I had been putting off writing this post for about a month and a half. National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. Feb 26-March 4 I had been dreading writing this post because, obviously BBB is an eating disorder recovery blog, so I feel kinda…obligated…to address the topic, but honestly, I’m kinda luke warm on the wholeContinue reading This Post is Raw
It’s a funny thing, nostalgia. Whether it’s rewatching Harriet the Spy, or finding your suede, sea-foam green converse shoes from when you were a kid (#style), certain things have the power of just bringing you back to moments in time and making them feel like just yesterday. That happened today. One of the things IContinue reading Renaissance of the Heart
There is a weariness of spirit, that I’m going to be honest, I wasn’t expecting to encounter.

Sitting here in the Adoration Chapel with my mom, wracking my brain about how The F am I supposed to write a Valentine’s Day post as a hopelessly single gal, who has left all prospects of love back in NYC when I temporarily moved backContinue reading Late Bloomer
Well here we are, Saturday night, 10:00pm, and I’m…in bed. People. I am turning into an old fogey. Seriously. Pretty soon I’m going to be eating tapioca and wearing Depends! Juuuuuust kidding. But honestly, that has been one of the bigger changes since coming home to help my mom post-stroke: Going to bed early. No joke.Continue reading Better Tomorrow
Oh how my days are different these days. I’ve always been a bit of a night owl, but nowadays, the nighttime is my own personal retreat. When the whole house is asleep, alarm on, and my darkened room is lit with the glow of my overworked MacBook, I can finally breathe. Reflect. Write. Numb out.Continue reading Do You Trust Me?
