The God Who Hears

faith, miscarriage

My eyes scanned the consent form up and down, with each bullet point the knot in my stomach grew. I couldn’t believe this moment was real, that our baby’s heart had stopped beating and we were awaiting the procedure to remove it’s little life from my body. This terrible daytime talk show was on in […]

Our April Baby

faith, miscarriage

I don’t think I will ever look at the black and white screen produced by an ultrasound machine in the same way ever again. It was on that screen, that we saw our baby for the last time. A baby that we fervently prayed for following a tough loss almost exactly a year before. We […]

One Thousand Gifts

encouragement, faith

The journal was a cheap find at TJ Maxx. I wanted it to be small enough to fit easily inside my purse. I don’t particularly care for the design, but it got the job done, so I went with it. Over the course of the year, the gold on the front has faded , and […]

Neil and I took a getaway to Vail, Colorado this past week. It was much needed time away and we loved the extra time we got to spend together. We went to Vail and loved that precious little town. Today I am sharing how we spent our first full day in the mountains! We arrived […]

All in a Day


miscarriage, motherhood

We visit our local library on most weeks. It is actually at the very end of our street so we are able to walk to it, which makes me feel like we live in NYC or basically any other city besides Houston. We always bring home a slew of children’s books, and this week we […]

Beauty in the Ordinary


motherhood, travel

I pulled into our driveway in a flurry. I needed to pack my suitcase quickly because I had a flight to catch in a few hours. It had been a hectic morning, full of last minute preparations, including rebooking my flight due to a few complications that arose last minute. I was racing a mile […]

May Book Review

This month I finished three books! I read the first book quickly, and then life took a hiatus when we found out the baby I was carrying in my womb no longer had a heartbeat. However, I quickly found comfort by jumping back into my usual patterns, which includes reading, so I was able to […]

Music to My Ears, Comfort for My Heart


miscarriage

  Happy Hump Day! I mentioned previously that music has been such a powerful source of comfort for me as we waited to become pregnant after our ectopic pregnancy, and most recently, when we lost our baby at nine weeks. A lot of these songs have been my prayer and anthem in many ways, and […]
