Plus size and Pregnant

On Monday I’ll be 15 weeks pregnant. You have to count it in weeks because the constant terror that something might go wrong means you need weekly milestones. Anyway, I’m not here to talk about my constant terror. Saving that for another blog post. I’m here to talk about clothes. I love clothes. I’ve not […]

Our Las Vegas Wedding. 

The night before our wedding, the  flight to Las Vegas was delayed due to storms. We sat on the runway for three hours in Los Angeles while my soon to be brother in law shifted uncomfortably in the tiny plane. He’d only ever flown twice before. We checked into our hotel after midnight, giddy with […]

I’ve been steadily gaining weight since my boyfriend and I moved in together. Whenever I’ve managed to diet, I’ve put it back on, and then some. In the final year of my nursing degree I comfort ate to survive it and gained another dress size. In the first three months of my first job as […]

Just no one in this car. 

Family is tricky. Thinking about my family tends to reminds me of a line from As Good As it Gets. “Some of us have great stories, pretty stories that take place at lakes with boats and friends and noodle salad. Just no one in this car.” My sister walked down our driveway and out of […]

The parable of the hair wrap.

When I was eight years old, I desperately wanted a hair wrap from a kiosk at the mall. I pestered my mother over what was probably several weeks for this hair wrap. We lived in a coastal town in Australia. The beach aesthetic was the only aesthetic. This was very important. As was my school’s […]
