Sundays are for Snuggles

It's rainy and cold in Columbus. Such a dreary Monday morning. The good news is I had a really great weekend. Aaron went to New Orleans for a bachelor party so we had a Mommy/Evi weekend. I only had a few small chores to do so I got those done on Saturday, leaving Sunday for …

Good Vibes

It always surprises me how quickly my busy and rushed daily routine can take over my life.  I find myself stressing out about finishing my "to do" list and getting all my daily chores done.  I rush around like a nut and by 10 pm I'm exhausted and feel like my entire day went SO …

A Letter to My Unborn Babies

I’m not going to lie.  Sitting down to write this letter was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life.  Dealing with the loss of two babies in the same year destroyed me.  I feel like I lost a huge part of myself and my heart aches whenever I …
