Day 3 of 40 days of reflection.

Somehow, my life has taken a different turn.  It’s rather like an amusement park ride full of twists and turns, than the peaceful, winding road that I had envisioned I’d be on.

Of course, that roller coaster ride began back in 2006.  The beginning of our pregnancy with the girls wasn’t an easy one.  […]

Life with boys. And ASD. And being a WAHM.

So…I said I’d be updating my blog – and I’ve obviously NOT gotten around to that.  It’s almost March and it’s only my second post of the year.  I think I know why.

I have three boys under 4.

I am running a successful photography biz.

I am feeding another human being.

I have […]


Three years ago, I had a difficult time finding something to be thankful for.  We had just lost our daughters, and I was pretty down… what a difference 3 years can make.

We have SO much to be thankful for.

That we got to meet our beautiful daughters.  Some parents don't get the chance […]

Happy Anniversary to us!

Nick and I have been married for 4 years, today, though we've been together for almost 14.

Here's a peek into what the day was like:


This bench is where the girls' brick now lies.


Where to start? So behind on my blogging!

I'll start by saying that I can hardly believe that it's already the 22nd of October.  Having two under two certainly makes time feel like it's ticking by even FASTER than it felt before.

Updates on Christopher:

Christopher's six-month/half birthday came and went…at the end of last month.  He'll be seven months old […]

Wrote another page in my Mommy Book…

Today was interesting. 

Started out with quite a few tantrums from my soon to be two-year old that thinks he needs to go outside in his PJs or half-dressed.I finally got him to eat some breakfast, and then we were off to go grocery shopping. 

I got one of those fun little […]

Less than 24h until we see Madonna!

The countdown has officially begun!  Tomorrow night we'll be at the Madonna concert!  I'll be sure to update on Wednesday!

Had a scare…

So, I've been having these weird 'feelings' if you will.  Not necessarily cramping.  Not necessarily contractions.  Just a feeling that something 'was not right'.  So I called the peri's office on Thursday and talked at great length with the nurse, Mary.

I explained to her what was going on.  She asked me all the […]

Our ‘new’ van…

So, yesterday we picked up our 'new' pre-owned 2006 Chrysler Town & Country Limited.  It's SO nice, that I feel like I'm driving my parent's car again! ;o)

Our third anniversary is today and the 'traditional' gift is something made of Leather.  I joked to Nick that the van can be my gift since […]

Yes, I’m still grieving…

I had someone ask me the other day – do you think of your girls often?  "Only Everyday," I responded.

Yes, it's true.  25 months later, I STILL think of our girls.  EVERY day.  Especially as Nicholas continues to grow, and do the things that my girls SHOULD have been doing.  Walking.  Talking.

And […]
