Hi, Parents! I see you. Have you seen you in a while? Like really taken a look in the mirror and asked, "Honey, how are you?" We're five months into one of the weirdest life-experiences and I don't really know how to answer that question myself.

When you’re cleaning out your nightstand and you find the list of baby names you made the night before you lost the baby. It was just over a year ago and we decided to tell our son that I was pregnant. We were so overwhelmed that it was finally happening — we couldn’t contain our excitement. The three of us sat down and had such a fun time exploring our favorite names. Some were jokes and some were serious. I remember putting the list on my nightstand and feeling weird about things. I started bleeding the next day. Painfully and slowly, it lasted days. I must of tucked this list away in my ..read more

So yeah, we’re going to chat about it today.We know this topic runs much deeper than simply breathing deep and t ..read more
