Hi all! I’m Cara Howard:

a new member of the #swlfamily and also a newly married lady! I blog over at The Marvelous Flight of Cara and have been for four years now (I just celebrated my blog’s 4th birthday!); my blog is not only my escape, but a place where ladies can come and relate to an honest and raw author: me! 

It’s taken me quite some time to get to this place of not only being proud of who I am: my emotions, the depression I struggle with, my health battle against fibromyalgia, but really embracing and loving this person that I am becoming. Like a lot of girls, I’ve had to find my worth through pain (and healing) in breakups with guys, but my depression and health has brought an entire battle along with it where I have had to respect my body’s limitations and deem myself worthy for the love of my husband and friends. One lesson I am continually learning and am a huge advocate of is: if you’re not loving and respecting yourself first, nobody else will. So here’s to loving *you!*
