the joy of love - together

Wednesday, 16 February 2011

I'm not a girly person. I don't have much of a clue when it comes to makeup and rarely wear it. I'm not big on jewelery and I have a pair of Converse All Stars in the closet downstairs that are older than some of my cousins. I own one purse at a time and don't usually buy a new one until the current one falls apart.

With that being said, there is one girly thing I do on a regular basis - paint my toenails. It's a necessity if you are going to rock a pair of flip flops.

While I have no immediate plans to rock flip flops due to three feet of snow on the ground, my daughter requested that we have a foot bath party today when she got home from school.

The joy of love assignment for today is "together (self portrait)". The requirement was that the photographer had to be in the shot with their loved one.

Nobody said it had to be my face.

too cute...and i'm so onboard with the pedis and i can't wait until my daughter (only 7 months) is old enough to enjoy them with me!

Love it! I had to laugh because I am a lot like you! I'm not a girly girl at all but my daughter sure is. Love the toes and the creative idea for the picture!

LOL This is exactly the kind of shot I was attempting with my daughter (5 y/o multicolored toe nails / momma blue toe nails, and all). Didn't happen. Not well, in any case.

Yours turned out fabulously! I love it!

Yay! I'm not the only one who paints my toes all sorts of colors! I like your take on the day's theme- very cute!

such a fun shot! i'm exactly the same way...i'm not really into make-up or clothes, but my fingers and toes are always trimmed and painted. i look at it more like it's good hygiene and not high maintenance! ;)
