Awesome links for you!

In honor of this, our most loved-up month, have you downloaded my free relationship workbook: The ‘Before You Commit’ Checklist? Seriously, love isn’t as complicated as we make it. And Chrissy Teigen will back me up on this.
Vodka gimlet’s are my go-to cocktail, so I’m intrigued by this celery and lime gimlet.

A great reminder that everyone – EVERYONE – has struggled: My Very Personal Hurt, Suffered, Cried, Tanked, Flopped, Crawled, Begged for Mercy List. May it bring you comfort.
My parents were teenagers when they had me. That in and of itself wasn’t a bad thing, (it made for great house parties). But their marriage was on and off and volatile, so I never knew how long we’d stay in a house or a town. That kind of instability seeps into your psyche and you have to work hard to trust the support systems of life. The upside: I became an overachiever who can pack up a house in a day.
A beautiful essay about grandmothers, creativity, and how we talk to ourselves.
The notes, they carried me through that first worry (he did not love me), through grief, through my thesis work, through the worst depressions I have ever had. They taught me that I wasn’t helpful to myself, much less anyone else, if I wasn’t soft. If I wasn’t patient.
If you appreciate my taste in links, I have 26 (!!!) Pinterest boards filled with equally awesome things. Let’s be friends!
