A friend of mine just posted pics of her birthday party, which was “veggie themed, since I don’t eat desserts :)”
She had a veggie cake. Literally just a stack of vegetables with a candle in it. Literally the most depressing thing I have ever seen.
P.S. we got the cake AND the salted chocolate mousse.
Uh so my friends are fancy and they want to go to a fancy restaurant for dinner tonight. The regular menu freaked me out a little bit (it was mostly in French) but look at the dessert menu….
Sometimes I like to unpack all of the beautiful groceries and just look at them before I put them away. I love how the colors look together, and I like to imagine how I will prepare everything.
This is my favorite part of the weekend. Grocery shopping. I’m boring, I know.
It’s just that I used to not eat, but I have always loved food. Those years spent in self-enforced food exile have made me endlessly delighted by and grateful for the bounty I enjoy now. I’m grateful that I have a well-paying job and can afford healthy food regardless of cost. I’m grateful that I have a fiancé who likes my cooking and appreciates what I make. I’m grateful that I don’t live in a food desert. I’m grateful that I have transportation to the store, and that if I forget something I can just turn right around and go back for it. That I can experiment. That I have internet access to look up recipes.
And most of all I’m grateful that the voice inside my head that terrorized me for all of those years is mostly silent now. That I can eat in peace- in joy, even. And that I can nourish my body as an act of love. My recovery has been one of the most miraculous experiences of my life. I’m endlessly grateful.
Doing a two-mile loop around a windy lake when my body is VERY enthusiastically letting me know that I’m not pregnant sort of feels like an accomplishment. It’s hot and muggy as balls too, so by the time I was done I was completely soaked.
WHERE IS MY AWARD PLEASE
Ok I’m not even into Game of Thrones but this is funny.
Einstein and his therapist.
If you feel sad, watch this video of my nephew laughing. Instant happy.
Not sure how this is comfortable but he’s out like a light.
