Infertile. A word that could be described as off-limits, or even taboo in a conversation. A word that for some hurts to say out loud, or even to type. A word that can change every plan that you had made for yourself and your future. A word that I never thought I would have to… Continue reading Spilling the “Infertility” Beans
This Is Simply Real Life.
I haven't been on my blog much lately. To be honest, I haven't been on it at all, actually. I've been in this stress-ridden rut lately, where everything I do seems to take too much energy. I don't know if it's the end of the cold, dark season catching up to me, or the fact… Continue reading This Is Simply Real Life.

What is Infertility?
I know I have shared the literal definition of Infertility several times. Infertility is described as the inability to conceive children after one year of having unprotected intercourse. There is so much more to being infertile than what is shared in that one simple sentence. There is sadness, heartache, debt, emptiness. That one sentence doesn't… Continue reading What is Infertility?
Why I’m NOT scared to travel to Mexico

I get giddy just thinking about it. What a magical and romantic occasion. Shortly after Mike and I got engaged… Continue reading Why I’m NOT scared to travel to Mexico
DIY Date Jar
In honor of Valentines Day, I thought I would share the DIY gift that I made for Mike. I know there are a lot of people out there who don't support (or like) this holiday because of the idea that it was created by big companies trying to sell their good. But the way I… Continue reading DIY Date Jar

With classes in full swing, temporary changes at work, things going wrong around the house (holy leaky pipe filling our basement with water), and the fact that my wedding is now a… Continue reading MIA
So I stumbled upon this new thing the other day on Twitter that one of my fellow Cysters posted. It was an article called #saytheFword. I of course had to check it out, because I swear like a sailor and the "F" word is one of my favorite sentence enhancers. I was pleasantly surprised the… Continue reading #saytheFword
It’s A Small World After All

When I look at my daily stats and see many views from MANY different countries, I just can't help but think how awesome that is. Not only because I am AMAZED that my blogs are somehow… Continue reading It’s A Small World After All
(Crazy) Crap we do while trying to conceive (TTC)

Hope that will end with a plus sign on a pee stick. So, I've decided to throw together a list of common things that I see in… Continue reading (Crazy) Crap we do while trying to conceive (TTC)
Love Yourself The Way You Are…
....Because you'll always find something to hate. So something happened this weekend. It was kind of a life changing moment. For some, it may seem minuscule, but it almost felt like a breakthrough for me. I've been writing a lot lately about my struggle with self-love. I'm a bully to myself constantly and it's both… Continue reading Love Yourself The Way You Are…
