2012 was a year of grief and sadness; but also, a year of renewal and rebirth. Our loss happened so late in 2011 that it’s hard sometimes to remember it wasn’t this year. However, I certainly did all of my grieving and healing in 2012. On new years eve 2011, I was so sad to…… Continue reading 2013: Yes, please!
This weekend has been a whirlwind of emotions, to say the very least. On Saturday, December 15th, the culmination of the last three years of my life finally came: my graduation. It was a day I’ve been looking forward to for years, but especially this year. At times, I wondered if I could do it…… Continue reading Graduation Surprise 12/15/12
I texted Kristen about a week ago to ask her how she felt about having a photographer in the room during Liam’s birth. I saw a collection of photos from another bio/surro birth shoot and I was in tears. I have to have those precious, priceless memories. I didn’t know that Kristen had already partnered…… Continue reading A Living Scrapbook

It’s beginning to feel more real as the weeks move forward. Today I went to Babies R Us to check out their selection of all the necessities. I also encountered the first (of many) inquisitive stares as I moved happily along the aisles with my tagging gun. One sweet lady was forward enough to ask,…… Continue reading The search is on!
It was a year ago today that I happily announced to the world (which was a much smaller following at that point), that I was pregnant. I remember waking up that morning and deciding “today’s the day!”. We all know that once news is Facebook official, it’s really official. That was the very first decision…… Continue reading 11.11.11

In seven days I will begin my first round of fertility shots. Hooray! I never knew I would be this excited to experience menopause and ovarian-overload all in one month. Wait, menopause? That’s how this process works. The first cycle of injections I’m about to begin will completely shut down my ovaries. To clarify, I…… Continue reading Menopause at ..27?
Back to the real world after experiencing paradise for a whole week – and I must say, it was a much needed break for both Jake and I. The first day of vacation I literally didn’t know what to do without my cellphone or laptop, and I walked around for hours before I was comfortable…… Continue reading Shots, shots, shots, shots (everybody!)
I haven’t written in a few weeks, since before Mother’s Day. It was a hard time for me leading up to that holiday; one that I knew I should be celebrating, but wasn’t. Not only was it Mother’s Day, it was also my “full term” date (I would have been 38 weeks pregnant). So, with…… Continue reading Leaving it all behind for what’s ahead
