Sunday Lately #121

Sunday Lately  is a weekly linkup hosted by the Blogger Tribe, which is led by the powerhouse duo Katy (Wild and Wanderful) & Angelica (Gardening in High Heels).  We e-hangout every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the past week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us!

This week’s themes: Laughing, Suggesting, Reminding, Embracing, Creating.

It’s been a few Sundays since I last joined in on this weekly linkup. Time to jump back into it!

Laughing-I spent a lot of time laughing with the kids during Sunday School today. We were talking about last Sunday of how nice the Easter service was and one of them told me I was left behind. I looked at him and asked, “What do you mean by that?”

“I was left behind in the parking lot.”


“Because of that idiot right there!”-he pointed at his older brother. Older brother just grins.

“He told Nana that I was in the car and I wasn’t!  I just stood in the lot and watched them drive off. They went down the street and turned the corner before I saw her stop and a minute later she was back.”

“Well that’s good she came back for you.”

“She didn’t come back for me! She came back to give the preacher a card. She didn’t even know I wasn’t in the car until she pulled into the parking lot!”

Cue laughter.

Suggesting-Go outside and take a walk. Enjoy the beauty of spring.

Reminding-Myself that it’s okay to do something for yourself. More on that in the next theme…

Embracing-Your inner self confidence and loving the body you have.  Yesterday was my day to go to Morgantown for the boudoir photo session I had booked a month ago. I was nervous but the second I walked into the studio and finally met Jodi it all went away. She was amazing and I felt completely comfortable. We talked a bit while I was getting my hair and makeup done and the next thing I knew it was time to start. I time went by so fast and one thing I found myself thinking was ‘I’m totally owning my sensuality right now.’ And then she let me see a couple of the pictures and I was blown away. I could see my self confidence shining through. I can’t wait to get the sneak peek email from her soon. I did this entire session for me.


Creating-a new playlist full of songs that remind me of someone quite special. He makes me happy and I haven’t been this happy in a long time.

Self Confidence

Yesterday I mentioned that I recently made the decision to do something that will boost my self positivity and self confidence. This morning I received a phone call that set the ball in motion to do it.

What comes to your mind when I say the word boudoir? Black and white photography? Lingere? Does the word alone make you frown?

To me I find it a way for me to boost my self confidence. Not everyone will agree with me on this and that’s okay. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect that.

As I was looking through the photographer’s work that I’ve chosen I feel that she is able to capture sensuality in an elegant way. And if you’re thinking does that mean you’re going to be nude the entire time the answer is no. Just wearing a flannel shirt & cozy socks can be alluring. When I asked what kind of clothing would I be made to wear the response is what won me over. I can bring what makes me feel sexy. She asked do you have a flannel shirt? A jean jacket? Sometimes the most common everyday clothing items can be transformed into something seductive. After talking to Jodi this morning I feel so much more confident about this afternoon I found the quote that is the featured image at the top. I’m accepting me for all of me, including my scars that I absolutely despise, and I will revel in it.
