This week’s prompt was to describe yourself, in agonizing detail, in your journal. I went on for pages, since most of you know that I over share and talk, a lot. Well, just so you know, below is the edited version. I only share the choicest bits with my followers you know. Plus, there are only some bits that I feel comfortable letting the WHOLE world know. There you have it; I censored myself just for you.
First off, if you can’t tell from the pictures on this site and my profile page, I am a pale girl. I have not always been this pale, but my times of lying around the pool, running around in the sun, and in general going outside without sunscreen plastered all over came to an end a while ago. Kids have made my life a bit crazy so I have not had a tan in nearing on a decade. In addition you may notice that I have reddish hair, kind of a dark auburn. I like it, and we will call it my color of choice.
As for height I am on the petite side, just under 5’5” and fall in between my parents. My feet used to be a 7, and then I had kids. Now they are an 8 ½ or 9 depending on the style. Not something I would ever have dreamed of when I had kids you know. I also have 2 beauty marks on the left side of my face. One is on the curve of my jaw below my ear and the other next to my nose.

get of my eyes. Yep, no makeup
If you are really good you would also have noticed that I have brown eyes in my pictures. My brown eyes are not really brown. My mom and I have the same type of eyes: light brown with gold rings in them. They are very unique. When I went to the school of optometry in college they always had the students come in and look at my eyes, which always boggled my mind until I asked what was going on. It also happened to my mom when she was in school. You see, we have what are known as amber eyes. This refers to the fact that our eyes appear brown but they actually have a golden hue to them, like amber and are among the rarest of eye colors in the world. Mine have gold rings and a copper overtone and are not like a lot of the pictures you see of the near yellow eyes. The optometrist told me it is due to the fact that I have a higher concentration of lipochrome then others with brown eyes.
I do have piercings, 2 in each ear. The first set my Grandmother Combs took me to get for my 11th birthday, against the wishes of my parents. The second piercing was done when I was 17 (I lied and told the lady I was 18), again against the wishes of my parents. Yeah, I thought they were so old school, it was just an ear piercing you know. My mom didn’t get hers done until she was in her 20s so I guess I can see why the thought I should wait. Those are the only ones I have, by the way, and as of today I have no tattoos.
First off, I was born with a
I wear a wedding band and my replacement engagement ring on my left hand. The band is gold with a braid decoration in the center. The other is white gold with my favorite stone as the focal, a sapphire. I tend to
