For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the one with the big dreams! I’ve never doubted that they couldn’t come true either. I didn’t just dream of being a mom or having a career. I dreamed of having it all. That’s my big problem. I want it all, and I refuse to settle. I don’t refuse to sacrifice though, and that’s how I’ve … Continue reading On Being a Big Dreamer and Wanting it All
The most important thing I’ve learned during pregnancy: I’m not in control, and that’s okay. My body is taking over in ways I would not even know how to explain… meaning, it’s all good. My body was designed to know what to do even when I’m not really sure what’s happening. For example, my hips are naturally (through God’s wonderful design) beginning to shift and … Continue reading Pregnancy: Learning to Not be in Control
I get asked all the time: how did you tell Ryan? Was he there when you found out? Here’s how it all went down ♡ Telling a man that he’s becoming a father is a pretty big conversation. Like huge… and I took the responsibility very seriously. Before telling him about the first positive test, I took 4 more just to be EXTRA sure! I … Continue reading Watching You Become A Dad
Today’s post is one I prayed I would get the chance to write one day, and I am absolutely bursting at the seams to be living out a real dream come true. God has remained so consistent in this whole journey, and I want to begin by saying that I give Him all the glory, honor and praise. He is good now, He was good … Continue reading The Wife is Becoming a Mother
I’m about to be real honest. These last few weeks have been really hard. A morning last week, I walked passed Ryan, and he asked “what’s wrong?” and all I could say was “my brain sucks today.” He didn’t know that the entire morning, every critical, harsh thing I’d ever heard had been running on repeat in my mind that morning. But I put a … Continue reading “I can breathe again”
Welcome to my Pearl year. On one’s 30th anniversary, couples all around the world often celebrate with pearls. Women might receive a pearl necklace or a bracelet to commemorate 3 decades of a relationship or life. Today, on my 30th birthday, I choose embrace my Pearl year. But not with gifts, not with necklaces or earrings (okay maybe a bracelet lol). I don’t need a … Continue reading Turning 30 is a piece of cake.
If you have something to say, say it. God woke me up in the middle of the night with a word, and I feel it in my soul that it’s one that I’m supposed to share. When I first awoke, I kinda looked around and realized it was still completely dark outside, and I wondered if there was a sound or something that had woken … Continue reading If you have something to say, say it.
Good morning, (well, afternoon now) I’m writing this post as I prepare for a follow-up visit to my family doctor in regards to some testing I had done a little over a week ago. I chose the title for this post before knowing the results of my exams because I believe in a powerful God, and I have been praying with an expectancy that regardless … Continue reading Doctor’s Visits & Answered Prayers
Ya’ll, at about 2:30pm today, the Hubs and I decided it was time to get out of the house and get some breakfast….lunch… ehhhh brunch. Yep, we were getting brunch. We’ve been trying to explore the Toronto restaurant scene recently, and we came across George Street Diner. It was amazing. Everything tasted like it was made with love in granny’s kitchen. Seriously, even the bread … Continue reading Toronto Eats: George Street Diner
