Melissa's 40 over 40 Story
Probably just getting started with it. I feel like once we get going, I'll be fine!
Because I feel that too much focus is put on women as we age to "look younger." What happened to embracing our flaws and aging gracefully? That's what I'm all about.
Because I want to feel beautiful in my own skin. After two kids, my body has changed and I think this shoot will give me the confidence to finally love and accept the changes.
More confidence in myself!
I'm excited to let my guard down and feel confident and sexy.
Enjoy every single moment! Take nothing for granted and tell those you love that you do indeed love them.
That I came out ok! I had a failed marriage in my 20s and at the time, it was devastating. My thirties were great because I met the REAL love of my life and had my two sons. Life does get better!!
My mother. She has taught me everything I know. Her love and support is unwavering. She never judges. She's always there when I need someone. She's my best friend and my biggest cheerleader.
Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Exfoliate!
On my wedding day!! One of the best days of my life!!
I moved to Chicago by myself in 2011, not knowing anyone, after I graduated with my MBA. I consider both of those personal accomplishments that have taught me so much and have guided me to the beautiful life I live now.
Kind, Optimistic, Fiery
