We had our family photos taken this week with a Groupon for JC Penney. As usual, the photo session there was rushed and awkward and most of the photos turned out terribly. But we did manage to get a few good ones, and here is one of Alan and me that I love:
This is my last year of being in my thirties. I think I’ve officially hit my “midlife crisis” phase of life. This picture helped me feel a little better about myself because it turned out nicely and magically hides the things I don’t like about my appearance these days. I always wanted to age gracefully and not feel badly about getting older, but now that it is happening to me I am not feeling graceful about it at all. It is very difficult to embrace the changes.
We got a decent family photo to use for Christmas cards, but Mia really doesn’t like it, so I won’t post it. Here is a cute one of our sweet girls:
I guess we’re all growing up. Some of us are just further along than others.
