If you’ve been around this blog for a while, then you’ve probably seen posts from the Womanly Wednesday series. I started this post back in fall 2015 as a way to give different women a chance to their stories. I believe so strongly that vulnerability about our struggles is what brings us together and brings us toward healing, and I loved that my blog was a place where women could share and read about the hard things we all go through without shame.
For the first year or so of the series, I pretty much just begged any and all friends I could think of to share a part of their story. I had friends from my childhood in California, my college years in Davidson, my travels abroad, and my life here in Kansas City share pieces of their hearts, their most challenging moments beautifully expressed for the world to see and know.
