News from the Moe-side
We've had a bit of snow here and I have my fingers crossed for more on Christmas Eve. Most of the shopping is done for people whose gifts we have to parcel so we can relax and enjoy the season a bit.
The itty bitty kitty we rescued is coming along -- full of pee and vinegar so that must be a good sign. It's definitely been disruptive to the household that is for sure. We decided against a tree this year; for safety and sanity.
On the blog front I've just about finished setting up the Canadian version of my plus size shopping blog. It's basically the same face except for the little Canadian flag. It is definitely on the back burner of things to do but it's there for those who wanted and easier version so they don't have to sort through which shops would deliver to them. I hope you enjoy this week's newsletter and are enjoying the holiday season.
Have a great weekend!

But then, I had one of those moments of self doubt that can be so compounded for those of us who have or have had body image issues. I started thinking that I’d be the biggest woman in the group, and that just snowballed into a whole cascade of insecurities, like, 'What if I’m the fattest woman in the group and my voice is off/I sing wrong notes/I’m not funny...' So I did something that I often tell my clients to do. I found pictures of some of the greatest women comedians and singers and actors who were also fat and fabulous. Immediately, I thought of ones who are still around..." From Body Love Wellness (Fabulous Fat Lineage — Redux)
