Learning to Breathe

Sorry I haven't posted anything new in a while! I have been very busy and very tired.

My health is definitely better than it was, but I'm now trying to get a minor Crohn's flare under control. I'm on a new medicine that should help and won't be harmful to a baby if I get pregnant.

I've been working a lot and trying to focus on getting my health back on track. I have my moments of sadness but, all in all, I'm doing pretty well emotionally.

I'm really proud of the business that I have built. I am finally feeling like I've succeeded at something in my life. Everyone needs to feel like they have succeeded, especially those of us who have trouble doing the one thing we never imagined would be a struggle - having a child. Find what you love and do it. Work hard at it. Trust me, it helps.

I feel like I'm learning how to live a more normal life, like before. As long as we are trying to build our family things won't be completely normal (whatever normal is), but I'm trying not to let the sadness consume me. I feel like I'm learning to breathe again.

I don't have much more to say. So I'll leave you with an adorable picture of my two sweet girls.


  1. Look at those faces. Adorable. That duck would not last long with my pup though, she shreds things.

    1. Their ducks don't last long either. None of their toys do. Piper destroys toys. She destroys a lot of things. She once ate my husband's Bible. She is just so darn cute that we put up with it anyway :)
