I hope you embrace it all, my beautiful friend: your body, your heart, your mind, your dreams . . .
I hope you learn to stand up for yourself even if your voice shakes. I hope you learn to be proud of your body and your mind even if they have imperfections . . .
Embrace yourself inside and out, imperfections and all.
Let go of the images of who you thought you should be, and start looking at all of the beautiful things that already are.
Because at the end of it all . . . Y O U have to be the first one to embrace yourself and everything that makes you so w o n d e r f u l l y you. 🌎✨⭐️💫💕☺️
Let’s be real when we regroup and say this year has been hard . . . REALLY hard. And, we would be fibbing to ourselves if we said it’s not going to get EVEN harder.
If you’re in the Baltimore City, Maryland area where we’re located, bars, restaurants, and indoor facilities in general are required to *almost* start over from the beginning and are required to reduce their capacity levels and active guests to 25% of their occupancies.
As some of you may, or may not, know . . . myself and my hubby own a local bar & restaurant in the small town of Federal Hill in Baltimore City, MD (yes, – for those of you that know me . . . can you believe I’ve fully evolved to being a CITY girl ?!?!).
It’s been both a challenging and uniting year for the two of us. Through the ups and downs, I think we’ve almost found strength in not only those that are going through similar battles and challenges with us, but also the incredible and supportive community that surround and supports us.
One thing I can never be thankful ENOUGH for . . . are the folks that have continued to tune in, follow, and support me on this crazy journey of ours (and how much I strive to maintain a normal perceived life and posting cadence!).
Know that I appreciate ALL of the love, ALL of the concern, ALL of the support, and am doing my best to continue and maintain a positive life perspective for sharing with you <3.
Fingers crossed that we push through this second round of the challenging road ahead and keep ourselves and our loves ones safe during these turbulent times.
Sending much, MUCH love to all reading –
