There are times I feel really down about myself, as we all do, but today I decided to embrace my changes, stop fretting about my WAY overdue need for a brow wax, and celebrate the absolute joy in my life.
I love my babies. I mean, I really love them. I had a parent/teacher conference today and I was literally beaming the whole time that someone else actually sees all the amazing qualities I love in my daughter. Though being a stay-at-home-mom could be thankless, I have a husband who works really hard to be my teammate, and is an enormous help with the kiddos when I can't take one more bicker or whine. He also kills spiders like it's his job. I love him.
Neal and I have been together since we were 21. The Regan from 2000 was a silly college junior with an idea of the world but no real experience living in it. When I see pictures of her, she looks like a child. I like being older and sorta wiser. I like looking in the mirror and seeing the evidence of years of laughter on my face.
So I took the camera by the straps :) I decided to snap a photo of myself, in all my aged glory, so I could remember this day and this part of my life that I love. Happy Friday peeps!
