This week I decided to mix it up and post some things that have been sitting in my Reader for a while. I have a tendancy to save posts that 1) I need to reference back to 2)I haven’t gotten a chance to read yet 3)or posts that were so awesome I “starred” them because I didn’t know what else to do with them. Now that I have this weekly post, I figured I’d go back into my Reader history and share some of the posts that have been hanging out in there.
I love Becky’s DIY balloon wreath. She posted some directions on how to make it, and she “claims” she isn’t crafty, and that anyone can do this. I think she is quite crafty and should give herself some more credit!
Molly, the founder of Stratejoy wrote something called the 12 Rules of Inner Confidence. I think it is a great read for anyone. Take some time to really think about how you feel about each one of the topics.
I loved this post Ashley wrote about a scar on her foot. I’ve always thought it was so interesting how our bodies represent our journey over time. I have scars, freckles, tattoos, strech marks. They all represent something, so I really appreciated this post of hers.
I’d like to consider myself a feminist. I know one fantastic feminist- Renee- and I agree with much of what she says and writes about feminism. When Mr. O and I get married, I plan on taking his last name. I’ve always liked this tradition; I’ve also respected others views. Taking your spouses last name isn’t the right decision for everyone. It is a personal choice, and everyone is free to choose what feels right to them. Renee chose to take her husband’s last name when she got married, and I thought I’d share her reasoning.
