Fascinating Friday Links #26

Good morning!

Words are escaping me in describing how grateful I am for all of your support on yesterday’s behind the scenes look at my past eating disorder. Imagine my big bear hugs through the computer 🙂

I’ve done a lot of talking on the blog this week, so I’ll keep today’s intro short. I have an awesome list of Fascinating Friday links for you all!
