The End of The Road

  Just a few short weeks ago, my sweet little baby boy turned two years old. And within that same week, said sweet little baby boy slept the entire night through and stirred not a single, solitary time. When the morning broke, he fully awakened and made no move to nurse.

Travel in an Uncertain World

Shortly after returning with my small children from their first trip abroad to France, a gunman opened fire in the very area of the Champs-Elysees that we had walked, browsed, and posed for pics on just days before.

Judging a Book On its Cover…And A Few Pages Inside, As Well

Our First Night Apart

This pic of us tonight could possibly be the last of us breastfeeding. In just a few hours I will be boarding a plane and leaving you for the next few days. I should be asleep right now, but sleep won’t come. My nerves are bad and I am feeling extremely anxious. Not so much […]
