Facebook memories catch me off guard sometimes… 4 years ago today I was happily kicking around Charleston SC and bought my wedding dress… for a wedding that would never happen. A lot has changed since then…

Share this on Twitter

(1) I realized today it doesn’t hurt my heart anymore to look at these photos of wedding dress shopping. And, (2) as some of you know, the dress has found a new purpose traveling the globe this year, in helping me to encourage other women via public speaking & workshops in their own #healing and facing painful truths. #forgiveness Happy Monday, ladies… love you lots! xo
