I was searching through my files today and found one of the most amazing gifts I have ever received. It was given to me at a particularly tough time in my life and has brightened many of my days ever since.
My friend designed this for me, incorporating a photo of me with Wonder Woman. Those are the Chanel eyeglasses I wore everyday at the time. The artist and friend wanted to lift my spirits and compliment my 'colorful' character.
Doesn't she (me) look confident, brave and persevering?
Although Wonder Amanda looks pretty tough, this design reminds me of how conflicted, frustrated and stressed I felt at that time in my life. However, it also reminds me that a talented, giving and beautiful woman stood by me through it.
