Your thoughtful, positive comments on Monday's post really meant a lot to me. Thank you for sharing your insights on the subject of body image, which is a sensitive one for me. Amy e-mailed a link to an article on the topic that you might enjoy - sounds like the sales gal in the beginning of the story has an experience similar to mine.
And thanks for the anniversary wishes. To celebrate, Barry and I tried out a new-to-us wine bar and then feasted at one of our favorite spots in town, Toro Bravo. A life lesson worth learning: never say no to olive oil cake, people.
For some reason, as I've mentioned before, Blogger only e-mails me a few of the comments posted here - the rest I read by looking directly at the blog. If you left a comment this week and Blogger e-mailed it to me, I responded by e-mail to your note. If you didn't hear from me after commenting on that post, it's because I was unable to respond directly to your comment through e-mail. Blogger, being free and all, isn't big on customer service, so I don't know if this issue is ever going to get fixed. Please know that I love reading your comments, and that the notes you leave me hear are truly appreciated. Thanks again, friends.
P.S. In case you're interested, on our anniversary, I wore a knee-length dress with bare legs. Earth-moving, huh?
