Be Grateful

I was sitting here thinking of everything in my life I am grateful for. There is much more to this list, but I figured I’d share some with you. Today I am grateful for: My husband Our precious son, Little Q Our new adoption opportunity Family Friends Our jobs Our home Food on our table …

Passionately Organized People

My husband made fun of me last Saturday because I was downstairs by 6:30 AM, excited to go organize the basement along with capturing before pictures. Once it’s completely finished, it’ll make for some great before and after pictures, at least I hope so. There is currently a large pile for a garage sale, a …

Adoption 101

Infertility affects an overwhelming number of people. According to resolve.org, 1 in 8 couples (or 12% of married women) have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. (2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth, CDC) When dealing with infertility, it seems like you are the only one, but it also seems like the numbers should be …

Big Brother!

More details to come, but we wanted to share our joy!

Lists, Bathtubs, and Faith

The realization that the laundry isn’t clean and put away, dust is stacking up on furniture, and the house hasn’t been picked up in a couple of days has sunk in. Everyone laughs and says that’s what happens when you have a baby and all the extras that come with them. I haven’t quite figured …

Christmas Spirit

I have been struggling coming up with something to write about lately and while trying to concentrate on that topic my brain kicks over to what needs to get done before Christmas. Gifts mailed out, check. Christmas cards sent, check. Buy stocking stuffers, somewhat checked. Figure out what we’re doing for little Q’s birthday a few …

Holiday Traditions

Santa, trees, and elves! Lights, music, and food! Establishing traditions while little Q’s a baby seems like the most appropriate time, even though I’m certain we’ll add to over the years. Q saw Santa for the first time this weekend and we are planning to take their picture together soon. To begin with, we had to point Santa …

Holiday Kindness

The holidays can be stressful and hard. The hassle of acquiring the perfect gift or conceiving what you want to get but can’t find it, more traffic, money pressures, crowded stores, and congested parking lots. Planning and preparing a meal(s), setting up decorations, baking, and attending programs and parties. It can be traumatic and taxing, especially for …

National Adoption Month – Our Adoption Story

Children are amazing, truthful, funny, intelligent, and so full of energy. I love kids! I’d like to share our adoption journey in the hopes it may help others who are possibly pursuing that option. It takes a great deal of work, makes you think about different circumstances, and situations, but is absolutely worth every second …
