The Good Stuff

My life has been pretty upbeat lately. I’m on a new road to happiness that is keeping me engaged and positive (thank you meds, thank you Brian), and I’m learning to accept that not everything goes as planned. We are outside more, playing with Barbies, watching little to no T.V. (not that I don’t love…

I Wanted to Tell You…

I had the appointment with the fertility Dr last week. I wanted to share it with you in my usual poetic way, going over the details of the office and the way the chairs were set up. I wanted to tell you about the examination room and that there wasn’t a sink in there. I…

Let Me Remember

Let me remember this moment with you beside me, your sweet sleep moist on your forehead and your hair whispering on my cheek. Let me remember every second of your toddler face and the infant that you were just yesterday. Let me remember to give you butterfly kisses even when you’re frustrating and whining, because…

And Then… There She Was

It wasn’t the walk up the aisle that made me nervous. I knew he wasn’t going anywhere. Standing beside him and holding his hand felt comfortable and easy; it gave me a chance to search the room for the face I’d been longing to see. I told her that when I saw her I might…
