Today is Embrace the Camera day
What does that mean you ask?
Today is the day that we are challenged (by Emily) to step out from behind the camera and get in front of it. Why? For our families, our spouses, children, and grandchildren and on and on, so they know who we are, remember our times together and the fun that was had. So for future generations, we are not only a name, but we are a face.
Today, I am stepping out from behind the camera, not with my children, or spouse, but by myself. You see, todays embrace is 2 fold. It is me, in a lovely paper gown, being pro-active about my health, so I can not only be just in pictures, but so I can be physically present!
Welcome to my annual doctor's appointment.
And I'm not talking "Women's Health" here. This is my annual full body skin check at the dermatologist.
This annual check is very important to me ~ and I suggest you all go and have a full skin check. A few years ago I had a couple moles removed. They were considered dysplastic nevi. Basically atypical moles that can put you at a higher risk for melanoma.
So, every year I go in and get my skin checked out ~ from my scalp to the tips of my toes.
And thankfully, nothing looked abnormal.
Time to get on with making more memories with my loved ones!
Oh, I must mention, I did get "caught" taking pictures of my reflection in the mirror by my nurse. Pretty sure she thinks I'm crazy!
