I hope you don't mind more Natalie pictures. :)
With all your curves and rolls.
I know it's easy to forget that.
It's easy to focus on what we perceive as flaws.
We try to shape, mold, cover up, squeeze,
Now that can all be good fun, as long as we know, that underneath it all...we really are beautiful just as we are.
I hope my little Natalie will always know that.
Me and Nat, we chat often as we go about our day...when we play, while I work, when I'm dressing her. The question I most often ask her, is "How come you're so beautiful?" Because she is.
Her beauty causes me to pause in awe...daily. I often can't believe that I have the privilege of being her mother. Her smile radiates goodness and reminds me that we all started life as these little amazingly, beautiful human beings...and that we still are amazingly, beautiful human beings.
I know that we can't all have gorgeous, baby soft skin like Natalie; but we can love and nourish the skin we're in.
Dove has a great new Visible Care Body Wash program to help you do just that.
Now, I know I have been doing a few sponsored posts lately. I want you to know that I only do sponsored posts for companies I really believe in, or a product I am honestly enthused about.
And, I honestly love Dove products. The basic white Dove bar is the only thing I'll use on my kids' sensitive, eczema prone skin; and their deodorant is the only kind I use.
So when Dove sent me a product from their new Visible Care Body Wash program, I was excited to try it.
The Dove Renewing Body Wash is so creamy and soft on my skin. It has bumped my regular bar of soap routine up to a luxurious level. It feels like I'm treating myself without having to make any extra sacrifice of time, which is a big plus.
In addition to the Renewing Body Wash, Dove has two other body washes in it's new line:
Dove Visible Care Toning Creme Body Wash and Softening Body Wash.
