Born and raised in the mountains East of San Diego I was always intrigued with the endless blue sky, why the ground could tell me it was going to rain and  where the stream ended and began. I was also obsessed with boys for as long as I can remember. Countless diary entries on why I didn’t think I’d ever get married or find “the one” are hidden under beds in notebooks covered in pictures and gel pen doodling.  As a 13-year-old girl all I could see was what was right in front of me. Time pressed on and I learned that the sky has no end, the streams begin and end and split and dry up all thanks to the seasons and the snow at the top of the mountains I longingly stared through my window, I learned that the dirt and the trees radiate their longing for the rain moments before they are satisfied and I learned that I would find “the one” hiding in plain sight. The urge to write came from deep within, I couldn’t feel a thing without telling the pages of my journal. Through the years I found myself engaged in a search for myself, finding letters and papers of those who came before me and those who made me. Once the fire was lit, I had to chase the flame. Flash forward to the current day, it’s safe to say that my life revolves around two things. My family and the past. Filled with baby smiles, snuggles in the middle of the night and the words on the page and screen that propel me forward into the future where I will see my babies grow and my curiosity met with facts and history, ever changing and allowing me the kind of joy only found in fairy tales.

    I just came across your blog and I want to say thank you for being so open and honest and informative about IVF. I start my shots Tuesday and reading your blog has eased my mind a bit. It’s so crazy I thought I was reading about my own life.. We have had a few of the same experiences, tragedies. Wanted to say Congrats on your Twins and hope to show you my IVF babies soon— :0) Gabby

    Hi Holly~
    I just visited your blog for the first time (I found it through Instagram) and had to tell you how much I appreciate your stories and writing style. You are so real and down to earth, and reading your words, I’ve choked up a couple times and chuckled out loud a few times too. Your babies are absolutely precious!! Thanks for sharing yourself and your life.
