From our Birthday Girl: When I went to Maria [Tony Chicas Photography ] for these pictures I was looking for a vision in my head. You'll never know the fight in your head to remind yourself that you are not ugly. That you are perfect as is. Self love is hardwork when you're fighting teenage acne well into your 30s. Self love is tricky when a person says the kid is almost 4 but you still ain't skinny. Self love is tricky when post partum hair loss won't give you edges back to do anything with.
Self love is far fetched when you're no longer a zero but that full figure means you're no longer just a gurlllll but someone's mom. Maria thank you for reminding me. And to anyone else who read to this point welll go out and love on you right now. I finally got here at 35. I learned to love me as is. Thanks for attending my lil TED talk.
