Embrace Your Body, at first glance I assumed this project was about appearance.  A visit to project reveal.org proved me wrong.  "Embrace" is an exhibit of photos depicting real, local women embracing and loving their bodies and themselves for who they are right now.

When visiting the website, click on, "Diary Reveals" to read the stories of women who overcame their own everyday struggles. These stories inspire with their ordinary, every day realities.  The triumphs of these women are anything but, ordinary!  As a society we must lose this quest for perfection and end the devastating effect on ourselves, our daughters, mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunts and friends.  Ladies, your happiness lies within and with your higher power!  Join the effort and purchase your ticket on projectreveal.org/embrace-your-body/ and attend this photo art exhibit Friday, September 5, 2014 at the Haynie's Corner Art District.

Enjoy live music, hot d'evores, photo booth, cash bar and more!  There will be an event free to girls of all ages Saturday, September 6 from 10:00a.m. To 11:30a.m. All girls must be accompanied by an adult!  RSVP: theprojectreveal@gmail.com by September 1!
