Miscarriage: The M Word

Miscarriage: The one group I never wanted to be a part of.

This post was originally shared on August 22, 2013 over on With(out) Child. I’m sharing this post here, 3 years after writing and publishing it, as a reminder of the journey we took to become parents. It’s something that…

The most important 7 minutes of my day.

  I’ve been secretly plodding away at my newest personal challenge. I’m hesitant to call it a 100 Day project because I don’t really want to set myself up to be unhealthy BUT I have visions of doing it…

74/100: In an act of sweet synchronicity…

Yesterday was a big day. I uncovered a lot of great stuff; a whole host of beliefs, fears, and doubts that I’ve been carrying around. So many juicy bits to work on and clear from my brain. And in…
