Good good reads #26

Hello there! Are you still feeling all lovey-dovey after a sweet sweet Friday or weekend with your Valentine? Or experiencing a sugar high from treating yourself to a box of chocolates and a romantic movie? Either are good in my opinion. My weekend so far was spent packing for my move. Marveling at how much I’d brought with me and newly aquired during such a short time [really?!]. So no big stories to tell but even more great favourite posts from the week to share so here it goes!

Happy Sunday!

    Oooh I haven’t checked out the Valentines day bake-off – I think I mentioned everywhere that I live under a rock when it comes to the blog world ;)..heading there now :). Heather’s post was magnifecinto! I don’t think my anger issues is really ‘me’. And I always feel guilty for feeling a sense of anger when it comes to certain things, at the people I live with who loves me so. Aaah well..
    Good luck with moving. Hope everything goes smoothly 🙂

      I’ll pretend I hadn’t heard what you said about not noticing the Bake-Off yet 😉 .
      It’s hard to understand how much our EDs affect people around us so I think it’s normal to be angry when we don’t feel understood. At the same time I try to see the points they make and then decide what I feel is right for me.
      Happy Sunday!
