Picture Me Imperfect: Shaming and not even realizing it

As we head into the holidays, I can’t help but think about what this season means.  To a lot of people, it’s about holiday parties, big family dinners, secret Santa, Christmas morning around the tree with their kids, and all of the beautiful Christmas lights outside.

Closing Out 2017 Monthly Challenge
