This was taken on my wedding day one year ago…
I don’t know what I weighed that day. I did my own makeup, light and simple. My hair turned out pretty cute. My mom finished the happy yellow ribbon for the dress that morning. Nothing was exactly in place but everything was absolutely as it was meant to be. All day I embraced my own beauty inside and out, and I was totally present. The abundance of laughter, hugs, kisses, dancing, and family that celebrated life with faith and love that day filled me completely.
RECOVERY MADE THIS POSSIBLE.
