I had a moment. I felt them. It was real.

Tonight, at the end of my training session, we did some meditation work.  We were concentrating on our breathing and I was finding it difficult to shake other thoughts from my head.  Things like…

I can’t believe Nicholas is four.  I wish I would have done <insert x, y or z here> with him.


Five. Warning – not an upbeat post.

Five had always been a favorite number of mine.  I would pick it to use as my number when I played sports in school, whenever I could.  This year, it’s not so much a favorite.

You see, five years ago today, at this time, I was enjoying a dinner/interview with a former coworker.  We […]

Fall is almost here? Where did summer go?

We had a fantastic summer.  I was so busy with the boys.  Last summer, it was difficult for me, having a new baby and a toddler, but this summer, we made the most of it!


We went on lots of playdates! Nicholas had gymnastics class at Bounce for 10 weeks! Christopher learned to […]

Four Years Ago…Today | Life Changed

Four years ago today, our world changed as we knew it.

Married less than a year, blissfully pregnant with twins.  Settling in for the evening when all of a sudden… in the blink of an eye…we found ourselves facing a new ‘normal’.

We had to call 911 (for the first, and hopefully ONLY time […]

Four years ago this month…

I was blissfully pregnant.  I was in my 2nd trimester, enjoying being pg with twins.

Around this time was when I first started feeling the girls, but didn’t realize it was them.  I remember it feeling like ‘the gurglies’ or little bubbles inside of me.

I know that people can’t believe that I still […]

Happy Father’s Day!

To my wonderful hubby, Nick!  We all love you SO much!!

About our Girls ~ Catch Up Post #3

Hmm…let’s see.  Today it has been 3 years, 9 months, and 6 days since we said goodbye to our girls.

Some days it seems like just yesterday.  Other times it seems like so long ago.

And then, you have a dose of reality when you realize you’re taking pics of their headstone instead of […]

What Makes a Mother?

I’ve shared this poem before, but I think that at this time of the year, when there’s so much talk about Mother’s Day – it’s very appropriate.

I miss you, girls.

Love, Mommy.

What Makes a Mother?

I thought of you and closed my eyes, And prayed to God today. I asked what makes […]

Remembering our girls...every day.

As time goes on, people ask me, again and again, do you REALLY think of your girls EVERY SINGLE DAY?  And of course, my answer is a resounding YES!

As a parent, do you EVER have a day when you don’t think of your child?  It’s the same for me, except my girls are […]

2009 Revisited...and what's on tap for 2010

The rules: Post the first sentence of the first blog entry for every month of 2009. My comments are after each one! January: Mmm, best tasting ‘medicine’ I’ve ever had! So…I’m sitting here ENJOYING my first glass of wine in a VERY long time.  Remember, I was still nursing Nicholas when I got pg with […]
