I wanted to say a massive thank you for the immense response to my "Fat Em" post.
For the last couple of days, I've had women responding through comments on the post, as well as writing to me on Facebook and on Twitter to discuss their experiences and situations. For some reason, my blog doesn't have comment "replies" enabled which makes it hard for me to respond directly to everyone, but I did want to let you all know: I read EVERYTHING on this blog that comes through from you to me. I've been overwhelmed by the respect and support you have shown me, but also by the experiences YOU have shared with me. Many of you - have made me quite tearful as you've shared your stories.
I love that people found the story in my post quite kindred to their own - I genuinely believe there is strength in being together and discussing experiences. I also love that many of you have told me you've found hope in my post as regards your life and what you might be looking for. It makes me emotional (in the good way).
I took a few days to write that post and then a couple more to decide if I would actually post it. I even asked Darcy to proof it for me, because I felt good about what I'd written - but self conscious too.
When I started my blog, I never expected to connect with people so much - and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for helping me and letting me do that.
I appreciate all of you who read the blog, so much.
Fashion Wise - Well, this last week - I only did one lovely fashion post, and that was over at Inside Chic. I actually LOVE the photos, which we took out and about in London last weekend...
Blacks & Reds. In London. In City Chic.
ALSO - There is a GIANT week ahead! I've tried some of the latest pieces from Anna Scholz's Spring Summer Season - so those posts are coming. All I can say is FIERCE!
Thank you again, my loves. After the overwhelming response earlier this year when I posted on Plus Brides, I didn't think I could feel such emotions because of my blog again (or, at least - not for a long time). Thank you, thank you!
