Be Still My Soul

Yesterday was a rough day for me. Let's flash back about 6 years. February of 2014. I had a doctor's appointment (on my birthday) with my new PCP hoping to gain some insight on my unidentified chronic illness.

This and That

We've been in the midst of a super busy, hectic season of life recently. My husband was in a car accident last week, and he wasn't injured, thank the Lord.

But, it was encouraging to be surrounded by reminders of Who ultimately … Continue reading Baby #4 update

Oh this child... It had better be exceptionally cute because this around the clock nausea is ridiculous. Then there's that awkward moment when your due date is moved forward by a MONTH! WHAT!?!? Here I am, plugging along planning for a January baby and I'm told it's official due date is now before Christmas!!! Well … Continue reading Baby #4 update
