So... this is what happiness feels like...

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 26, 2014, 7:21 PM
Heather left this morning to Porter Hospital to get her long awaited breast reduction. It went well, and she is now at her parents house for a week of recovery. On one hand I am so excited for our future, and how her confidence will blossom... but I'm having a sad at the fact that she'll be away for an entire week. In the almost 2 years we have been together we haven't been apart longer than one night. It's a little bit of a daunting thought.

So many things have been happening, I don't even know where to start. As most of you have seen I have been posting some more photography. I'm attempting to do one shoot a week, but it's turning more into one shoot a month, but! It's art so.. No big deal. I have been branching out more into photographing the wondrous bodies of all of my lovely friends. Some as a confidence booster with a little pin up shoot, or a shoot to go along with a theme they are working on with their dancing career. It's wonderful and liberating. I adore helping women open up to seeing their beauty and to flourish in front of the camera. 

I am also going to be posting alot more traditional art. We just got our art studio set up and I can't wait to get to working in there. ALOT of sewing will be happening also, so watch out!

So, in mid January I opened my own private massage practice. I just wanted to let you lovelies know that it has been beyond successful and I can't be more thankful. I am so humbled, and so excited that at age 23 I am already a business owner. 

Guys, this is what happiness is. Being in control of your destiny. Being in love. Supporting the people you care about in everything they desire. Making art with your soul and heart in complete harmony. 

I am also starting to lose the weight I gained during that terrible 5 year section of my life. My depression has subsided, and now it's time for me to love my body. I am with a partner now who accepts and adores my body for what it is, how it's changing, and the possibility of what it could be. 
Every curve, scar, freckle... she kisses it all without a second of hesitation. 


P.s. I want more penpals. Note me your addresses and I'll send you lovely things. 

Also, I am going to be keeping a vlog about my fitness progress. Check it out if you want. --->
