Ms. March?

There are nights when I still dream about it…when I wake up, engulfed in panic.

It takes me a few minutes and just one glance at Craig to get my bearings…to remember that that life is truly far behind me.

But there are so many others who aren’t so lucky to wake up and feel relief wash over them.

I’ve always wished that I could help even one person walk away from violence.

And now, I have been blessed with an amazing opportunity to do just that.

I’m so excited to finally share my news with you.

I’ve been selected to appear in the Blogger Body Calendar for 2012.

All proceeds from this year’s calendar will go to Violence UnSilenced, a site committed to “shedding light on the epidemic of domestic violence and sexual assault by giving its survivors a voice.”

I am elated to be a part of this amazing project.

I am also Ms. March. ;)

    OK, but I can giggle a teeny bit at the thought of Nichole the Pin-Up Girl, right?

    Hee hee!

    Congratulations, you.

    A fabulous opportunity to share your story and help others.

    I am very proud of you.

    Although I may tease you a teeny bit.
