On Courage…

Lou & Mel, My beautiful babies, you have no idea the courage it took to make you. One day you will know, but for now you sit in ignorant bliss soaking up the love we shower you with. The day we learned that we would not have children without serious medical intervention we were shattered. We put it away in…

The Birth of Louis Joseph and Melody Claire…

****Disclaimer***** Graphic birth, surgery and placenta photographs to follow****** I knew that we would have twins. The second they showed us those two little embryos, I knew that I would meet my son and daughter. I was riddled with fear throughout the pregnancy. I used my doppler fairly often and became a pro at finding their heartbeats early on. I…

Lazy Monday and Tuesday… and Wednesday…

Most people enjoy the weekends, they think it’s a time to relax and be with their families. For me though, it’s different. Friday-Sunday I have to wear deodorant and get out of bed because I’m usually spending time with my husband, going out to dinner or hanging out with his family.

It’s amazing. It’s the greatest thing…

Power…

Never underestimate the power of classical music while writing. Never underestimate the stupidity of those around you. Never overestimate the brilliance of your professors, they are not God, they are human. They…

Hibernation or Denial… You Choose…

So, remember that one time when I was 2 weeks away from graduating and decided it was time to start slacking off? No? Oh. Right. That’s because you haven’t been hanging out with me for the past week. Yes, in my defense it was Thanksgiving break, but still… There are about 10,000 things I should have done, still need to…

Shakespeare and Vomiting…

I probably shouldn’t be writing this. I should be meditating or something. I should be taking a bath reading my lines. I should be sleeping, but sleep is for people who don’t have anxiety disorders and stress induced IBS. Instead I just chugged a 5hr energy and plan on spending the next hour crying in the shower, which happens to…
