my smart/wise/talented/funny/sweet/spirited/beautiful friend anda took some photos of carson and me celebrating a saturday together. 

i know engagement announcements bring up mixed feelings; they do for me. all the pain and injustice in the world can break you down, i’m going to celebrate this joy while i can and be grateful, very very grateful. and i’ll try to fight the good fight.

i want to celebrate this man, taking our time and doing it our own way and knowing that one day we can all marry our true love.

you can see more of our saturday together here: http://www.andamarie.net/2013/12/17/stephanie-carson-in-madison-wi/

"I will teach my daughter not to wear her skin like a drunken apology. I will tell her ‘make a home out of your body, live in yourself, do not let people turn you into a regret, do not justify yourself. If you are a disaster it is not forever, if you are a disaster you are the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen. Do not deconstruct from the inside out, you belong here, you belong here, not because you are lovely, but because you are more than that.’"

— Azra T. “Your hands are threads, your body is a canvas” (via thatkindofwoman)
