From 2005 to early 2013, I did not like my photo being taken. After my lap band surgery I had wanted my mom and I to have a nice photograph taken of the two of us. I realize I am no where near my weight loss goal but I felt the need to start taking photos of myself again. I asked a good friend of ours to take our photos this past Friday, September 26, 2014. She ended up taking about 10 wonderful memories for my mom and I to cherish. Some are not posted because they are going to be Christmas surprises. I put most of the others on my facebook page. And I wanted to share one on my weight loss blog. I have this wall hanging in the middle of my “dining room” wall surrounded by other gorgeous photos of my childhood and people who have made an impact on my life. This wall hanging greets you in the face when you walk directly into my new home too. It’s a constant reminder to me each and every single day.
