What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Becky says things about … being a rubbish woman


I do not reblog often, so you know this is something special.

I couldn’t have loved this post more. I suspect Becky and I are very similar. While it’s true that I’m a glad hand with a makeup brush and my hair goes all mermaidy on its own just to be agreeable, I am also a tragic klutz and in denial about the last 100 pounds I acquired (in weight, not wealth).

  3. Solidarity is so uplifting. And this made me laugh in the midst of Jeckle’s crisis du jour. A laugh I needed badly.
