After realizing that we had NO recent couple pictures, we made it a point to take one last night before we headed to our anniversary dinner.  It's so hard for me to be okay with pictures.  I want to criticize myself.  Just when I think I've come a long way in my struggle for self-acceptance, all the insecurities about my physical appearance rush back in when I can't find a picture that I like.  But, you know what, we live a good life, right in this moment, and I need to embrace it instead of thinking that my life will finally begin when I lose a set number of pounds.  Life doesn't work that way.  Hero has a poster on her wall that says "Be patient with me - God's not done yet".  That's so true.  I'm a work-in-progress and if God and my wonderful husband can love me just as I am, then I should be able to love myself too.

I hear you on this one, Melissa! But, you know what? My girls love to cuddle with me because "Daddy isn't as comfortable" as I am! :) You always looks so put together. Great picture of you and James.
