something to think about

i was on facebook earlier today and one of my friends had said jokingly "if youre looking for something to cry about read this.." so i clicked on it. it was a blog of someone that one of her friends follows. a blog about a family. a family that is going through a trial. youll have to read it to get the full affect. its (if you love to read, you will love this story more, its kind of long). their story made me think about things. think about what we are really here on this earth for. it touched my heart. it will make you cry guaranteed. it will also make you run to your husband/wife/children and tell them how much you love them.

there is short mormon message out now that also touches my heart. i was able to watch this when i was home for my surgery. then chris and i went to the temple the other day and they had it playing in the visitors center. so we watched it. you can watch it here this story will also make you think twice about life. i especially love this story because she talks about how looks are not everything.

just thought id share these touching stories with you because i needed to hear them today. i have not been super nice to chris today. (im sorry babe!)


  1. James and I read that blog the other night; such a sad story. And so is the one about the Nielsons. Things like that really do make you stop and think, huh? Have you seen this other one from Mormon Messages? (copy and paste it) It's so sad but such a great lesson is taught! But we all have bad days too and I'm sure that Chris knows without a doubt that you love him :) You guys are cute!

24 weeks (December 2017)

It's been awhile.
Like over a year since I last posted something here. I figured it was about time to update everyone. I announced that we were expecting a couple months ago and then left it at that. And several dear friends are asking for updates. And a lot is happening. 
So the quick (maybe not so quick) update is.. all is well! 

1. We're pregnant! (In case you didn't know). I am currently 24 weeks along with our miracle baby girl (Lucy)! We have had about 20ish ultrasounds and too many hours sitting in a waiting room to count. Being high risk is no joke. But I'm not complaining because we get to see our wiggly little girl almost every week!  When we first found out we were expecting (which is a whole post on it's own) we were given the option of genetic testing. After praying and fasting about this we decided to opt out. The test was a CVS (Chorionic villus sampling) where a needle would be inserted into to placenta to test the fluid and baby's DNA and that …

I'm going to start by saying I'm on heavy doses of Lortab and Tylenol. I'm seriously having a hard time making complete sentences but I want this to be out so you know what happened. From the beginning of this journey, Chris and I have felt like this has been such a "team" trial. We've had so much support and so many prayers offered on our behalf and that it's such a devastation to everyone that this happened. You are my team and I want you to be in on everything.

I honestly can't believe I'm sitting down at the computer and starting to write this out, again. Trying to explain what just happened, again. Trying to find the words to describe accurately how I feel. So here's my best.

I had felt her move very gently only three times on Wednesday so when I woke up on Thursday I went straight for the sugary cereal in hopes that would wake Charlotte up and get her moving. I ate and waited. I grabbed a cold water, drank half and …

Two, Four + Six years

Today is kinda a big day. Everything is hitting today. Our sweet Conor would have been two years old a week ago, Owen turned four and in a couple weeks Chris and I have been married for six years. That's a lot of anniversaries. Some great to remember and celebrate and some not. Everybody has those.

Our little buddy Conor would be TWO! See that muffin top down there? That's Conor not Cafe Rio, well maybe a little of both. Conor leaves some strange memories. Although we lost him, his soul, his body, I don't miss him. It that terrible or what?

After his early surprise delivery I was shocked, there's no doubt about that, but I almost immediately felt like he was a big, grown, man taking care of me. Owen didn't realize what was happening, well none of us did. He didn't ask about him everyday, he was just too young to understand. It just didn't seem like the end of the world. Everyone can handle a certain amount of pain and heartbreak right? Compared to Charlotte…
