To the scales…

Anyone that knows me knows how much I love food. From the beginning of my existence food has been at the center of my life. My mother has a way with food like no other. Everything she makes is beyond delicious. I have so many beautiful memories of my family gathering together enjoying scrumptious meals…

Rollercoaster of life…

We can all agree that life is like a rollercoaster ride. It has dips and turns and different speeds. Those gut dropping lows in life are the worst. As we all know I experienced such a low. I became lost and I didn’t know who I was. When I finally decided to take back my…

It’s official I have PCOS

Well what can I actually say about this situation? How do I feel? First off I won’t dwell on things I have no control over. I am grateful to my doctor for listening to me and taking interest in me. I have the answers I needed and a plan of action. As many of us…

What now…

Driving home from work I rubbed my belly as I had before the miscarriage. Man … I miss my baby. I felt empty. (a few months later) I have given myself time to mourn. It was slowly a pain that became tolerable. This doesn’t mean that I won’t cry from time to time. My husband…

All these interpretations are correct. There is no wrong answer. This is so deep and personal. In order…

Loss…

November 26th marked the 7th anniversary of my grandfather’s death. I want to take the time to write about my experience with loss.  The loss of my grandfather was the most devastating to date. He was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and was given a short time to live. During that time I did…
