I'm a stay at home mama and follower of Christ who loves to write. I have two precious babies: Charlotte Ava who was born on May 14, 2010 and Bennett William who was born on September 9, 2011. Charlotte died shortly after birth, she is our sweet angel baby, our little bird who watches over us from the skies. You can read more about her here.
I started this blog to chronicle my pregnancy, life in general, and my love of books. When Charlotte died it became my place to let the grief out. Writing helped me learn, grow, grieve, and process life after Charlotte.
Now that we have Bennett I write about everything from parenting two children - one here, one not - to my kitchen forays (not always successful!) to the books we're reading, to what our everyday lives look like.
I've always loved to write, but lost that passion somewhere in my college years. When Charlotte died I felt the need to write like I never have before. Writing my grief brought me through the great sorrow; it carried me until I could stand on my own. And when the grief rises as it sometimes does I find refuge and peace here.
Please stay a while, I have a lot to share, and I want to get to know you and your story. However you found this place, wherever you are at - whether it be the worst time of your life or the greatest - welcome.
All letters fine to share as long as credit is given and blog address is listed. Thank you!
