I’ve never been very good at keeping a secret. If you’re planning a surprise birthday party or an engagement or any other event that needs to be kept under wraps, it’s probably best not to tell me. I have a very serious case of Foot-in-Mouth Syndrome (also known as Yente Disorder). And yet, somehow I managed to keep this one to myself (it was not easy, ya’ll). For weeks I’ve known about this project but was unable to share the news.
TODAY I can very proudly make the announcement.
I will be Ms. May, one of the featured bloggers in the 2012 Blogger Body Calendar!
I am beyond thrilled that I was even considered to be among so many brilliant and inspiring women for this project. This year’s theme is “Survivor and Strength” and all proceeds for the calendar go to Violence UnSilenced, a wonderful charity devoted to providing the help/support that women in domestic abuse situations desperately need.
I would like to extend a very special thank-you to my very talented and dear friend Shar of Movements by Shar who photographed me for the calendar (check out more of her work here). She takes some seriously amazing photographs, and most importantly, she really helped me relax in front of the camera. She also moonlights as a videographer. And she choregraphs and dances. Look her up if you’re in the tri-state area and tell her Charlotte sent you.
Here are some pictures from our shoot. FYI, these photos will not be in the calendar. You’ll have to purchase and donate to this worthy cause to see!
