Things Are Changing

Hey friends! It has been a while since I have posted on here! Firstly, I just want to say HAPPY 2020! Yes, I know I am late, but I hope this new year has been off to a great start for you all!

With the newness the year brings, I have a pull to do some changing. This little blog is a fun, and freeing way for me to write and connect with others. So I feel like I need to do a little changing to it.

For so long I have been so afraid of what to write. Afraid that it may come off boring, preachy, or whatever. I guess for all of 2019 I let fear freeze my joy of writing. So I just stopped. I stopped writing what was on my heart, and boy was it exhausting! Continue reading “Things Are Changing”

An Ode to My Twenties & 30 Things I’ve Learned Since Turning Thirty

I turned 30 last Wednesday and I decided to reflect and list thirty things I’ve learned over the years. I’m not going to lie I have been so down about saying goodbye to my twenties. They were filled with pain, heartache, growth, new life not just in giving birth 5 times, but new life for me as well. I’ve been stretched and pulled in many different ways. I walked a thousand different paths in trying to find myself.

I flailed and fought through college in a career path that wasn’t for me. I learned quickly in A&P after poking and prodding with a cadaver whose name I cannot remember that the body had way too many body parts and muscles, and bones that I care to even begin to try and name. I realized that path just wasn’t for me. So I dropped out, cue the violin music and feeling like a failure. I couldn’t quite figure out what my “calling” was. “Oh you are still young it will come to you.” Continue reading “An Ode to My Twenties & 30 Things I’ve Learned Since Turning Thirty”

Overcoming 9 Months With Hyperemesis Gravidarum

my thoughts on being induced

“Not right now kids mommy is really sick.” Has become normal in my house while going through hyperemesis. We have only been in our new house for a few months now and I feel like I’ve spent most of it sick on the couch or in bed. I can hear my husband playing with the kids while I’m in the other room just trying to not throw up. I won’t lie this time around was nowhere near has hard as my previous pregnancy. With that pregnancy I had to have iv infusions twice a week to stay hydrated and not get a picc line. Continue reading “Overcoming 9 Months With Hyperemesis Gravidarum”

Exciting Announcements

I’ve been really quiet over this way for a bit, and decided it was time for an update. Back in August on my youngest daughter’s 4th birthday I found out some exciting news! Earlier in the day I was feeling really nauseous, and I had some light cramping. I remember feeling really dizzy and for a faint second it popped in my head to grab a test.

Healing and Hospitality

Healing God's Way

How fitting that my very first blog post would be about healing and hospitality. Let me first start by saying that I broke my ankle on February 27th. It was an ordinary day of picking up my eldest daughter from preschool and grabbing lunch.  I was walking down the steps at home carrying my son in his car seat. I missed a few steps and twisted my ankle. I felt it pop beneath my weight, but thankfully my little man was left unscathed. There I was in agony on the bottom step right beside the baby gate(the irony I know).
