A Message For Our Daughters

What is beauty?

Colour at The Curvy Fashonista Expo - What is Beauty?

Last weekend we participated in The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo, brainchild of fab Atlanta blogger Marie Denee. We were inspired by two days of super-powered body positivity, and joined in on the fun with an impromptu, interactive display on What is Beauty. Guests decorated messages with advice they’d share with their future daughters (or younger selves) on what real beauty is. We got all the feels reading ladies’ candid responses, like “You are more than enough!” and “I feel most beautiful when I embrace my flaws.”

With Back to School in full effect in Atlanta, it’s a great time to reflect on the beauty positive lessons we teach ourselves, and our children.  I’m reminded of an amazing quote my daughter’s preschool class last year shared:

Our Promise to You

We promise you every day that your child will learn something.

Some days they will bring it home in their hands.

Some days they will bring it home in their heads,

and some days they will bring it home in their hearts.

- V. Welk

Have a great week!
