    @gonewiththewind It does seem that your challenge is resonating with the folk here.
    It has been lovely to look through the layouts and see smiling faces filling the gallery.
    Well done to everyone that took the challenge and took that selfie and wrote those words.

    Oh, I really don't like selfies, just because I think I always
    look very weird from so close ...
    My daughter, on the other hand, is a real selfie queen.
    She makes selfies almost daily and regularly sends them to me.
    She is equally beautiful on all photos, she smiles,
    her hair is perfect and the exposure is good.
    No wonder I am never satisfied with a selfie
    if I always compare mine with hers.

    Selfie time, full-on no make-up and after a workout -- but gotta love a nice B&W treatment. I have 98 words in my journaling.

    Journaling (86 words): There are three pieces of jewelry that I wear Every Single Day. My Wedding rings, my diamond stud earrings (Jeremy gave to me on our wedding day) & my tiny little stud nose ring. Besides the fact that I’m terribly allergic to anything fake, I just don’t wear much jewelry. Occasionally I’ll wear a necklace- my favorite is a simple sterling silver chain with a black pendant that was my Nanny’s. As I get older, I only care to wear things that are important to me!

    Yes, you may absolutely use a filter! Although I know you might not want to share a photo of what you look like sick, I'm gonna encourage you to do so and maybe even share how it's hard to do real life when you feeling under the weather. Maybe one day it will be an encouragement for one of your family. :)

    I have to admit this challenge stopped me in my tracks for a second. Not that I didn't think I could do it but I hate selfies (and school pictures) because I have never been photogenic. That being said, I used both on my page! :giggle Along with 134 words of journaling (according to the wordcounter website because every time I tried to count my words I got interrupted and had to start again!).

    I'm not sure I know what an environmental portrait is, but I'm guessing it includes more of your body than just a headshot, correct? Like maybe you curled under the covers? If so, that's fine as long as your facial features are visible. If you're still not sure about it from this response, don't hesitate to private message with your photo and we'll chat. :)
