Don’t Carry It All

This is the purse I carry practically every day. (I actually hate that it’s black, and would love to find a dark brown Kate Spade similar to this one, so if you come across something, let me know. Hello tangent!) Anyway, it’s much smaller than most of the purses my friends use, but it’s just…

Knowing Me, Knowing You

“If you really knew me, you would know that…” Loaded prompt this week eh? I figured I’d compile a list of the things those closest to me should/do know, some of the answers will be provided so that you can get to know me a little better as well. Some of the answers will not…

(You Drive Me) Crazy

“…I just can’t sleep.  I’m so excited, I’m in too deep. Whoa, crazy, but it feels alright. Baby thinking of you keeps me UP ALL NIGHT!” I’m not sure if that’s exactly how Elijah would describe his lovely wife, but that’s how I picture him. Singing along to the CD I bought him for his…

Valentine’s Day

I don’t remember what we did on Valentine’s Day before we had kids, although, given my love for pajamas, I’m fairly certain that it did not involve candlelit dinners in white table-clothed restaurants. We have always been the “staying in” type of couple so I can’t imagine us doing anything more exotic than what we…

Best Year Yet

Here’s a list of things, written to my 2010 self, that I believe will help make 2011 my best year yet. (The assignment called for 20 but I only made it to 17, that was overwhelming enough for me!) Laugh more, especially at your family’s lamest of jokes. Say yes more often than no. Or…

All Messed Up

Before you judge me as a terrible over sharer of my children’s most horrifying moments, keep in mind that I am totally allowed to share this about my son because I asked his permission. This past Sunday (yes I’m talking about Halloween) was pretty busy. Aside from the craziness that is our normal daily life,…

Untitled

I can’t share her story because it isn’t mine to share. Even if I felt like I could talk about it, she is barely into the prologue of her diagnosis so, at least for now, there isn’t much to say. There is still a great deal of research that must be done before her story…

Behind Blue Eyes

The most unbelievable blue eyes I’ve ever seen belong to my first born child, my baby boy, Asher. I have brown eyes and my husband’s are hazel so seeing Asher’s bright blue eyes at birth was miraculous to us. I remember worrying, during his first year, that they would change. It wasn’t so much about…

Just Like Heaven

“How far to heaven? Just open your eyes and look. You are in heaven” -Shankar In May of 2008 Elijah and I went to Dublin. Amelia was nothing more than a possibility at the time so we left Asher home with his Granny and spent a week alone. Initially we had wanted to find another…
