Our Miscarriage Story

I shared on my YouTube channel the loss of our 13 week pregnancy earlier this summer. You can see the video here if you missed it.

Holiday Fever

I usually like this time of year, but lately I’m ready for it to be done. It’s probably because I was sick middle of November with a nasty chest cold and now I’m sure I have an ear infection and sore throat. I’m also exhausted.

My reason being is that it’s become a waste of time and a lot of “friends” shared nothing but bad news. It was taking a serious toll on my anxiety, I did what was best for me and deleted the … Continue reading A Treasure Worth More Than Gold
