Let's be clear about one thing: I like to share my outfits, not my poses, for the simple reason that I can't pose. I'm not naturally photogenic, nor do I know how to make love to the camera. Honestly, people, what does that mean? My husband, B, usually takes my photos, so we're both very aware of my inability to be interesting in front of the camera, but my sisters don't know about that. So they made faces while taking these photos. And I laughed.

So now that you've seen my laugh face (aka my "where have my eyes gone?" face), I have no secrets left to keep. Open book, you guys, open book.

Today, I got the itch to craft, so I busted out the ol' needle and thread and sewed and sewed and sewed until I poked holes in my fingers. Then I treated myself to an acai bowl  and took pictures of the mountains I saw during the drive home.

  2. I love it!

    My eyes disappear when I smile/laugh too. Which is part of the reason why I rarely smile in photos. I like to make crazy faces instead. :)

  8. Your laugh face is adorable. My bf Kristen loses her eyes when she smiles too big. It's my favorite face that she makes in pictures, though.

  24. Have I ever mentioned what a pansy I am when it comes to the cold and/or snow? I'm freezing just looking but it's so pretty! You're so brave for wearing such a cute outfit in weather that would've had me layered so much I looked like a wookie. I know exactly what you mean about the smiling in photos thing. I worry that my chin and jaw disappear in to my neck. THAT, is such a flattering look on me! ;)

  25. I love your laugh face, Laura! I never know how to pose either and have had my own share of awkward (but fun) outfit photo sessions with my siblings over the years. I hope you've been enjoying your time with yours to the fullest. <3

    Oh, and your floral peplum top is bee-yoo-ti-ful! :)
