Twelve years ago today I met my husband in person for the first time. We started chatting online, via Match.com. Today we are still crazy in love, he’s my best friend and when we are together it is non-stop laughter. It’s funny how things work out. Happy Anniversary to us!

“…..you’re the one, you make bath time lots of fun.”

 

Probably the most un-relaxing bath I have ever taken. Not sure I’ll be dangling my camera a half inch above water again any time soon.  Geez! The things you do for a photo!

My personal goal for this 52 week project is to take a self-portrait every week (anytime between Monday and Sunday), as long as I post it by the end of the day on Sunday I’ll keep to my own schedule and stay on track. Well…I took this photo in bed this morning, nothing like waiting until last minute, eh? I kind of forgot that I had to take one, woke up with zero ideas.  I’m happy I got it done though, for a minute there I thought fuck it, this will be the week I fall behind, not feeling very inspired lately.  I’m just happy that I could stay in bed and not bother with makeup to take it. Cheers to faceless portraits, and sleeping in Sunday mornings! Better luck next week.

A few years ago someone shared this song with me, ‘Desire by Meg Myers’. I’ve been holding onto it and finally felt inspired to shoot an image to go with it.  I’m a big fan of songs with dirty lyrics and interesting videos. Enjoy!

Self-portrait 15/52

 

This past Wednesday one of my little girls turned 6 years old.  She had a list of things we were going to do that day.  One of the places we went to had these kid sized hamster tubes, that is where her and her younger sister spent most of the time.  My husband and I were sitting there bored out of our minds, so naturally, I decided to pull out the camera and entertain ourselves.  This shot is the only somewhat normal photo I was able to get of us two. The other images I took were of us laughing our asses off, making stupid faces, licking each other, or groping each other. Good times!  My husband is actually my best friend, we seem to laugh uncontrollably most times we are together, this day was no different. So instead of taking anything fancy for this weeks self-portrait, I figured I’d stick with something more real life instead.

Self-portrait 11/52

“If you have never lost your sanity, then you have never been in love.”

 

My week 11 of 52 self portrait.  I decided to partake in this weeks ‘Self Portrait Sunday’ event with ‘The Art of Self Portraiture’ community over on G+, the theme is ‘Love’.

 

This photo is lyrically inspired by the song ‘In Boxes by Aurora’, I’ve been wanting to do a photo to this song for a few years now. If you haven’t heard it, give it a listen, it’s a bit twisted… I like twisted. 😉

Some of the lyrics:

“Here I am still lonely with the souvenirs
I would kill for some company
Temporarily
I did once have a lover only kept his hands
They can dance and play the songs for me
Play until I sleep”

 

What’s this image have to do with love?  Well… I’m a fan of hands and the way they can make you feel. I’ve often told my husband that when he dies, or when I kill him… I’m keeping his hands. The man has magic fingers, but even aside from the many sexual pleasures they provide, they offer a sense of intimacy that I’ll never tire of, a closeness that even in silence can be felt with something as simple as putting his hand in mine. Sigh… (let me have my girl moment here).  Hand holding is where it’s at!  So much so that when I had my friend with benefits (when I was single),  hand holding was on my list of no-no’s.  It’s just too….intimate and caring, don’t care about me, just do me! Hee… I clearly have issues!

 

This….right here:

“Have you ever really held the hand of someone you love? Not just in passing, a loose link between you – but truly clasped, with the pulses of your wrists beating together and your fingers mapping the knuckles and nails like a cartographer learning a country by heart?”
― Jodi Picoult

 

On a lighter note, his hands belong to me, I’m keeping them…forever!

Self-portrait 10/52

 

I’ve had this song, ‘Oh Ms. Believer, by Twenty One Pilots’ stuck in my head for the past week. I kind of love it and have been overplaying the fuck out of it.  Felt like I needed an image to go with it.

 

Happy to say I’ve made it 10 weeks into this self-portrait challenge and haven’t wanted to quit yet, that’s saying a lot. Only 42 more weeks to go!   Damn, that sounds overwhelming when I say it out loud.  I’ll just stop saying it out loud I guess.  Week 10, done!
