So did you hear? The SELFIE became a thing during 2013. Now I’ve been taking selfies for years now- I guess before they became selfies. I know I know they’ve become a little bit lame or so the cool kids have decided. Considering I’ve never in my life been considered a cool kid I’m going to continue to embracing the selfies!
This past week I participated in my last 7 Days project. My friend Sarah started it 7 years ago and I joined in on the fun on year 2. I didn’t particate every time (it ran 4 times a year- winter, spring, summer and autumn) but I tried to join in whenever I remembered. Soo much fun and so many funny memories for me.

With the explosion of smartphones and my buying my Samsung Galaxy camera it because easier and just as much fun. I guess when you have the selfie bug it doesn’t matter how you capture it as long as you capture it!
I know I’m not the only one with a love for selfies and here are a few of my favourite ones-
