Happy Wednesday, Makers! I am really feeling the love this week since my post about my SMYLY story last week on the blog and the podcast episode this week on body positivity. Thanks to everyone who has reached out to say that they can relate to my story and that they are feeling empowered to share! This really has given me a boost this week that I am using to fuel my making and my personal goals, so thank you for that!
