flowers in her hair

This week's writing prompt from Mama's Losing It: tell the story of your current Facebook profile picture.






The girl in this picture has flowers in her hair, and she's happy - no, delighted. What else could she want in life?


{Plus, she doesn't know it yet, but she's about to watch her former camp counselor/role model dance on a pool table to Empire State of Mind. I repeat, what else could she want in life?}


I keep this picture up because even though I'm tempted - like every member ย of the story of our lives that is Facebook - to display that picture of me in oh-so-perfect lighting or that outfit that photographed one hundred times better than I thought it would, this one not only tells my story best, but reminds me who I am when I'm at my best: delighted with flowers in my hair.
