    Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. 

    So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason.

    This may be the happiest I’ve ever been to write a post. Last year, as many of you probably remember, we held a crowdfunding campaign to help a family with adoption fees. The Watkins family had already adopted an eight year old daughter from Ethiopia. They were so happy with their new family, they decided to adopt a ten year old boy named Rabuma, who they had discovered in an orphanage. They knew that Rabuma was destined to be their new son, but were heartbroken because they didn’t have the money to bring him home yet. 4,000 of you donated to help make this family a reality. Over the past year, the Watkins have been sending me periodic updates, but I didn’t want to share them because I didn’t want to jeopardize the process. But everything just finalized. By a beautiful coincidence, the Watkins happened to pick up Rabuma while I was in Africa. So between destinations, I took a two hour detour to Ethiopia to photograph the occasion. It was such an honor for me to be present at the birth of this new family. The love that had already developed between them just filled the room.

    At the beginning of this year I decided that I wanted to lose weight. I have always been very active but I had the most atrocious diet and was prone to binging so I quickly piled on weight as a child and young teen. 

    Fast forward to August and I have dropped 10 kg (22 lbs) and am regularly doing weights training and cardio while maintaining a healthy diet. I don’t binge anymore and I am so much happier than I was! 

    I am currently working on gaining more muscle definition and losing fat. 

    Height: 5’4”

    Starting weight: 76 kg (167 lbs)

    Current weight: 66 kg (145 lbs)

    Goal weight: ???
