My mum sent me this photo the other day. That's her on the left. Sixteen and barefoot on the beach, no husband or kids on the horizon just yet. Dreaming of travel abroad, maybe art school in Paris or studying the Italian Masters in Rome. Young, happy and carefree. A bright shining girl.

I am a strong and independent woman. I am hard working and self-sufficient. I might be a little bit MORE stubborn than my mom, and I certainly don't go looking for conflict, but if it arises I will stand my ground. In many ways, I am exactly like my mom, and in those many ways that makes me proud.
