A while back I spoke briefly about a special little project titled “Frida Kahlo, my love” and I am so excited to finally share it with you guys! Anyone who knows me, knows that Frida has a special place in my heart. As a little girl I was always drawn to her because of her bold and colorful paintings. The more I learned about her, the more I fell in love with her. The pain this woman endured was one thing but what she did with that pain was another. She endured more in her short life than most people will ever have to face but she still accomplished so much. She was the epitome of strength and perseverance and she taught me that no matter what life throws your way, you’re the one who is always in control of it. I just wanted to end this with one of my favorite Frida quotes xoxo moni
“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” -Frida Kahlo –
