My Cross-Country Hula-Hoop Adventure, Social Media Perfectionism, and Loving our Beautiful and Imperfect Life

When I woke up this morning, Shelly’s post was one of the first things I read. What a powerful message to us all! Shelly sure knows how to Love Herself and Embrace Herself! I hope her post sets the tone for your day, on this beautiful Friday!

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
