rainbow baby on it’s way!

A rainbow baby is a baby born after a loss such as a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, or infant loss. We are expecting our rainbow baby next February. We couldn’t be more happy and thankful. The time leading up to this pregnancy has been interesting, there’s been heartache and healing, a roller coaster of emotions, and finally hope and humility.…

dads do things differently

Recently I spent a few days in Las Vegas for a hair show. I was a hair model for a new friend for a hair competition. She won, well we did, I helped too but it was all her vision and she worked so hard. I had so much fun and got a chance to live my modeling dreams. When…

Desert Solitaire

I finished reading Desert Solitaire A Season in the Wilderness by Edward Abbey a couple of weeks back. Chad found this book at a thrift store a while ago and bought it because we had recently watched Damnation and learned a little about who Abbey was.

Motherhood is a river

Motherhood is like a river, a wild river, a long river, a changing river. At times it’s small and vulnerable. At times it’s over flowing- the water, the love, the milk. Always making a new path. Always nourishing. Feeding us, cleaning us, giving us everything freely. They are strong, they are wise within, they are calm, they are raging. Keep them…

reminiscing

Last night I checked my myspace. I still have an account but I don’t really do anything with it, except check it every now and then. I must tell you. It was magical. Magical because my friends that I have on myspace also don’t keep up with it, so it’s like going back in time. I laughed, I think I…

What my dog has taught me…

My little doggy has definitely taught me a lot. She’s quite a character and she brings a lot love, laughs and shaking of heads. Overall I wouldn’t trade her for any other puppy. It’s nice to have her around and learn from her simple ways. I didn’t realize how much she has taught me until I started writing this post.…

have a baby

At one point in my life I was determined to be single, never have any babies and travel the world. I had these two great aunts who lived in San Francisco, they had moved there just after high school and were independent career ladies. They both got married later in life, near forty I would guess, and they both never…

the good earth

Watering the flowers and the garden is so good for me. It’s so nice to be outside before the sun heats everything up and it’s to have a few moments to think about whats been on my mind without being distracted. The flowers bring so much joy and when I water them I always think to myself that I should…

if you love someone, tell them

Tell them right away! You’ll be glad you did and they’ll be glad to know even if you’ve already told them before.   I know this is simple advice but it’s good for the soul.   I think the same goes for friends, if you like spending time with them, tell them. And tell them why. Tell them you’re glad…
