If you live in the Charlotte area, next time you are at SouthPark Mall or in the area, be sure to snag a copy of SouthPark Magazine. I very worked hard on this one, along with an amazing team of individuals, businesses and boutiques, and I am flattered, humbled and excited to be a part the May issue. The below picture is one in the series of images where I get to show off some really amazing clothes from a few of my favorite local boutiques. My oldest son, Hank, now 7, saw the below image come up on my facebook page. I couldn't help but chuckle at his reaction to seeing me dressed up like this. (Let's be honest, I am a working mom of two active boys, the only time I look like this is for a photo shoot. The next closest I come is on Sunday for church, date night or when I am meeting clients, but it is a loooong way off from this.
Hank: Mommy, is that you?
Me: (Excitedly) Yes! What do you think?
Hank: I don't get it. it's weird. Your head looks weird. You look like you are someone else.
Me: Okay, well, does the rest of my body look like me?
Me: Well, then do you at least like my outfit?
Hank: Why would I like it?! I'm not a girl! (Runs upstairs to yell at little brother Worth for singing Let It Go again).
Ahh. The honesty of a child.
