The goal was to encourage and be encouraged, and although the night didn’t go exactly as planned, I think the goal was accomplished. 🙂
Big thanks to everyone who attended; it was so heart-warming to see the public come in and admire the faces of many beautiful women. Also, I absolutely love company… I love to host and entertain, so I’m in total heaven when friends stop by. My favorite part of the entire evening though, were the mommies who brought their young daughters along with them. The precious little girls scribbled their sweet compliments with wobbly hands and tiny fingers. And when I watched them reaching for the portrait with their love note in hand, I couldn’t help but to hope that as they grow, this small event helps them look at themselves with love in this tough world. Sticky note reminders on their sweet hearts.
To everyone who entered a selfie- I admire your bravery. I admire your beauty. I hope you see yourself in a new light.
To those of you who wrote me sweet notes, messages, and Facebook comments- Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am incredibly blessed to have you in my life.
