Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
I hope everyone had an amazing weekend full of LOVE or shared with friends. I love any holiday and reason to celebrate BUT Valentine’s day is one of my favorites. It celebrates couples and just makes you feel good!!
This is hard to admit but the week before Valentine’s day I wasn’t feeling too great about myself. I have felt sluggish, really tired, and just plain gross! I have gained a few pounds over the last few months. I just haven’t been feeling like myself.
On Monday I met with this awesome photographer, Nicki Metcalf Pliodzinskas, and we sat for about an hour talking about photography and life. I had a realization that I praise and lift up my HM brides! I love to make them feel special and beautiful, no matter what shape or size they are. I realized that I wasn’t doing that for myself! I had gained weight and I was being so hard on myself because my jeans were a little snug.
I decide that day that I needed to do something special. I messaged Nicki and set up a photo session for the NEXT DAY!!! Luckily, my mom and I had made a Khol’s run and found a great dress for one of my bridal shows. I was already set and I didn’t even know it!
I had a blast and felt so beautiful. Sometimes everyone needs to be in the spotlight, only if it is for an hour! Ladies, you are beautiful no matter what size you are! You deserve to feel that way.
Here are the amazing photos that Nicki took!! Hope you enjoy and happy Monday.
