Ready or Not

In three more days our daughter will leave the daycare she has been at for the better part of her toddler years and go to school. My heart is racing. If I close my eyes I can see her running in circles around the playground, holding hands with her bestie, laughing until it hurts, and…

Putting Infertility to Rest

It had taken a long time to come to the decision that we had but Brian and I were finally comfortable and ready to move onto that next step. I sat with the phone to my ear listening to it ring into the gynecologists office, my heard pounding harder with every ring, I was actually…

16 Year Old Self

Dear 16 year old self, You know me; very well, we share the same face, skin, eyes, body… Oh that body. Wouldn’t you love to have a different one? Well, appreciate the one you have now. You are gorgeous and don’t see how beautiful you really are. Weight? No. Stand tall, find clothes that flatter…
