The flower crown series. (Series of photos, that is.)
So, on New Year's Eve, I put on the flower crown seen in a photo grid a few posts ago and Yogi snapped away, as is his wont.
Okay, fine, he doesn't always just grab his camera (thankfully, 'cause that'd be annoying), and there are times when I might be feeling particularly pretty and I'll ask him to take a photo or two, but there are also times when I'm feeling particularly hideous and he wants to take a photo of me then, without a lick of makeup or looking like a scrag (mind you, I only ever wear mascara/eyeliner/lippie when I do wear makeup, never foundation) (...I'm lazy), and I'm all, "Er, the hell?"
But to him, inexplicably, I don't look like a scrag in those moments so...you know, that's good. And sweet. But it shouldn't be documented with photography, is all I'm sayin'.
Here are some photos of me wearing the crown I'd bought earlier that day.
I'm looking uncharacteristically glum for some reason. Clearly I wasn't in the NYE spirit at that point.
(OMG, crack a smile, self!)
Also, next time I'm totally making my own flower crown, à la the lovely TJ at His Little Lady who had a totally bitchin' flower crown made of real flowers, and said crown made an appearance in her blog picture several months ago. It also totally inspired me to make or buy a flower crown because flower crowns: pretty! Romantic!
(...and totally impractical and inappropriate in day-to-day life. Drat!)
