You’re Allowed to be Happy

We spent this Thanksgiving in New Hampshire with my husband's family. It was wonderful! It was big and loud and full of laughter; just how Thanksgiving should be.

What Infertility Has Taught Me

Yesterday was the last day of infertility awareness week. If you follow me on instagram, you have seen my multitude of posts. This year's theme was "flip the script" which aligns with the purpose of my blog beautifully.  I so badly wanted to post a video to describe my final thoughts on infertility awareness week,… Continue reading What Infertility Has Taught Me
