I just got home from the "first look" party, and it was pretty amazing. I have a multitude of thanks to send to many people, which I will do as soon as I catch my breath and a few ZZZZs.
My first look in the mirror was great. I was nervous. It was a little bit awkward (a lot of people were there!), but I liked what I saw, and I felt incredibly supported by my friends and family. More soon!
