Lingering Letters {Memory}

Lingering Letters {Memory}

lingering letters memory

lingering letters memory I have felt so behind already this year, trying to find the time to catch up. I've been struggling to find the time to read anything at all, and this is causing me to dry up.

But this week, I read a few pieces that spoke to different places in my heart, but all about the same thing: memory.

As I've been frantically running behind and trying to get myself together, it was life-giving to stop for a moment to remember, savor and mourn.

I hope that you will find a poignant oasis in these pieces, as I did.

Little Did She Know...

This week, I wrote about the baggage I bring into relationships, an email blast from the past and my life as a crepe pan.

Since I never did a little yearly retrospective and this post is about memory, I thought it might be appropriate.

My most popular post from last year was Thin Ice, where I talked about the end of a relationship and the beauty I've found since.

It was followed closely by 10 Things I Learned in December (self-explanatory) and Hips, in which I discuss my dance class and how it has helped me to love my body.

Interestingly, all of these posts were published in December.

Even more interestingly, Thin Ice is my most popular post of all time which means that perhaps I should consider writing about my exes more often. (I am kidding, mostly).

I'm so glad to have you along for this journey. I've gotten to connect with many of you through Twitter, emails, comments and even in person. It's been so humbling and life-giving and I'm looking forward to continuing to walk this road with you.

I am also on the very edge of my seat to share something new with you. Come back on Wednesday for a special announcement!

Happy Saturday, friends.
