    Count Down to Midway Market

    Just Bloom

    I have been thinking a lot about comparison lately. It seems to be like a sickness sweeping over women everywhere. Last year, I wrote down some of my thoughts about it HERE. I still feel the same as I did then and it makes me ache when I hear my friends and family talk about […]

    If you read about our Highs & Lows, you know it’s been one of those weeks. Well, actually it has been one of those YEARS so far! I just keep thinking that we are getting all the craziness out in the beginning so that the rest of 2013 can be chill. *Knocks on wood* I […]
