My midwife and chiropractor each have given me the same encouragement over the past year: “Exercise/Stretch for Healing; Repair that Muscle Damage!”
(“Ok, thanks,” I said. And proceeded to do nothing.)
But by the time my maternity clothes were packed away (Thanks, Trina), my abdominal muscles still hadn’t healed. It’s called

I don’t think I’ve ever had this many photos of myself in one post before. This feels rather weird for me. But I really wanted to share my thrifted finds with you!

With the arrival of autumn, I’ve been doing more decluttering and sorting. Boxes of donation items sit by my back door, awaiting the next trip to town. Shelves and drawers can “breathe” a bit more, and so can I. Old magazines, outgrown clothes, and other unneeded items from previous seasons
