Never Too Much

There is so much crazy in my house right now. All four of us are in school. All four of us. It is absolutely insane. The younger one just started 6th grade. The older one is starting her second year of college, working on an Associates in Early Childhood Education, with an end goal of…

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…

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…

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, […]…

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…

Rockabilly Villians

This last weekend was a total blast. Saturday was spent cleaning, crocheting, sewing, and watching Netflix. On Saturday night, we took the kids to see A Dog’s Purpose. (Which will make you cry, and is really very good.) But, it was an excuse for me to get out of yoga pants and into something fun….

Karma Kreations (Outdoors)

In February of 2015, I was privileged enough to work with Karma Kreations twice. The first time was an elegant, boudoir type shoot. This second time was a much more natural, fun, me type of shoot. Which is actually really funny, because everyone always tells met that these photos are some of their favorites, as…

Too Cold to Ride

In case you’ve never met me, let me tell you an important fact about myself…I am a huge pansy when it comes to the cold. Seriously. If it is less than 75F outside, I am probably wearing at least a light jacket. And if it is less than 65F, I am complaining about how I…
