"Within you is the light of a thousand suns. Within you is unimaginable beauty." - Robert Adams Most of us are quite familiar with the phrase, "ask your doctor _________."

Dance Naked Every Day


Tonight I had a naked dance party with my toddler and my infant. This is an almost nightly event in our home. Tonight we danced to some Macklemore songs, including "And We Danced." As I jumped around the room, I let everything go. I flung my body intensely and soaked in the moment. It was [...]
