Oh how well we fit
when your legs wrap around mine
under the covers.
In a child’s eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.
Kinfolk Magazine sure knows how to get you excited for Spring! Their 7th volume is sprinkled with flowers and ice cream delicately designed by botanical maven Amy Merrick. Photographer Parker Fitzgerald captures perfectly melted ice cream blended with pastel hues of various Spring flowers.
This unconventional combination is a simple idea executed into a brilliantly vibrant editorial. Now who wants some ice cream?
Yeah I really like her but she doesn't have a thigh gap

i’m open to suggestions! (modern/classical/abstract ANYTHING!)
there are too many rules to try to follow them all. so i’ll just make up my own and see how that goes.
i never want to become someone who doesn’t care. or someone who doesn’t feel.
but sometimes it hurts too much.
i’m sad and scared that i might one day have to raise a daughter in a world where skin and bones is considered more beautiful than a healthy shape. where nice clothes are generally tailored to the tall and skinny. where, no matter how much love, support, and guidance that i give, she may never be satisfied with the body god has blessed her.
but i can understand all these things because i have felt all these things. i look through my tumblr dash and see all these pictures of stick-thin girls and think ‘wow i wish i had her waist line’ or ‘god, why cant my legs be that thin?’ i follow them anyways… and i cannot deny that i inherently think they are beautiful girls. but was i born thinking in that way, or did society raise me to have such a negative self image?
…i can only pray that i can instill in my imaginary future daughter the confidence that she is capable of anything. i can pray that beautiful and loving people will surround her and always remind her that she is nothing less than beautiful. the first step to ensuring that my daughter will have a shot at breaking the stereotypical ‘beautiful’ mold is first to learn to love myself and my body.
