#365feministselfie: Week 25

Happy National Selfie Day!

I am participating once again in the #365feministselfie project, now in its sixth year. Here is a thread for others to share selfies and/or talk about the project, visibility generally, self-appreciation, and related topics. And also because I always just love seeing your splendid faces!

A few of my selfies over the last two weeks:

image of me in a grocery store, pictured from the shoulders up, smiling broadly, with my hair pulled back in a bun and wearing grey-framed glasses and a grey t-shirt

I took the above photo right after I accidentally put kaiser rolls in a stranger's cart at the grocery store. "That's my cart," she said. "Oh, I just thought you might want some kaiser rolls," I said. And we both totally cracked up.

Rainy day nap. Tangle of legs.

On our 17th anniversary, Iain brought me a giant, colorful,
fragrant bouquet, and I was really excited about it!
