My friends, we did it. I am writing this blog with tears in my eyes and a baby in my arms. Our son was born one week ago today. He is the definition of perfection. My husband and I were both at the hospital when he arrived. I was even allowed to cut his umbilical… Continue reading Is this real life?
If you know my husband or I personally, then there’s a good chance that you’ve noticed something different about us lately.. I see it in both of us. Not just the dark circles under the eyes or the extra weight gain (stress eating is REEEEAL), but something more abstract. Something inside of us is different.… Continue reading Wild Horses

Ahhhh my blog. My long lost friend.. I haven’t been able to write in so long. I feel like I’m reconnecting with an old buddy right now! I’ve always said that this blog comes straight from my soul. I’m pouring my heart out for all of you to see. I can’t write it with secrets… Continue reading I’m baack!
