A proper farewell.

I remember the moment like it was yesterday, when the reality of what we were doing truly set in. I nearly crumbled.

In June I flew to Denver to have a very special set of fine art nudes done by my very good friend and talented photographer, Lynn Clark.  We were photographing what would be the last photos ever taken of my breasts as I was scheduled for a double mastectomy in July.

Now, almost 2 months post-op and cancer-free, I am halfway through the 'reconstruction' of my body and my mind and I want to share a little about my experience as I cherish the beauty of what was and look beyond my scars and learn to love what is.
