Rise Up, Beautiful Girl

Make sure when you play dress up, make-up your face pretty and paint your eyes the colors of your soul you recognize the true, unique beauty behind the smoke and mirrors. Embrace the big belly laughs, slip-ups, insecurities and vulnerable girly silliness... rise up and lift your head towards the sun... true beauty lives inside the recesses of fine lines, heartfelt tears, risks taken, lived and embraced straight from the heart. 


Find the joy, pull your shoulders back, stand tall and let yourself bask in the light, beautiful girl. 

Loving the whole package takes a whole lot of time, strength and bon-vivant-courage. 

Go on, get it. 

Treat yourself to the finest riches, luxurious and spoiled indulgences... 

Have a face-painting, dance-it-out, dress-me-up, big girl party.

One that screams

Hey look mom, "I'm all grown up!"  

You've earned it.
