Im appalled at Toddlers & Tiaras...
once again as I catch a few min of it in passing.
These mothers are atrocious and are abusing their children.
Why is this socially accepted and broadcasted?
Shame on you TLC!
I would never duck tape, spray tan, glue eye lashes on, bleach out hair
or sugar dope my crying child
to make myself feel better about my own failures.

Im starting to despise the way men judge me.
Im not a size zero and will never be.
Knowing this is how men see me makes me hate my image.
It makes me want to delete every photo Ive ever posted online
and join an all women's gym.
But I have to tell myself that I am beautiful regardless.
I think when we judge and want to change our own images,
we start to expect that of others.
But really, just because we dont like our own imperfections,
doesnt mean others have to be perfect.

Exactly a year ago right now, I was inflight from WA due to land here in Anchorage. I had tears in my eyes as the Boss slept on my lap. I knew that I had finally found freedom and my new life could begin. Since then it feels as though I have been on vacation from life, no stress and no worries. Though I miss my friends and family dearly, its a small price to pay to be able to breath again. Here is a pic of the boss taken with my BB in Boston before it lost service. I am thankful for the angel that guided me, the Browns, Adam, all of my new coworkers and everyone else I have met along the way ♥ G'night Anchorage and G'morning east coast, I'll be home again some day.

As I left work today I noticed the sun setting over the horizon behind the mountains.
I drove up flattop to see the view of the city below and the ocean/mountains in the distance before it became completely dark.
The pictures I took with my iphone,
hardly do the view or colors justice.
This was exactly what I have been needing...color.
Just when I think I'm crazy for writing
and sharing what I do,
someone like Anthony sends me an email
validating my journey
and my reasons for sharing it!
I am flattered and honored
to inspire a change in someone's life!
I know we really don't know each other but I wanted to take a moment and say thank you. I've been following your story for awhile now and find that everything you've done for yourself and your daughter is nothing less then amazing. How you transformed yourself with loosing weight and how much love you give your daughter is awesome.
7 months ago I hit rock bottom and due to being unhealthy I was over weight and had some medical problems. After reading one of your posts I went back and read a lot of what you had done, with moving and the struggles you had been through. This made me make a bold move in my life to better myself. That night I gave up all fried foods and soda. Since that time I've dropped 3 pants sizes and feel a million times better.
Now I've had a lot of help along the way but it was your story that gave me a spark. Now I know I'll have more time on this earth with my son and wife, thank you for being you. You truly are special and deserve some just as good as you. You will always in my thoughts when I'm running on that trend mill. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
