It's been a long time coming. I've worked hard to get to where I am today. I haven't always been happy, content, and at a peace with myself. So don't mind me if I brag about my accomplishments, toot my own horn, and celebrate my success -- I've earned it!
- I've lost 170 pounds in the slow lane with a conscious change to my diet and regular exercise. In turn, I've gained a whole lot of self-confidence and self-love.
- I've authored two cookbooks, both of them in circulation at the Fort Vancouver Regional Library and my latest -- Shop, Cook, Eat: Outside of the Box is a required textbook at Clark College.
- I write a successful blog that inspires, encourages and educates. Sometimes, my blog is even featured in print in The Live Well section of The Columbian newspaper.
- I teach cooking classes, speak at venues, and facilitate women's groups -- I foster community.
Yesterday, Lydene Robertson Photography invited me into her lovely studio to help me celebrate myself and my successes. Thank you Lydene for showing me how truly beautiful I am -- you are AMAZING. Thanks to Camille Goldy Saari of Posh Skin and Hair for doing a fabulous job on my makeup and hair and making me so pretty.
For those who have never had a professional photo shoot -- you should. It's time to start celebrating YOU. I highly recommend, without any reservations Lydene Robertson Photography.
