12 things that make me incredibly happy

Tulips

This May has been a tough one for me so far. I’ve attended two funerals (it’s been years since I’ve even been to one), heard of a few other deaths and one major sickness. It’s almost too much to take in. I know that I’m very fortunate…for much of my life and what I’ve been… [Read More]

Sugar update – I’m not dead yet

Oh sugar. I knew I would miss you. I just didn’t know how much I would miss you, which tells you that there was a slight problem that needed to be addressed. I’m on day 4 of my 5 day challenge. It has been easier in many ways than I thought and harder in others…. [Read More]

Introducing my new cast of writers

When I started this blog way back in 2008, it was nothing more than a diary of my first pregnancy. Fast forward several years and a lot has changed. I’ve changed. Now this site is less about baby and more about my life as a mom. That life includes my marriage, my career, my health… [Read More]
