A Day That Will Live In Infamy.

This blog, and all of you reading it, mean the world to me.

Not a whole heckofalot can keep me from this space, so you have to know I’ve had a very good reason for being absent these past two-ish weeks…


This is why.


Meet our miracle, Clara Noelle.

Our little Pearl Harbor Day baby, born at 1:15am on December 7th.

5lbs 2oz, 17.25 inches



Heartbreakingly beautiful.

And most importanly, HOME.


This is why, guys.

Never, ever, ever give up.

    Would it be appropriate to talk about labor and delivery here? I’m curious about your experience!

    I’ve just spent the last few hours reading through your blog and to finally see your happy ending (or beginning) brought tears to my eyes. She is absolutely beautiful. It gives me hope that I will also one day get my happy ending.

Summertime Sadness

A safe space where I discuss the racing thoughts in my head, personal struggles, and day-to-day activities while struggling with mental health and mood disorder issues. My personal goal is to reduce the stigma that comes with mental health and mood disorders, by talking more about it.
