Coming Soon: The Greatest Gift

Growing up, I wasn’t the girl that fantasized about being a mother. Baby dolls weren’t really my thing, and I didn’t grow up in a family with a lot of children. If I’m not mistaken, my now husband told me in the first year of our relationship (junior year of high school) that he wanted…

Goals for 2020- An Attitude Adjustment

Hello 2020! It has taken me awhile to pull together what I want to say to kick off the new year, but I finally made it.  One year used to seem like such a long time. To wait a year for something would mean to wait forever. I’ve always been told that time goes by…

Operation Period: Complete

I have been waiting for years to write this blog post: – 2.5 years ago- I was confused. I didn’t understand why I wasn’t getting my period. My brain fog was so thick that I didn’t realize my sadness and exhaustion had anything to do with my hormones or low body weight. My doctor at…

Well, unfortunately, for someone who used to spend countless hours in the gym, this has been easier said than done. I spent a couple of…

Maine Reflections Part 2: Portland Coffee Review

Okay, so my last blog post showed a little bit of the adventure side of my recent trip to Maine, but it wasn’t all about dripping sweat and counting steps. We were incredibly blessed to have beautiful, sunny weather for all but one day, so we decided to use the rainy skies as an excuse…

Maine Reflections Part 1: Acadia National Park

I started off 2019 with only one definite plan for the year: a vacation in the beautiful state of Maine during the first week of August. At the time it felt like the wait of a lifetime, but we were riding up to the airport at 4:00am before I knew it. Before now, vacation to…
