Ahhh. I'm so sick of being an emotional mess. 
Why is it that I can cry at the drop of a hat.. or before?
I cry about anything and everything. 
Happy things, sad things, funny things.. everything. 
It's not that time of month (not even close) and I'm not pregnant. 
So what's my problem? 


  1. Sometimes a girl's just gotta cry, and boys need to learn to wipe the tears! You have A LOT of things going right now so just take a deep breath, hold it... (not til you pass out) and let it out. You are probably sub conscientiously preparing for the next big change in your life. There is a point in between called LIMBO and it's usually an uncomfortable place to be but you will learn so much from it, if you let it.
    I'm sure that mixed in there is a bit of sadness to leave your "Honeymoon Island" and the major lessons that you learned there. The good news is is that you get to take those lessons with you on the next leg of your journey.
    It will all work out, just have faith that it will and let it happen.
    I love you!

  2. It's hawaii. I swear it'll do that to ya. It's just overwhelming to be so far away from family and it's especially difficult during the holidays. Crying is just the easiest way to get those feelings out. I cried all the time the last few months before we left. But you're SO close to coming home!! :) That oughta stop some of the tears!!!

  3. I agree with Jess. And maybe stress? Stress just ruins you :( I'm here if you need anything!!

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…

1 Year

It's officially been an entire year since I last held my chunky baby. Some days are doable and some are as if we lost her yesterday. The mysterious thing about grief is comes in waves. Sometimes just small tidal waves brushing the shore full of heartache and sometimes 40 foot waves of rage, anger and depression. You never know which is coming and when. Sometimes it comes from a small argument with a sister and quickly spirals into grief.. arguments are rarely ever about what it started as. I had a break down the other day, I can't even remember what sparked it but it was harsh. It was brutal. I've come to realize that I will grieve as long as I live. That as long as I miss her and as long as I love her I will grieve.

We want her so badly and my mind can't seem to stop from thinking that. I know I can't have her here, but that's all I think about. When I look at my friends babies, at dinner, at the movies, I want her there with us. She would be the same age as t…
