    Our Miscarriage

      Since sharing the news of our miscarriage I haven’t touched on the topic again since. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to. I think its more that I don’t want to scare other women.

    What does it mean to be healthy?

    It’s been hard for me lately.  Life is all about the ebs and flows, the good and bad.
