30 Strangers Opening Reception

My friend Justin Hackworth is holding an opening reception for his portrait exhibit, the 2011 30 Strangers in 30 Days on Friday, July 15th. 

I love this project: portraits of mothers and daughters across generations in an unguarded moment.

It seems like every year Justin happens to photograph women that I know and love, even though they are strangers to him. I don't know how that happens, but I do groove on the serendipity. 

The women above? Well, let's just say that I wouldn't be the person I am today had the woman on the left not forced me to grow up and become a responsible human. She taught me to be a leader. And that looking your best is always important. And more lessons than I can't even articulate in one blog.

Justin asked me, along with some other great women, to speak about motherhood at the opening reception. Will you think about coming? I promise to write something new, never before heard, possibly genius, more likely slightly incoherent, just for the occasion. You can even see how I no longer look pregnant with twins! (Instead, I look only 4 months pregnant with a regular baby.)

You'll be there? Good.
