I wanted to share this all with you, Dear Ones —

Every year since 1974, the woman in this photo (Lucy Hilmer) has taken a photograph of herself in her white lollipop underwear, socks and shoes. She will be turning 70 in 2015, and plans to keep up the tradition for as long as she's alive — documenting the transitions in her body year after year, with candor and self-affection.

I think she's wonderful and beautiful, every single year.

Thought you all might enjoy this great act of feminine self-expression…
