Life Isn’t Fair

I find myself struggling tonight. Struggling to accept how horrendously awful and unfair the world is. As I sit here, childless and sad, I often wonder what it is that I did to deserve this. Why I am left to lose each piece of light. Why each time a new option seems within reach, it…

Why Hello

I am totally astounded by the fact that I haven’t written since June 1st. I have like 30 blogs sitting in my draft folder that just need photos or to be scheduled.   My apologies. I do have a lot to write about, chronicling the trip to Paris, Venice, Rome, and Naples. I have a…

Nothing More Tattoo

This is probably one of my least eye-catching, awe-inspiring pieces. While it is very well done, it just doesn’t take your breath away. But, it is also probably the most personal important, inspirational thing I have ever put on my body. This lyric tattoo, done by Jason Weaver of Living Art San Clemente consists of…

Big Plans

Things have been a little absolutely, absurdly crazy, hectic, and crappy in my life. But, as always, born in the strife is an amazing idea. I don’t know if it will pan out. I don’t know if it will even sort of work. But, I am determined to make it happen. I am excited, and…

“Surgery”

This blog is all about female reproductive stuff and pregnancy. If you are squimish and grossed out by girly things, you should probably move on to a different post…   So, I had my hysteroscopy and polypectomy about a month ago. And what was supposed to be a very minor, 15 minute surgery that had less…

Powder Puff Pinups – Alissa

In April of 2015, my (then fiancĂ©e) husband and I took a ride out to Palm Springs to work with the very talented Alissa Brunelli of Powder Puff Pinups. This was my second time working with one of these badass ladies (the first was Sunshine), and it was set to be an exciting day. We…

Stung Photo – Glamour

Back on May 10, 2015, I had the incredible opportunity to work with Stung Photo. Odir is easily one of my absolute favorite photographers. He is very easy to be around, and he is hilarious. He has no problem doing poses and facial expressions as examples, cracking jokes, playing Slipknot, and generally just making it…

Results and More Testing

This blog is all about female reproductive stuff and pregnancy. If you are squimish and grossed out by girly things, you should probably move on to a different post…   The results of my testing came back with some really positive stuff, and some sort of strange stuff. The serious genetic conditions that run in…

Changing Lives

( featured image stolen from the LA Times ) I feel like everyone has this dream at some point in their lives that they want to make a difference and change lives. I also think that most of us eventually realize that while we can touch and change those around us, on a grand scale, […]…

Seahorse

In June of 2014, I made another trip to see the very talented Monte Livingston. I needed balance on my chest; no more lopsided ink for me. So, Monte drew up and put a beautiful seahorse opposite my starfish. Not directly opposite, as that wouldn’t seem natural. But, she turned out beautifully, and brought the…

Testing

This blog is all about female reproductive stuff and pregnancy. If you are squimish and grossed out by girly things, you should probably move on to a different post…   I don’t have a fitting photo for this, so you guys get the glory that is my bad drawing. Three weeks ago, I met with…

Loss

This blog is all about female reproductive stuff and pregnancy. If you are squimish and grossed out by girly things, you should probably move on to a different post…       Of everything in my life, this is easily the most difficult subject for me to speak about. And there is a lot in my…
