The other day, after the girls’ one year doctor’s appointment, I took the ladies with me to Target. We needed a few baby things (and Mama needed her free Starbucks). While staring at the baby bath aisle, wearing Scarlett in a baby carrier and Harper sitting in the cart, I heard a new mom next … Continue reading Parenting Milestones
Our girls are one year old! One year since their tiny little wails put together some of the broken pieces of my heart. The saying goes “the days are long but the years are short” and it couldn’t be any more true. It seemed like only yesterday we were anxiously (that’s a massive understatement) awaiting the … Continue reading Harper and Scarlett Are One!
Today is 2.5 years since I held my son. 2.5 YEARS! That's 30 months. That's 130 weeks. That's 912 days. That's 21,900 hours. That's 1,314,000 minutes. That's too much time without my child. These days it's hard to find the time I once had to sit and focus solely on Asher. It's so easy to … Continue reading 2 1/2 years
Recently, I’ve found myself to be highly emotional. I’ve been on the verge of tears, the kind where once you start you feel like you might never stop, for the last few days. This month the girls turn one ( in 21 days to be exact). I have been busy spending my time making decorations and … Continue reading Beautiful and Broken

Growing up my family went on a yearly vacation to the Poconos. My dad had been going there since he was 3 years old. Before my grandfather died, we would go every year with my Mom-mom and Pop-pop. It is a place that holds some of my favorite childhood memories; playing mini-golf, going to the … Continue reading Poke-a-Nose
Let me tell you a little about the Father of my three children. When we were trying to start our family and had to go to the fertility doctor, he tried to make it to whatever appointment he could. When we were finally pregnant, he went to every ultrasound to see that baby who never got … Continue reading Father’s Day 2019
For years I have seen swoon-worthy images pop up on social media of mothers with their children. Usually they start to emerge in May around Mother’s Day and then they linger for a while after. Each photo was like a little dagger to my broken heart. May 2015 – My heart was broken from months … Continue reading Mommy and Me
Last year I was able to participate in a rainbow shoot, organized by Danielle Danver Photography, while pregnant with the girls. The photo is absolutely gorgeous! My favorite part is that we are all pregnant in it. All of us were in the thick of pregnancy after loss; the fear, the anxiety, the hope, … Continue reading Rainbow Part 2
Recently, I had a conversation with a mother who shared that she was struggling to conceive a second child. I told her how sorry I was that she had to go through that struggle. Her response was “thanks, I am trying to focus on the positive, the fact that I have one child and some people … Continue reading Mixed
