Spring Break 2017.

Hello my friends!  First off, thanks for all your incredible support on my last post and the many kind comments, emails, and thoughts you all sent my way.  I’m sad to hear that so many of you have also experience miscarriage and loss, but very grateful for the conversation surrounding it, so that many others realize they aren’t alone either! 

I also appreciate you letting me just kind of step away for a bit afterward, to regroup and come back today ready to plunge back into the internet.  One thing I wanted to add following that post, was that while I know for many of you it was very new and raw and maybe even hard to read – the main reason I was finally able to open up and be honest about it, is because I’m feeling very much okay these days.  Nothing about that situation has changed, but I’m feeling very good about where we are in life, how I’m doing, and where we are headed.  So all good news on that front!

Last week was our official spring break from school, and we had BIG plans for an exciting week wihth Grandma in town for a visit!  She was here over Christmas but I ended up being sick with the flu almost the entire time, so I convinced her to come back for a re-do in the spring.  The weather looked a bit iffy for her visit, so we took advantage of any sun we could get.  We kicked off her first day with a visit to Seawolf Bakery for delicious breakfast treats!
