I am participating in the Reverb 10 project. You can read my first post here.

Prompt for December 25: Photo – a present to yourself. Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.

I know I already shared this photo, but really, nothing better encapsulates me in 2010 than this shot. I had been up for almost two days, I still have all my IVs in my arm, I could only shower as best as one could in a tiny hospital shower, and I had no idea what it would take to be a mother. But perhaps what this photo best represents is everything I ever hoped to be.
