I was dared...

I was planning on joining in on a Frugal Friday linky party tomorrow, but when I saw Crystal's post it got me thinking about a lot of things.
So, here is a picture of me. For reals. No make-up. No photo-shopping. Hair back in a ponytail. A baby around my neck.
I realize this blog post really is a message to myself. Those two eyes up there...one is green and one is blue, but they allow me to see all the beautiful things around me. My body has produced four beautiful and healthy babies, so what's a few stretchmarks?
I am beautiful, just the way God made me.
...and so are you:)

You look so good without makeup! I think people with two different eye colors are so unique. My cousin has two different eye colors and she too is beautiful. I just read your previous post and am my way to go visit her!
