Josie’s Birth Story

This is a beautiful, touching, amazing birth story. A must read. 🙂


It has been a while since I have added a post to my blog…sometimes life gets in the way, but at the end of the day, there are some stories that just need to be written down. They are life events that simply change you as a person, and this story I want to write down while it is still fresh in my mind!

Twelve days ago I gave birth to my second baby. After my first pregnancy and the birth of our son, I turned into what one might call a bit of a “birth junkie.” There is truly nothing like the oxytocin high of pure joy, relief, and love that exists after a baby enters this world from your body without any medication blocking the release of any of those emotions.

Back from my “break”

I simply don’t know exactly where to start in updating you all on where I’ve been and what we’ve been up to.  

I needed a break.  Living with other people put pressure on me that I didn’t know existed.  We have lived in a very tiny bedroom with all our stuff and us in it for almost 6 months.  In the times where I have had some spare time, I have had zero privacy.  So, I guess I needed a break from blogging because it felt like my life was on display enough…but I have missed it and keeping up with all my mama friends on here…so I’m back.  I hope you don’t mind.  🙂

We are still “homeless,” but currently house sitting for some friends for 6 more weeks.  Decisions need to be made about what to do next, but I am hoping and praying we have a place to move into by the end of these few weeks.  

I need to gather my thoughts about what to write about first, but rest assured you’ll be reading quite a few posts in the coming weeks.  Thanks for reading.
