Changing the Face Of Beauty

Doing the #voguechallenge with a slightly different spin to it…..
For those that might not know what it is, creatives on social media are posting their ideas of what a cover model looks like and using the hashtag #voguechallenge.  I’ve seen some super creative, artistic, and unique ones already in the few weeks it has been going on!
A few days after posting our #voguechallenge on Instagram, Some Good News re-shared the picture which was just incredible!  We were so excited by the amount of support for the picture but also for the meaning behind it.
Because when you think about it…..
How amazing would it be for us to get to a place where Callie could routinely see someone that looks like her on a cover of a magazine?
Or in a TV show?
In a movie?
In a commercial?
On a billboard?

What if, it wasn’t a unique circumstance….but more of a regularity?
What if it wasn’t just a “disabled person” on the cover….but just a person, who happened to have a disability?
What if…..we changed what the definition of strength was?
What if we changed who we held up as a “super model”?
What if we got to a place where someone that looks like Callie could hold the same high coveted role that we give to swimsuit models?
What if we got to a place where Callie could take up the same amount of space that able bodied people do?  In all forms of media?
What if we changed the definition of beauty was?
One step at a time?
Representation matters.

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
