Hi Emily,Very nice pictures of America's Next Top Model 2011 and her handsome son!!!My thoughts after reading the last bloggings is that a lot of people when they stop drinking are almost euforic in the beginning. At the end of the day the succes is coping with yourself and life without hiding behind a bottle.And life is what it is. The only most important impact is how you deal with it.I have been looking at my photo's when I was travelling in Egypt. I was already sober for years. I looked energetic, happy and kind.Then I looked at pictures in the years of relapses when I was maybe two to six weeks without alcohol. My eyes were not sparkling anymore but looked anxious and very tired.No matter what is going to happen I never want to see myself on a photo like that anymore.Today I am going to celebrate a happy not-drinking day!Love & Light
Hi, Anon -- I don't have the years of sobriety that you have as I'm only in my second week, but I'm already amazed at how much better I feel physically and psychologically. To think it gets better with time is wonderful!And Emily, I love your new photo! WOW! In relation to Anon's comment above, do you have a "before" photo you can share?And you must be so proud of your son -- what a fine looking young man! I'm assuming he's in school band and this photo was taken before or after a concert?Hope everyone has a great day!
One more thing I forgot to mention, Emily -- I also really like how your blog now has a much lighter background instead of black. This gives it a much happier and lighter "feel". :)
Beautiful picture of you Emily!! You look so peaceful. Your son is a cutie!!
