Happy Easter Weekend! Taking the kids to do an Easter egg hunt with our church. You can imagine the absurd excitedness that IS happening now ;)
My cousin grew up to be one handsome gentleman… I’m very impressed, hehe. @thomlennon and I shot his senior photos, and it was a blast hopping fences, seeing snakes and climbing through fallen trees looking for backdrops.
"REALLLY??" Ha! This little character. She’s always entertaining me from the backseat!
Also… Thank you so much everyone for the sweet comments on my last post. I was… Overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness, to say the least. Thank you…!
The grass is always greener. You know how I know that? Get ready for me to unload my personal hangups. Because I’m actually crying.. Looking at old photos of myself, and feeling jealous of a previous self.. But realizing I hated my body in an opposite way then than how I STILL emotionally batter myself and my self image (psychologically) today. This journey of healthy eating, regularly working out, food journaling had taught me that I can be full of crap. I can’t wait to put a few pounds back on and feel comfortable with myself by not under-eating and aiming for something unnecessary. But more than that, I’m learning to say to myself “I am beautiful” and to starting believing it… I’m going to become that for my children as well. It’s something way deeper than superficial beauty, but it’s also about giving in and accepting that I am a beautiful woman… And I say that, for any other woman suffering from self-hate. You are beautiful (out and in).
Evidentially dairy doesn’t seem to like me very much these days. I’ve been trying alternatives like lactose-free milk.. At least this stuff froths a lot better than soy and almond milk :)
