Day 22 of 30
Day 22 of 30
Photos including my real body, for 30 days... all as an experiment to see what shifts in my life if I’m willing to shake things up!
💡 I literally cried upon seeing these sneak peeks from photographer and human extraordinaire, @ashtynbrooke
💡 Tears came partly because I adore and treasure these moments more than I can express with words... and partly because I’m mourning all the moments missed, images tossed away and joy lost from the times I couldn’t see beyond my body shame. It makes me physically ill to think of all that’s lost, but crazy, wildly, gleefully excited for all that’s to come now that I’m releasing the shame.
💡 I had such a fun morning having my makeup done by @meli_longoria... we laughed over friends, commiserated about whether or not to change your name when you get married (FYI I regret changing mine... ask me about it sometime if you’re curious) and she made me feel like a glowing goddess!
💡 I saw my husband, half wrapped up in a white towel after his shower this morning, and I blushed with intrigue and attraction toward him! He’s such a freaking delight of a human - mind, body and soul.
💡 I discovered and devoured my 3rd favorite pizza tonight! Favorite is from Larchetto in Rome, 2nd is from Illazerone (sp?) in Kansas City and 3rd is now from Cosmos in Naples, FL.
💡 I want to have monthly photo shoots now - we used to do this SO often and I remember why I loved it so!
💡 I’m grateful, grateful, grateful.
💡 I’m making a playlist of all the songs I’ve played during my photo shoots to share with you all!
💡 I counted 126 alligators on our drive to Naples today - I felt completely overcome with the compulsion to keep counting them... I was fixated, like a kid, looking out the window to add to the tally 🐊
💡 PS Wilhelm says these are his favorite photos of us EVER & I think the 2nd photo in this group is one of my all time single favorites!
