  1. Thanks for the shout-out :)

  2. I loved the ED Bites article. I REALLY loved "But a women isn’t solely a mother. She’s a person, too, with all of the quirks and foibles and everything else that we all have, so we really don’t need all the shock that someone with a child can also have an eating disorder." While I may not engage in my ED behaviors every day, that still takes a lot of pressure and feelings of selfishness away in so many avenues of life. While being a parent is absolutely the all-consuming focus of my life, I'm still a person on my own and make mistakes with myself and my child, and that is OKAY! :) Thank you for this! Enjoy your long weekend!

  3. Can I just say that I LOVE the addition of the "Infertility/Miscarriage" category. <<<Ok, now that I typed that out, I realize that it's a really weird thing to love. Heh. :)

    I passed along the "One Year" post to a friend who was very much encouraged by those words. And it could not have come at a better timing because said friend and I JUST had a conversation about her struggle with miscarriage.
