Love Of A Lifetime

I am on a mission to fall in love with myself. 
You see, I want to love myself the way that I love my Daniel and Bono Baby.
I want to feel and look the way I do in this photo.
So, here's my request: what would be the first thing you would do to jump start a love affair with yourself?  

I need to make a list.
Falling in love shouldn't be this tricky.

Fritzi Marie 

I read this the other night and I can't let it go.

"Have you ever noticed how women are their most attractive just after they have fallen in love?  There is something that happens that relaxes the face, you laugh more, you are happy, you emanate a warm confidence.  When you're single, the trick is to find that confidence in yourself before you fall in love.  To do this, what you need-and this may sound corny, but it's true-is to fall in love with yourself."

You are so adorable. Whatever you do to show Dan and Bono baby that you love them, is what you should do for yourself. You deserve it.
I'm glad you're back safe from California. I've missed your sweet posts.
Love to you!

Falling in love with yourself is definitely tricky. I've been having a hard time with this myself. Right now I am just trying to see the lovely in each day. It's a small step but it's helping a little.

I'm all about wooing myself. There are times the hubby is busy that I decide I need to go out for a nice dinner by myself and a book. Or just to have a sexy bubble bath with wine or champagne - not for him, but for me. Light the candles. Buying myself or collecting fresh cut flowers on occasion. Even on the days where I'm just in tshirt and jeans wearing some sexy lingerie just so that I know under the plain jane look that I'm a vixen. making some affirmations, or love notes, and leaving them for me to find in the future.

Dear Kat,
You are stunningly beautiful.
I know exactly what you are talking about. When I need to jumpstart "falling in love with myself," I go for really long walks. Noticing everything around me makes me feel...I don't know, it's just a way I only feel when I go for long walks. I bought myself flowers on the way home, and carrying them back also felt beautiful.
Know that you are lovely! You deserve to be completely in love with yourself. :)

you are SO INSPIRING! just so you know.

i have been getting back to the gym-- just because life is too short not to be able to enjoy the sweets in life and because not only does the stairmaster really kick my arse that it makes me want to cry after i survive 30 minutes -- but i want to also cry because i "made it"-- i pushed myself and it makes me ultimately feel better when i'm singing in the shower "go me!" lol

so THANK YOU for this honest post, thankyou for the beautiful quote because i have always believed that-- i have never been so out of shape in my life and after celebrating my 27th birthday i'm feeling older BUT... i have never FELT more beautiful than becoming my husband's wife.

and if it helps you, i'm completely in LOVE with you! ;)

esp in your gorgeous dress.

I have loved you since before you were born. What a special spirit you brought into our home. Being a first time mother you added a new dimension to the person I was and the person that I now am. Your dad said that I would truly add to my very "being" when I became a mother. For me, that statement has been true. You children are my utmost joy. May you and Dan be blessed with such joy. As you seek to love yourself more, know always how dearly and eternally that I love you, your dad, your siblings and Daniel. I feel that for this purpose I was sent to earth.......and what a joy it is. I love you now and forever. Your Mother....."Mommy"

i absolutely adore your mom - loving what she wrote! my picks for falling in love with myself: manicure, pedicure, lunch at my favorite restaurant, discovering a great used book store, the perfect cup of strong coffee or tea with milk in the afternoon, a new lipstick, trashy tv, and dreaming about where i want to go when i finally get my passport! you are amazing.

You are so, so beautiful Kitty Kat! You are easy to love! It's crazy how the relationship we have with ourselves can be the most difficult, most complicated one. There are good days and bad days just like any relationship and I wish you more good days :) xoxo

I love to see what you are up to every day - thank you for sharing your life so honestly, you are fabulous. I remember you once said you were speaking in church so I assume you go often - I find reading the bible - all my favourite bits, like the proverbs - especially Proverbs Chapter 31 - about women and what makes a good one, helps me to keep doing the many things as a wife and mother, colleague and friend, and creative person, I should be. Learning to be content is a great reward. Hugs from Aus, Trish
