Found this on my FB today.
I take umbrage to this app.
Life is imperfect. People are imperfect. Selfies are imperfect.
AND IT IS OKAY TO BE IMPERFECT! Who are you trying to fool anyway?
I have sun freckles and moles and stray, not yet plucked eyebrows. That’s me! And that’s fine. Really.

This is not a “look how cute my kid is!” montage of photos. These are the photos I sent to BreatheStephanieBreathe every time my kid stopped. On a half mile walk.
ARRRRGGGH.

I get the best cast-offs/hand-me-downs from faithful five Sarah (hi Sarah!) 
She gave me this offset zippered hoodie thing. Fun and good for the bizarre weather today.

Back when I started to work out, it was namely to get in shape (read: lose weight). 
Now, it’s become nearly intolerable to live without it. My sanity depends on it. Sometimes I think of it in terms of calorie burn, but most of the time I think of it in terms of amount of stress relieved. 
That’s my motivation.
