What Makes You Feel Like You?

I am a loyal reader of Glamour Magazine and recently got around to reading their January Self Expression issue where they posed a question that I decided to ask myself..."What makes you feel like YOU?"  I'm sure my answer will not shock you...

 {2 of my 3 kiddos celebrating Valentine's Day at Walker's elementary school.}

My answer would be a combo of  : Having my FAMILY around + Having my MAKEUP on

After giving this question some thought, I knew it wasn't as simple of an answer as putting on my favorite pair of jeans.  Because those jeans wouldn't feel very good if I couldn't run around with my kids in them AND it wouldn't matter how good they fit if I had a bare colorless face!

All of these pics are from Valentine's Day yesterday, which ended up being a really great day filled with love from all of my family plus it was a really good makeup day:)  Even the lady at the McDonald's drive thru complimented me on my lip color!!  There's nothing like a random compliment to brighten a girls day.

MAC lipglass in "Full Speed Ahead"

 {Seriously, this is how Vivian checks herself out in the mirror. I can't handle the cuteness.}

So when it comes to my husband and my kids, it's them that make me feel like the me I want to be!  I found this inspiring love note off of ToriSpelling.com (which on a side note, is really great, I LOVE her even more now than I did during the 90210 days!) that sums up how my family makes me feel when I'm around them...

When I'm with them, they make me better and feel like me...plus a little lipgloss...

Now I throw the question back to you, "What makes you feel like YOU?"

You and Viv looked so lovely on v-day! Hmmm this is an interesting question! I would say I feel the most "me" when I'm around my daughter or when I'm creating something! Happy weekend!:)

Love Viv's posing haha! So cute!
It is an interesting question for sure. I've noticed that ageing has made me feel more like me, can you believe it? At 46 I no longer have the same worries I did when I was younger and am more relaxed now about everything. :)

@Rachel - Creating something - awesome! I'd agree.
@Tracy - I totally agree, even at 35 I'm feeling more confident and relaxed about myself than ever.

It's a great question! As much as I have put my foot down to keep my carefree dancing spirit independent, I find that I am truly the best me when I have my kids and my hubby close by. There's a great peace in family love...

As always you have such great posts! Love you blog!!!
