Keep going. Keep pushing. Keep striving to be better than you are. Every day I wake up, I give myself a little pep talk. Each day, I get the opportunity to have the best day of my life. I can be a better wife, daughter, sister, friend, and leader. Some days are filled with self-doubt… Continue reading Life. It goes on…. (5/13)
March is endometriosis awareness month. Something that, ten years ago, would have meant very little to me. My best friend called me one day in 2007 as I was walking from Brady commons to meet my roommate at Cornell so that we could have lunch.

I caught an episode of Friends the other evening as I was doing my chores and it was the episode where Monica and Chandler found out they couldn't have kids.… Continue reading Uterine Hospitality
It's amazing how quickly you adjust to a new normal. I've been off of shots for a while and I've had a countdown in all of my planners to the day I get to start again. They signify progress and hopefully the last stop on this journey to my sweet babe. I took my last… Continue reading Shots & Pills. My favorite cocktail.
I'm fascinated both by the concept and the execution of Hatchimals. They are these little creatures that live in some weird plastic egg that "hatch" whenever you give them enough love and attention. They're like virtual pets for 2017-2018. For whatever reason, prior to watching YouTube videos (because no, I don't own one) about their… Continue reading Hatchimals, the acoustic version
