April is always a big month at Learning Domestic Discipline. It's LDD's birthday month, and our 2014 celebration was a week long this year! We posted a new article every day for a week to celebrate LDD turning three years old. We had new posts, new downloads, and lots of exciting announcements! We even made a video for you to thank you for all of your support.
In addition to all the birthday content this month, we had our regular Mailbag Monday articles, as well as a Saturday Stories article that sheds a little light on a rarely covered domestic discipline topic. If you missed any of it, we'll get you all caught up with this April recap. Let's get to it!
March 31 - Mailbag Monday: Week 39 - We answer questions about sexual arousal and consent, practicing domestic discipline while pregnant, and living the domestic discipline lifestyle when living apart from one another in the 39th edition of Mailbag Monday.
April 4 - Five Things Friday: The BIG ANNOUNCEMENT Edition - Chelsea announces LDD's upcoming birthday week, she starts a new 100 day challenge, and she has a little fun with a "finish this sentence" exercise. You'll learn a lot about her after reading this one!
