Happy Tuesday all! I’m SO happy to (finally!!!) announce that I am one of the winners of Redbook Magazine’s Real Women Style Awards! This is such a huge honor for me because I never thought I would ever be in a fashion magazine. I cried so hard when I found out I had been chosen. I remember when I thought I was disgusting and ugly because I was plus size. I’m so grateful that God showed me how to accept my body and stop being ashamed of it. I now have an appreciation of the blessings I’ve been given even on my bad days. My wish is that being in Redbook will inspire one woman to accept her body and celebrate it!
And to think I almost didn’t enter! I had completely forgotten about the contest until the last day to enter and submitted my photos! Thank you Redbook and JCPenney for allowing me to be apart of this awesome opportunity! Check out the other winners here and their blogs. These ladies have some SERIOUS style!
