Back In Skinny Jeans


"Will the pressure ever end? Can we end it? Do we want to end it? What can we do to feel at peace just the way we are? How can we as women better ourselves in ways that do not involve our physical appearance? I ask these questions all the time, so I pontificate here at this blog."

I love this blog! I love it because I have a pair of jeans I'd love to get into - and it doesn't matter if I ever do! This blogger might not be a mama yet, but she's got a perspective that we all need!

Enjoy! - Rachael,
