I had to have a new picture of myself for a Relief Society spotlight, so I thought I'd share the one Andrew just took. After our photography class last weekend, we've been more conscious about ISO and flash, so I think this one turned out pretty well -- especially since it was taken inside at 7 p.m.!
And here is my lovely birthday gift from Andrew, a rose-gold watch. I love that it's oversized and boyfriend-inspired, but it's not enormous and heavy. He did well.
Yes, I realize that my skin looks mottled and purple (as it often does -- the result of poor circulation), but I'm too lazy to Photoshop the picture and make myself look better, so just pay attention to the watch and not my arm. :)
We started teaching the 16-year-olds in Sunday School today, and I'm already trying to come up with a better plan for next week. Teaching teens is hard! How do you get them to pay attention and stop talking? At least they're nice and none of them are troublemakers. I remember having some really obnoxious kids in my Sunday School class when I was in high school. We'll see how things go.
Do you feel like time flies by faster as you get older? Sometimes I don't know where the day has gone! I remember as a kid watching the clock or counting the days down to my birthday or to Christmas, and now, before I know it, they've passed by. Another year older and, hopefully, wiser! I'm determined to make 25 much better than 24.
