TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What’s the story behind the scar you have?

  • My 1st son's heartbeat dropped borderline cardiac arrest while I was in labor, so I had an emergency c- section to save his life. Had 3 more beautiful babies after that through c-sections as well (my youngest is just about 3 months old)
  • 14 stitches from the corner of my eye all the way up into my eyebrow after doing a face dive over the handlebars of my bike. I was a sophomore in high school and it was the day after class pictures were taken. That was the last photo of me without my scar on my face.
