About MFL

When I was younger, my mom used to always tell me, “A face without freckles is like a sky without stars”. I never believed her. I hated my freckles. I hated that my friends had the cute summer sprinkling of dots across their noses and my face (well my whole body in fact) was more freckle than not. Whenever we had to have nicknames for sports teams or summer camps, mine was inevitably “freckles” – how creative. It was my defining feature and I hated it.
I’d be lying if I said that I’ve since learned to love my freckled features. But my freckles and I have begun to come to a mutual understanding, and I’m learning to appreciate them. To recognize the fact that having a defining feature isn’t the worst thing in the world. People remember my face more often because of them. People who have no freckles tell me that they wish that they were as lucky as I am. I’ve begun to accept them as part of what makes me unique and different.

So what does “My Freckled Life” mean?

It is a way to document my journey to learning to love myself and find a healthy balance in the world. To learn to accept all of myself, freckles
included, by working towards a lifestyle of healthy eating, exercising, and taking the time to de-stress and enjoy life. All while working a
crazy-scheduled job, training a new puppy, and planning a wedding. It’s definitely no easy task, but I’m hoping that this blog will allow me an
outlet for ideas, frustrations, and a means a holding myself accountable.

So what sort of things will you see on the blog?

To be honest, I’m not really sure yet. I’m sure it’s going to be a mix of all the things that I am trying to focus on in my own life – things like
healthy eating, exercising, and ways of de-stressing – as well as the things that are a huge part of my life, like wedding planning, crafts, and
random obsessions. Oh, and I’m sure there are going to be lots of puppy pictures because I’m kind of obsessed…
