Bliss: July

What does Bliss mean to you?  To me, Bliss means anything that just makes me smile ear-to-ear; my favorites; what I'm loving right then and there.  Each month, Heather and I host Bliss on the last Wednesday of each month for other bloggers to showcase whatever it is that's making them happy that month.  Use #bloggerbliss to share your favorite photos on Instagram and Twitter, and link up with us below!

This time for Bliss, we invited our ladies to do something a little bit different.  Have you seen that "Five Photos That Make Me Feel Beautiful" Challenge floating around on Facebook recently?  Well we thought that Bliss and beauty go hand-in-hand, so this month, we want to see what makes y'all the confident, beautiful, successful ladies you are!

#1 My first half marathon: I proved to myself that I could put my mind to it and accomplish a huge goal.  This photo was total elation.

#2 The moment I knew that it was true love.  The moment that I knew how special this was.  This was right before I went to Paris to study abroad and we spent an amazing day at the beach together, and I just remember feeling so beautiful and loved.

#3 My college graduation: parents, purple hair, and a plan.  I did it!  And even more than that, I took a bigger chance and a step into a career I now can't imagine my life without.

#4 Golf: my passion and my life's work.

And #5 Me: It's taken me a long time to realize I'm not the girl I was in high school.  Two weeks ago when we were in Maine, my girl Shannon snapped this photo of me: no makeup, messy hair after swimming across the lake and back, and comfy clothes.  This IS me.  I'm not perfect, but I am beautiful.  This is who I am and I finally am really, truly, starting to love myself.
