It is always a treat when one of our babes who wasn’t sure if they wanted to share, comes back to us later on and not only gives us permission to share their art, but also writes such a beautiful, vulnerable piece to go along with it!
So excited to throw it back to this absolutely gorgeous mother of two!
“When I was asked to write a blog I thought for a moment, why would anyone want to know what I have to say, what makes me so special? And that’s when it occurred to me, that I think the majority of people feel that way. Just like most of us, I’m a mom, a wife, a business woman, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a board member, a volunteer, a cook, a housekeeper, a chauffeur and the list goes on and on. But, on the day of my shoot, I was someone I never allow myself to be because all those other roles come first. I was mortified, I was 30 minutes early sitting in my car contemplating whether or not to get out. My stomach was doing back flips and I thought I might be sick. I should be at work, I shouldn’t have taken the day off. I shouldn’t have spent that money on myself, there are so many other things I could have done with it. I took a deep breath, got out of my car and walked up the street and rung the bell. The rest kind of feels like a dream, I was swept away to this place where for once, it was all about me. I wasn’t in the best shape I have ever been, if anything I’m pretty close to weighing more than I ever have, yet I still felt comfortable with myself. Lindsay and Erin made me feel so relaxed and welcome that morning. I have to say I’ve never felt so beautiful in all my life, no, not even on my wedding day did I feel like this. In that moment I was a celebrity, a rock star, I was a freakin’ super model! That day and that experience changed me. I have a little more pep in my step these days. I feel empowered to do more things for myself without harboring guilt because at the end of the day, when you feel good about yourself it shines through, making you more successful in the various roles you play every day.”
