5 months already
Our sweet girl is 5 months today. Already. It has been a challenging, beautiful, extremely high, extremely low, tiring, and growing 5 months. We haven't always had the answers. We haven't always done things perfectly. We haven't always done things the same way as our parents. but we have been broken, flawed, growing, crazy parents and … Continue reading 5 months already
It has been a while. I needed a break away from blogging to just enjoy the final months of pregnancy and preparations.

We can't … Continue reading our twig

Today I marry my beloved.
From my Journal, October 5th, 2013. "This morning I woke up, with the knowledge that within a few hours I will be someone's wife. This is a morning I thought may not come.

There were 3 bridesmaids, gowns of soft pink, with perfect bouquets, matching shoes and flawless makeup. The bride's diamond-encrusted headpiece glittered in the chandeliers, and her dress of tulle, and silk, layer after layer, moved with her as she made her way around the circle- a captivating spectacle.
