Friends it’s been quiet around here and thought it a good time to pop back in. I don’t typically share personal things on here but as I’m getting back into the swing of things I’m feeling like it might be helpful to share. The day after Christmas we were given the best news that made our hearts soar only to have them cave in a bit shortly there after. This week I miscarried. I wasn’t super far along - but the loss of something you thought was going to change your year, your life, your family dynamic, your mamma heart, is still felt. I know so many of you beautiful mammas have had this experience and at different stages - some that can be unbearable - and my heart is with you. Sometimes things like this make our hearts as women united even more.
I was somewhat surprised to see how much this affected my kids. My boys cried for quite a bit - didn’t want to go to school and Oliver kept asking if there was a way to fix it. And miss Amelia was so looking forward to being an older sister. Life takes some crazy turns. I’m not getting any younger ☺️ so this loss also feels a bit like a closed door (even though we thought we had closed that door our hearts had opened right back up again). We’re doing well enough right now. And I know what I do have and am very grateful. I feel this experience to still be beautiful in hard ways. Sending love to all who might be going through anything difficult at this time. 💕😘
