"Menopause Sucks, but Mr. Pants Rocks." - Kali's Story

I am 48 years old and have been fighting menopause. Everyone jokes about menopause and brushes it off like it’s just part of life and every woman goes through it, blah, blah, blah… sure. I hate it. Menopause makes me feel old, fat, undesirable, tired, boring, and just plain sick at times.

Too often, in our society, we as women cut ourselves and each other down. Women and girls are mean to each other; we are overly critical, judgmental, and petty. We take on too much and expect too much of ourselves. We compare ourselves to others into oblivion. Instead, we should be building ourselves up and turning bitter into BETTER. We need to support each other so we can overcome fear and enrich our lives with certainty and truth. We should be complimenting each other, laughing at our flaws, and embracing our amazing selves. Lyndsay, Katya, and MR. PANTS did that for me on Saturday.

I could not wait to get home so I could write to you all and tell you what an amazing experience I had during my photo shoot with Lyndsay and Katya. EVERY single woman should be allowed to experience what you ladies do. I don’t even have product yet and I can’t say enough about your business.

I loved every single minute of it!

A big thanks to Kimberly too, for answering all of my silly questions and easing my mind as we planned and booked my session. I think I spoke with Lori once too… thank you.

My photo shoot was… EMPOWERING, LIBERATING, FUN, and simply AMAZING!

I cannot wait to see my photos. Please know that what you do is a great thing and I am sharing my experience with anyone who will listen.

I will definitely be back for more in the future and am already dreaming of ideas.

By the way… I am IN LOVE with MR. PANTS! I would be so grateful if you could include the cute picture Katia took of him by the elevator in my proofs. He should have a special place hanging somewhere in my office at work! Thank you Lyndsay, for bringing him in for my shoot, it was meant to be…

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You LADIES! It was a true pleasure and a wonderful day.



EVERYONE needs to remember the wisdom of your words: "We should be complimenting each other, laughing at our flaws, and embracing our amazing selves."

We are so happy that Lyndsay, Katya, and MR. PANTS did that for you! You deserve it! (Unfortunately, we could NOT find the Mr. Pants picture anywhere!)
