Believing a compliment shouldn’t be so hard #NowBelieveIt

I grew up in a time when coddling did not happen. Add on the fact that I had a verbally abusive mother and you have me, an insecure girl who grew up thinking the worst about myself. I have tried almost every  yo-yo diet and wanted so badly to be everything I wasn't.

Between the price for Club Soccer, year-long swim, cheerleading, braces, etc, our budget is very tight, so when I discussed back-to-school shopping with Kohl's I decided that this year I am going to be smart and purchase mix and match clothing that can be worn different ways … [Read more...]

This is why I love giving him something special to … [Read more...]
