My Lovely Lady Lumps…

February 21, 2006

Ok, ok. I officially apologize. I really do HATE that song, but I couldn’t think of a better way to describe what I was up to this past weekend.

As some of you are aware, I’m a 36-year-old, single mother of two. Just like every other woman, I have body issues. My breasts aren’t as perky and firm as they once were, my ass not as round and high, my legs…don’t even get me started….

So, what did I do? I did what every self-conscious, single mother with stretch marks would do, I hired a professional photographer and make-up artist and had nude portraits done. Yes, people. Nude. Completely naked. No clothes. Birthday suit.

Can I just say that this experience was one of the most memorable of my life. It left me feeling sexy, vibrant, and more confident than I have ever felt in years! Now, these pictures are not for anyone’s viewing pleasure, just for me. So that when I’m an 80-year-old grandmother, sitting on my front porch in a rocking chair, with my teeth in a cup of water, I can pull out these pictures and think, “man, I was one hot mama!!”
