Thoughts...Marie Osmond

I have been reading Marie Osmond's "Behind the Smile: My Journey out of Postpartum Depression" and can I just say that I am really enjoying it so far. I don't feel like I have PPD, but this book is funny! She is a great writer, and I enjoy her wit and humor while divulging her innermost struggle with depression. As a Mom, everyone has their down moments and I would be lying to say I didn't. It's hard to admit - but sometimes you really do just need to cry. Thanks to a great husband and supportive family - I do thoroughly enjoy Mommy-hood.

Anyway, I recommend this book (or atleast the first 80 pages - I'll let you know when I finish it). Maybe not all Mother's can relate to everything in her life (she is an Osmond - and lets just say it - They are crazy!) but I can relate to her feelings at times.

Did I mention I met Donny once in the University Mall in Provo? My friend, Krizia, and I were at American Eagle and Donny was there outside the dressing room shopping with his son. I took a picture with him and I'll even post it - even though I look HORRIBLE!! It's ok - you guys know I am cute so I can post a bad pic just once.

Hey there - I am Michelle Walton's sister-in-law. Your blog is cute.

I was so in love with Donny Osmond when I was younger. I wanted to marry him (but he was too old).

I noticed you had Bryce & Christina Williams on your blog list. Are they from Antioch in Northern California? We had a Williams family in our ward when we lived there. Bryce Williams was in my hubby's seminary class and he married a girl named Christina. Is that the same Williams? If so, small world!
