This morning I’m headed to an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to evaluate whether or not Nora needs surgery on her CCL. For anyone that didn’t see my stories a few weeks ago, I am pretty sure she tore her CCL (she already tore and had surgery on one leg and it’s common for it to happen to the other). My biggest fear/worry is a dog at her age undergoing such an intense surgery but I want to do whatever I can to make sure she can have the best chance at healing. So appreciate any good vibes you can send our way. Thank you and have a great weekend. xx Jess

“Regardless, in an attempt to defend Eilish — a sincere attempt, often from other young women — a new narrative is being formed around her body. Now, it’s about Eilish’s “bravery” in having a body atypical for celebrities because she’s seemingly not a size 0. It’s a common refrain anytime a woman in the public eye is seen eating in public, having hips in public, or having rolls in public. Adele being plus-size — or, later, not being plus-size — is a source of inspiration.—An interesting article about how much emphasis is placed on women’s bodies.
