This year, this year ... so much happened.  I wish I had something profound to say.  I can barely string a sentence together so wise statements will have to wait.  I'm on my third cold since Bennett was born (seriously!), exhausted for many reasons, just home from a great trip to Seattle to see family.

2011 was stressful and wonderful and exciting.  It was full of love, joy and some sorrow - always sorrow as life continues without Charlotte.

And this blog grew and grew and grew this year.  I cannot believe so many have found comfort, peace, healing and understanding here.  I am grateful and blessed to have a place to write, share, set down the crazy grief.  When I began writing here I had no idea it would become a large part of my healing.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for reading.

It's been a wonderful year,

and I'm excited to see what 2012 brings.

And speaking of 2012, my new year's resolution: sail through 2012 without a baby in my belly.  I was pregnant for part of 2009, 2010, and 2011.

Happy new year, friends!


  1. Happy new year my dear. And I'm placing a private bet on what your life will look like a year from now :)

  2. Love, love, love seeing you and Bennett together.

    Much love, joy, peace and healing in 2012 to you and yours!
