The Weekly Wrap #4

You're not doing it right until you've pissed someone off. That has always been my litmus test for breaking the sound barrier between where I was and where I wanted to be. Turns out I'm there, at least if the tweet calling me a dumbass today is any indication. It's okay. I played nice but I did respond something like "Think what you like. Your perception does not affect my reality."

And then The Husband high-fived me, I hit send on the tweet, and we went about our day.

That's why I'm posting so late on the weekly wrap this time around. Many thanks to this week's sponsor, Berkey Designs , creators of the Girl Body Pride "Just The Way We Are" cuff bracelet and many other wearable inspirations. I love these guys, and really do encourage you to check out their store on Etsy. Share what you like on Pinterest, which is actually how I found Berkey Designs over a year ago. I don't remember who originally pinned the image that led me to a new connection, but thank you.

And OMG my byline is in the glossy pages of the August issue of Latina with my first print advice column!
