    You posted some really inspirational posts that I did need to read. My mentality and emotions have been off tune this week and you really did help! Plus, you posted some amazing recipes. Thank you! 🙂

    Awww, thanks for the link love, lady!! And omg, that post by Lucie!! Amazing! So raw and honest and just…great! She’s helping so many people with that! I also really liked that guest post on Kath’s blog…brings back some haunting memories, but actually serves as a reminder to me JUST how far I’ve come! 🙂

    I got Portland, Oregon! And like I said when I posted it to my FB, if ONLY they saw more sunshine there…I don’t think I could take all the gray days and dreary weather…especially with this curly hair! Ha! What did you get?

      For whichever reason I got Paris though – don’t get me wrong here – that wouldn’t exactly be my favourite place to live. Visit yes but actually live there? No. Granted, I generally associate France with some unpleasant memories so that plays into it, too.
      When posts like this only serve as reminders you really see how far you’ve come – and you have come very far. So happy for you, lady!
