Today is the Day by Spotted Pepper Designs

Today, I wore a bathing suit. In this pale new mom bod that I am still learning how to love. I love my body, I really do. It has done some amazing things. It’s held up to some strong endurance sports. It’s carried all my babies. It’s fed those babies. It’s felt love and happiness. It eats tacos.

My Dreams Coming True


Y’all, I am a girl with big dreams. Today, I was able to take a step towards those dreams. I want my photography edits to be great. I want my blog to be great. (Note to self: still learn CSS.)
