DSC_6178Two years ago my life completely changed. I was given the blessing of a happy, healthy daughter. It was a wonderful gift but one that came with many sacrifices. Several which have found themselves sitting along my waistline. I’ve never been called skinny but I’m definitely at a weight I never thought I’d be. However, I’m here and I’m done bashing myself because of the size that’s written on my dress’ label. I want to empower women everywhere to find their own form of beauty and stop relying on what society is saying. There’s a big movement going on right now and plus size women are finding their place among the rest. I want to be a part of that movement. May you find inspiration and encouragement here.

  1. I came to your blog because I read an article you wrote about kissing your daughter on her lips. I just wanted to say I agree with you and I am glad to not be alone! My son is almost 2 1/2 and has *finally* gotten the concept of kissing to show love (since I’ve showered him with kisses since the day he was born). Although the vast majority of my kisses have been on his cheeks, he mostly picked up on kissing on the lips. He makes a big production of it (smiling and giving a loud “aaaaaaaahhhhhh” wind up before he puckers and kisses me on the lips) and I absolutely adore the demonstration. I admit I have been nervous that he will do this during daycare pickup/drop-off one of these days, as I don’t know how his teachers will take it!

    It was just nice to read something so publicly posted from another mom. I, too, will continue to kiss my son on the lips for however long we both are comfortable with it, and I wanted YOU to know also that there’s another mom out there who agrees!


    1. That is so sweet, Amanda. Thank you for taking the time to search out my blog and post this. Appreciate the support and wish you and your sweet boy the very best!
