HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
As I turn 27 again (ok..ok…30) I reflected on my life, blessings, challenges, areas to improve and areas that are going well. In my daily life, like many other women, I wear many hats: mommy, wife, teacher, sister, daughter, photographer, designer, Christian, cheerleader, and more… I decided I need to take 1 day a year and pamper myself a little bit and create images that would be one part of my legacy to my children. Everyone woman should take at least 1 day to look and feel better about themselves and showcase their true beauty. There is NO PHOTOSHOP in any of the images of me to make me look any skinner and they were all taken the same day – it’s all about having a great photographer (which I happened to be married to) that knows about to pose you well! I fell so in love with this idea and had such a wonderful experience that we will definitely be dong more pictures for women like my photo shoot! Stay tuned!

My babies and sis surprised me when we went to dinner in uptown with some balloons! Aren’t my babies cute?
