Breaking all the rules…

Hi. It’s me. Aims. Shhhh…don’t tell AB, totally hijacking her day. LOL. Actually, I missed mine (where did this week go?), and thought I would share a bit before I was reported MIA. Last night my amazing husband and I attended his Battalion Ball. It was our first one, and I was nervous. I can’t tell you how misguided that was. What an amazing time. I felt like Cinderella..complete with my Prince Charming by my side. I also realized that for one of the first events n a very long time, I FELT beautiful. The gown, hair, make-up, ballroom and all its magic just added to the evening. The greatest moment though, was watching the slideshow of the past year..our Soldiers returned from a deployment to Iraq, and we had lots to share and celebrate. As pictures began filling the screen, I gasped…there I was, or was that even me? The only similarity were the facial expressions and features, it wasn’t ME. That girl was not who I saw when I looked into the mirror getting ready that evening, she was a past that I had left..90lbs ago!! I used to hate pictures of me, now I realize they are all just a part of my journey. I DID look that way last year, now a healthier, happier person takes her place. So, keeping this post short (I am afterall, hijacking remember..) I am going to include a recent picture, my newest stage in the journey to me. Take pictures..document the success of you!!
