Taken on the first day of Spring, 2009.

Embracing the body I was given.

It was the most honest I could possibly be.

This piece is meant to symbolize a new season, and new beginning. It's also meant to show that we, too, can 'bloom' like a garden, if we embrace our life, our bodies, and who we truly are inside.

Hope you enjoy. :)

Best to you all!

Ash | Bottle Bell
