Publish

Publish

Hitting publish is my therapy. I’ve tried screaming into a pillow. I’ve tried talking to my husband. Tried talking to my best friend. I’ve tried crying. But for some odd reason nothing works like hitting publish for me. This will be scattered. This probably won’t make a lot of sense. But it will let me … Continue reading

Who I Married

Who I Married

  Kevin and I were kids when we met. 19 and 21. I recall nervously twirling my straw paper at dinner and finding myself in disbelief that I landed myself such a hottie. We were total opposites at the time. I wore a black skirt, white shirt and a red fleece, sweater vest thing, and … Continue reading

Secondary Infertility

Secondary Infertility

It’s been one hell of a year, hasn’t it? If you’ve stuck with me, I am grateful beyond words. If you read all of this, I am grateful beyond words. I had a mini melt down with my Stend (I’m Befri and she’s Stend – a combination of best friend) yesterday and told her part … Continue reading

Advice and Life Lessons

Advice and Life Lessons

  A younger friend of mine (mid 20s) recently asked if I could meet up with her to offer some advice. “Advice?” I thought, “What kind of advice can I offer someone? I’m only…30.” I haven’t met up with her yet, but it has been on my mind non stop. I’ve been racking my brain as … Continue reading

Perspective

Perspective

I was standing in front of my Aunt and Uncle’s house and found comfort in this view. I took a deep breath and took off running. I processed and cleared my mind. 30 has been a difficult year for me. Not just because of my miscarriage, but because this is the year I’ve realized just … Continue reading

A Perfect Time To Fall In Love Again

A Perfect Time To Fall In Love Again

Kevin and I had a GLORIOUS weekend celebrating his cousin’s wedding in Athens, Georgia. We made an event out of it and stayed an extra night to just reconnect and have a mini vacation. I rushed home from work on Friday, bot not without picking up a new shirt from Target and some Quest Bars. … Continue reading

Gift Giving

Gift Giving

My favorite part of Christmas is giving gifts. I love the reaction on people’s faces. I love the amount of time and thought I put into each gift. I rarely give a thoughtless gift and am troubled by it when I do. I come from a family of givers. Both of my parents have always … Continue reading

Looking Forward

Looking Forward

I had my post-operation visit last Thursday. The Pathology report came back to show that there were no genetic/parental issues and this was a true chromosomal fluke. We should be good to go in the future. Talk about a relief! The Doctor said to spend the next 6 or so weeks doing whatever makes me … Continue reading

Sinfully Sanders -Batman Cake

Sinfully Sanders -Batman Cake

My nephew requested a Batman cake for his birthday so I took it as an opportunity to do some stacking and fondant covering since I havent before. It’s a homemade stacked vanilla/white & chocolate cake with a neon yellow buttercream and homemade marshmallow fondant. All in all – I am quite pleased with my result.

Put The Fork Down

Oh Thanksgiving – what have you done to me? You’ve left me a bloated, hungover, over fed, and a full full mess. Kevin and I took the week off of work and had a “staycation” that involved copious drinking and eating. It was delightful. I cook. I cook well. I cook healthy well and I cook … Continue reading
