...Happy thou shalt be, and it shall be well with thee...Psalm 128:2

I am very happy today that we didn't get rain which we've had a lot of lately and
that's reason enough to smile. It was overcast this afternoon when I did this self portrait in the shade on the north side of our yard. I did briefly post another self portrait earlier today for this challenge but removed it as I liked the lighting better on this one.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. Donna, I have made good use of this vintage white hat that I bought on sale awhile back and love that I am seeing more people wearing hats again.. Sarah, sometimes I am very self conscious about my smile because my teeth are not even, but at least I haven't lost any yet, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sweet compliment.

    You are a very beautiful lady, Andrea, and one with a very lovely smile. Even more important is the inner beauty which flows from you in both your self portraits and your smile!!!
