I put off traveling and and living a full life for the same reason. I didn’t want to be photographed in some remarkable place because it would be recorded in history and I would look like....that. I struggled with eating disorders and finally recovered. I fixed my relationship with food, which is wonderful because I LOVE food. Full stop. Let’s embrace how beautiful it is that we are all different. I see the world of sameness around me - petite, over bleached, toned women wearing the same outfits and it’s just so utterly boring. Nothing good can come from everyone looking the same. I can’t wait to read your book. Congratulations for the persistence to bring this to life. ♥️

It’s so dang GOOOD!!!!! And all of this intention and heart is felt deeply. I too which this existed for my teenage self instead of falling in love with vampires but I’m so glad it exists now to heal those parts of us who still need the reminder 💗 can’t wait for the world to fall in love with Poppy because they will!

I was a “big girl” growing up in the 90s - and have painfully vivid memories of getting doctors’ notes (yes, multiple) to go on weight watchers because I was under 16 the first several times my mom told me I needed to do it. I resonate so much with everything you’ve said. I needed Poppy too. Thank you 🩵

Whoops, hit enter too fast lol. I'm even more excited to read it knowing what it means to you and how hard you've worked to get to this point of being a published author. I'm so fucking happy for you! You deserve every bit of this success and so does your teenage self. 💜
