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

Grattitude

Grattitude

Thank you. A lot of people have said they’re encouraged, inspired, and thankful I’ve been so open with our infertility struggle, with our now second miscarriage, etc. And some people don’t get it.

It’s a Woman’s Job

It’s a Woman’s Job

We, as women, are each other’s biggest critics. We are constantly competing with other women and finding ways to tear them down.

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

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

Soothing the Soul

I had a much needed weekend of soul soothing and what I’d like to think of recovery and the road to redemption. After gorging myself on Friday morning with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked I realized I couldn’t continue down that dangerous road. I made a promise to myself as I licked … Continue reading
