A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I had won a photo shoot in a contest about celebrating self love. Well, I finally want to share the results of that. The photos were shot by the awesome Kahran and Reg from Creative Soul Photography. They made me feel much more at ease than I expected, and it was a great experience. So here goes nothing:
I took this photo of Ja’Naya last weekend when we were playing at the park. It is a great reminder that we have so much to be thankful for. This week, though, our thanks are tenfold. She has officially reached the “maintenance” phase of her treatment! This means that weekly visits to the clinic will be reduced to every other week, then monthly. Regular readers will know how big a deal this is, but for those of you who are new to Green Your Decor, feel free to read about my daughter’s diagnosis and her hair

I’m Jennae Petersen, and I’m a lot of things. A mother, a graphic artist, a connosieur of beautiful interiors and a purveyor of all things design.
