WHAT BEING "PLUS SIZE" MEANS IN 2017

Hey girl, yeah you - With the super trendy embroidered denim with the adorable hemline. Or you, in the really cute leather suede skirt. I envy you. Why, you ask? Because I literally cannot find those items in my size right now, and it's frustrating.

TEACHING RESPECT

Disclaimer: I honestly have no idea what I'm doing as a parent. My daughter is almost two, and I'm literally winging it.

Growing up, my mom was superwoman and if I disappointed her in the slightest it would break my heart. I looked up to her as a powerful, successful, loving woman who could do no wrong. I wanted to BE her.
