I regularly make it a habit to try and keep up on yearly photo books, books from our trips, and especially photo books that document the important steps in our life.  Naturally,…

Pregnancy Update: Gestational Diabetes & Homestretch

Well, I am in the homestretch of this pregnancy and I honestly cannot even believe it! Where did all of the time go!? I am currently sitting at 33 weeks and A LOT has happened since I last updated y’all at 28 weeks.  Gestational Diabetes I went through my three hour glucose test and failed, which means I got the phone call that I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Cue a whole host of emotions from anger to disbelieve to…

Maternity Fashion Favorites

So for anyone who has been pregnant or is currently pregnant, it is no surprise to you that maternity fashion that is cute AND affordable can be hard to find. I find most of the time when things are super cute, they also come at a designer price tag. I have spent a considerable amount of time looking for outfits and things that I can mix and match during my pregnancy. If you were to walk into my closet, you…

Sometimes You Have to Marvel at God’s Humor

So you may have noticed I’ve been rather absent here lately. And I promise it’s for good reason. Read on, friends.  Many of you may know that Mark and I have been pursuing fertility treatments for the past year and a half. Our most recent failure was in November, I found out our IUI failed on Thanksgiving.

The Journey of Finding Trust in God’s Plan

This is the hardest post I’ve ever written. This post exposes the most vulnerable parts of me.  But for some reason, I keep coming back to it. Something inside of me keeps saying, share it.  My finger has hovered over the publish button for weeks.  I can’t wrap my head around why this topic seems to be some sort of secret code of secrecy among women. I know there are more who have been down this journey. So I guess a part…
