Stuff I Sort of Like About Myself

Most people who know me will know that I don’t particularly give myself an easy time when it comes to how I look.

Post Wedding Blues: Why It’s Okay to Have Them | The Wedding Series

These quarterly reviews sure come around quickly. I can’t believe that the next time I’ll be writing one will be at the end of the year. To be honest, I genuinely didn’t expect to have kept my blog up for this long, so I’m quite proud of that achievement.
