In honor of Halloween, here’s a picture of my Great Fire of London-themed pumpkin, which I totally carved myself because I am awesome. (Sorry. This is the first year I attempted to the pumpkin carving, so I’m a little boastful).
(Ok, technically it’s not a Great Fire-themed pumpkin. It’s just a [...]
A big thanks to everyone who took part in the body image discussion we had on Monday. I really value everyone’s opinion, and you guys have me thinking so much more than I already was about this.
