person is beautiful!


  1. I agree with everything said about this girl! She is beautiful.

  2. This is seriously inspirational. People are beautiful in their simplest forms. It makes them easier to see. You just happen to be one of those people that makes simple, shine. There is a lot of intrigue in those eyes and sweetness in whatever is on your mind. This picture and your pure recognition of your own beauty makes me think of Audrey Hepburn's quote:

    “For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
    For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
    For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
    For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
    For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone”

    You've got this down.

  3. Jon couldn't post online, so he sent me this sweet IM & asked me to post it:
    "I think you look gorgeous! You have a beauty that is incomparable. But one thing that you have to remember is that beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. Your inner beauty shines through as if all illuminating light began in you and shines forth to the world, gracing our skin with you happiness and our souls with your presence."

  4. I love all of your comments and hope you know I think the same about each of you! You all have such amazing beautiful spirits, which is more than just your physical grace.

  5. I think this person is beautiful too! Not just cause of looks but you are a great and inspirational person!! Thanks for being so great and thanks for the wonderful post!
