This moves me.

My friend Chelsea left the November issue of Glamour in my studio a few weeks ago. I am terrible about reading magazines, and I will let them pile up for months. I remembered seeing this photo online, and when it was orginally published in Glamour.

Along with this story - These bodies are beautiful.
