lilablackbird asked: I don't have a question (yet). I just want to tell you how much I love this blog! I'm a regular reader of Two Whole Cakes, and I'm really glad you're on my Tumblr dash.

Aside: Marianne, will you marry me?
laurendarling: “And on a serious note… I love reading the FA blogs out there, I really do. People have amazing insights and it’s wonderful. But. (you knew there was a ‘but’ there) It seems like the most prominent FA voices out there are married women.

My teacher, stupid nosy bitch, decides she wants to join in on the conversation. She asks me what I’m talking about so I turned around and her reaction was to make a noise of utter disgust.
