My favorite photo of myself: If I had to choose a favorite photo of myself I would certainly pick one from when I was little.. I looked just like my daughters or rather they look like I did. Also I was so opinionated about fashion, even then. I liked ripped jeans and too big t-shirts. I have one picture that I can't seem to find.. but I was 3 years old, wearing nothing but underwear and my mothers army boots. It's definitely my favorite photo.
