I hope your Sunday is off to a good start so far! The last few mornings out here have been beautiful, glad-to-be-alive kinds of mornings and today was no exception. I’m still loving being in this little, unique house, especially in the early morning.
Despite the fact that I have been entirely engrossed in the book Gone Girl this week, I did manage to find some things worth checking out online, and I’m linking up with Amanda to share them with you. Enjoy!

Yes, Yes, and YES. In all honesty, I felt quite ashamed of developing an eating disorder. I mean, I’m a feminist. I have a college degree. I studied social work, which included classes in women’s studies and abnormal psychology, for crying out loud. If there’s one thing I’ve learned through this process, it’s that eating disorders do not discriminate. I suffer from an eating disorder despite the fact that I “should know better,” and I am most definitely not alone in that.

To genuinely apologize takes strength and courage, and I know that we all appreciate receiving apologies when they are called for. Personally, I am trying to work on having the courage and humility to admit my wrongdoings and apologize for them.
Every second of every day is a part of our life. We fill it with whatever we choose.
Yes! I’ve missed you, Marcel.
Essentially, the outcome of every craft I have ever attempted.
This is a beautiful reflection on evaluating self-criticism and how it impacts our children.
That sums up this week’s worthwhile reads! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
