Today is my birthday…

Today is my birthday, I turn 28 years old. This year has become unknowingly about re-learning who I am. New Goals, new beginnings. I didn’t think that I could actually make it with a blog for over a year, and as I keep writing I find new things to focus on all the time. I believe next week will be about the importance of limiting water usage and how we can all do our part to save the world, but re-wearing our clothes.

In the mean time… I speak so often about learning to love your body for what it is, but I so rarely post of myself. Some of this is lack of space in my apartment for proper lighting to take non-terrible mirror selfies in my thrift store outfits and some of it is my desire to desolve in to the background. I suppose my readership doesn’t know I also play guitar and I was recently invited by the lovely and talented Zed Martinez, a local artist and photographer and friend of mine, to do a photo shoot.

What started as a fun and somewhat comical shoot resulted in a series of photographs that had me re-examining the way I see myself. I think readers, there is a different between being a conceited narcissus and learning to just inhabit your own skin unapologetically. I don’t particularly feel I am photogenic, but what a trip to be presented as such!

Thank you to all my excellent readers, I hope that you have days where you feel this insanely beautiful! You do only get one body! Might as well make the best of it!
