I went to the DMV today to update my driver's license with my new address and add the Class M (motorcycle) endorsement. I had the opportunity to take a new photo but I declined. I don't like to pose for the camera, especially with a bunch of strangers around. Besides, no one really cares what the photo of me looks like on my license.
Later I thought I would've liked to see a snapshot of my face and the joy I felt knowing I had accomplished something I was intimidated to do or thought I could never do (to ride a motorcycle). And since it has been years since I posted for Self Portrait Thursday, there was no better time than the very moment I took this photo.
I also want to remember the pearl earrings John gave me for our 7th anniversary. I love pearls but they don't share the same feelings as I do and they like to get lost so I hope these stick around for a just a little while longer than the last few lol...
Please forgive the bags under my eyes. I have been battling severe allergies all week!
