Personally I quite like the laugh picture... Maybe you can't see what I can see... To you it may look horrendous, or some such... but I can see a person who's happiness is shining through, it's a beautiful person there.
Oh, my!! You lot made me feel all emotional!! Lovely sentiment Snanna, but you are too kind really - but your model comment did make me giggle!
LS - thanks for those lovely words, coming from you they mean a lot! My name was just from always loving the name Poppy, and when I was trying to find a username for something they were all taken and I just kept going through 'pretty' words until I came up with one that wasn't taken! My real life name is Nikki by the way!! LOL!!
I'm so chuffed with your comments, and believe me, I can truly see and feel the complete change in me and do appreciate it! That night, although I might have looked confident, and although I did have a really good time out with my work colleagues, I recall us going on to a few bars in Liverpool and standing and trying to be invisible while my friends were chatted up. I loved the meal while it was just us girls, but hated the pubs because I felt very self conscious!
Thanks again girls, because you really are an inspirational and supportive lot!! This journey has been 100% easier with the help of Minis!!
Poppy - you did look great that night! You look like someone who loves life, and has a very happy inner child alive and well!! As SB said, you just look better now, but you were beautiful then too. Sometimes photos capture the true essence of someones spirit and sometimes they don't. Yours do.
Poppy - I have to agree with everyone else - you did look great that night - full of energy, life and fun. You are a start to have achieved all you have. I'm sure you are still full of energy, life and fun - just in a different body that adds a lot of extra confidence as well. You look great. Inspirational. xx
