Stuff Portrait Friday - Past, Present, and Future

I took a few weeks off from playing SPF, but now I'm back. This week's assignment from Kristine was challenging. We had to show something that represented our past, our present, and our future, without using our pets or our kids. Toughy! Anyway my past is 30 years long so there's lots of things that could represent my past. But the thing about my past I probably miss the most is my Dad. So here's a cute picture of me and my Dad, waaaaaay back when.

Showing my present without showing my kid is just plain crazy. My present AND my future is all wrapped up in Nathan. But aside from mothering, there is my job and my fitness craze. The fitness thing is a totally new me and I love it. My favorite new challenge is yoga, and my greatest accomplishment in yoga so far, besides starting to master Chataranga, is doing handstands against the wall. It's so scary and yet so much fun!! So this isn't me, but check out the smiles on these girl's faces!

Ok my future was especially tough, since I don't have a crystal ball. As I mentioned, Nathan and whatever kid(s) I don't have yet are my future. I could say Mike is my future. Here's a picture of my handsome husband.

Or I could tell you that my career goal is to help grow my startup company to at least $50MM a year in revenue and be the #2 in charge, as well as to become president of my industry trade association, the Water Environment Federation. Here's a picture of me and one of my committee chair's who is already boosting my career in the direction I want it to go. Not the most flattering picture of me, but this is what I do best, smile and laugh.

Thanks for stopping by my SPF! Tell me if you played too so I can come visit you!

Handstands?? Yikes. I'm just comfortable with shoulder stands.

I like the past picture too. Priceless.

I played.

I'm jealous of your hand-standing skillz. Also, your dad's pants.

Loved the pic of you and dad. Nice memory.

PS. How is yoga dude? ;)

Ariella said...

That smile is great!
And there is a serious "aw" factor with that pic of you and your dad.
Great stuff!
We played!

I like that you shared that last picture with us. You came clean at the last moment and that is so cool.

I also love that you put that you like to laugh and smile. People need more people like you in their lives.

You're going to have a great future!!

Kate - thanks!

leafgirl - I haven't tried shoulder stands yet. And I'm not great at the handstands but they are so much fun.

sharkey - don't be jealous, if I could find the pants I'd gladly give them to ya.

spikey - yoga dude got a corporate job cuz real estate wasn't treating him well so he can't come to my morning class anymore. Maybe he'll be in my new night class starting next week.

ariella - thanks, I'll stop by soon.

yonzie - thanks chiquita!!

kami - me too...ah the 70's

kristine - I'm not the funniest person in the world but I will laugh at all your lame jokes.
