LOVE YOURSELF, NO REALLY
This is me, my body, after twins and a total of four children in four years. When I started The Pine Torch, I was nearly 290 pounds with babies, a business that I had built choosing to spend my last $250 on baby food or a heat press, a full-time job, and facing absolute failure. I was literally pumping every last ounce of energy and hope out of my body. While fighting about who was a worse parent, my 2.5-year-old escaped through the garage and was found running alongside the highway. That is the day I decided I was done. I would quiet the noise and love myself...no really. All of myself. I would find a way to provide for my children. I would lose the excess weight. I would be the mother my kids needed. Today.
