most read posts of all time



the past 4+ years since starting the third boob have been a journey that we both feel truly thankful for. we are often asked what our top/most read posts have been. some of the posts that get the most traffic continue to surprise us (because we feared no one but our friends and family would want to read them or because we didn't put a lot of time into the initial post) and others make us so very happy that our hard work paid off.

whatever the reason, we are glad you are along with us for this journey and we give thanks for each of you and your support daily.
