What I know going into 2016 and approaching my 50th birthday:
1. Gratitude and kindness are free and I will continue to employ both daily. 2. I know, unequivocally, who my tribe is, some of whom I’ve not met in person, but who have been in my corner in the darkest of times. I will […]
I am saddened by the death of Lisa, someone whose blog I’ve linked to here before and that I’ve followed for over a year. Her writings as she lived with metastatic breast cancer and faced her own death had a profound impact on me.
She often ended her posts with this quote and it is […]
The phobia I don’t have. Happy Friday the 13th!
So many thoughts rattling around in my head, each deserving of a thoughtful post, but where is the time to write? I am happy to be here, in this space, in this moment, while G is napping and my older son is at Lego day camp. […]
My husband and older son are leaving tomorrow morning for NJ for 5 days so that our son can be the ring bearer in a wedding. My husband’s entire family is on the east coast and we haven’t been back since our now 6 year old was 2 1/2. This trip has been more than […]
I have one friend who is cycling at the moment who just got a positive HPT the night before beta. I feel so out of the loop, knowing no one else who is trying at the moment, not even fellow bloggers. I have been counting the days post transfer, knowing she was going to test […]

I could write about the fact that I am still sick, coughing up a veritable lung even today.
I could write about my reaction to and perception of the tragic and heroic events that unfolded throughout the week in Boston.
I could write about how I feel about raising two young sons in an increasingly […]
I’m grateful that:
I knew where to turn when I was struggling to get and stay pregnant. I had excellent care and partnership from practitioners, and support and love from friends. I stuck with it, even through the heartache of 6 miscarriages and never having even close to an adoption match. we had the financial […]
I didn’t want to leave you hanging re: my meeting with K. We met for breakfast at a local restaurant. I hadn’t seen her in several weeks and our last social engagement was the mom’s night out in early June. I wasn’t sure how our exchange was going to go or when in the conversation […]
