I saw this circulating Facebook today, read it, shared it, and now want to share it with you all.

Take a minute and read it.
So much truth. So much nodding and saying, Yes! Yes!

Such a real and sweet article. I felt like she's talking about me. LOL. But I totally love this part "When I look at pictures of my own mother, I don't look at cellulite or hair debacles. I just see her -- her kind eyes, her open-mouthed, joyful smile, her familiar clothes. That's the mother I remember."

Thanks for sharing!

this is so true and so me right now--just had a baby in February and I'm so not happy with my body. But this article reminded me that I should just be happy. That's what I want my children to remember when they see photographs of me.

Trina, I cried. Since I'm 8 months postpartum, do I still get to use the hormones excuse?! lol

Oh yeah, she is so totally right!! I did put two piccies(one with each of my kids) in the slideshow!
I always avoid piccies of myself because I do feel fat and insecure and NEVER want photo's taken
of my total body! But it isn't fun for the kids when you are in zero of the holiday piccies right? ;)
Yesterday I took some weirdo piccies with my little niece because of the article, so she has something
fun later! ;)
