As a Stonyfield Blogger, I was asked to write about Stonyfield Yogurt and a beautiful recycled polyester prAna dress. I never imagined the turn the month would take, and how these items would go from #SummerCravings to actual necessities.
You see, this May I had a harrowing and actual near-death experience. An undiagnosed bout of infectious colitis turned into septic shock and I spent several days in the ICU. It was traumatic and bizarre and put my life on hold. But at the same time taught me so much about friends and family and community and the safety net that exists in one’s life even if you don’t believe it’s there.
So what does all this have to do with yogurt and a shift dress?
After I got released from the hospital I looked about 9 months pregnant from the swelling. Nothing fit me. But then I found my prAna dress had arrived in the mail, a flattering swing dress that I wore almost everyday as my belly slowly returned to its normal size.
And having been plied with every antibiotic known to man, the first order of business was to refuel my body and and restore my gut health with some good probiotics. So that’s where my favorite organic yogurt comes in!
So what I craved this summer actually became what I needed this summer. And the cool thing is that I can GIVEAWAY a dress just like this to one lucky reader!
