I'm wife to Ben - an amazing artist I've known since first grade and my partner in every sense of the word; together we share happiness, laughter, and a mutual love of pasta.
We live in Northern Virginia which means I talk really fast and I give directions based on traffic, not distance. (I have no idea how many miles away the closest Target is, but I can tell you if you hit all green lights it should only take about seven minutes). I have a deep love for the handmade, and have a tendency to lose hours in the glory that is Etsy.
A few years ago I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), and since then have been dealing with the hell that is the disease of infertility. This space reflects our journey - the ups and downs - from failed IUIs, to a miscarriage, to the joy (and fear) of currently expecting our son.
infertility warrior, a miscarriage survivor, and a fierce advocate for infertility rights.
I'm a former English major who believes a bad day can absolutely be turned around with a good book and a sassy shade of nail polish. I'm an avid knitter, and as a lifetime Girl Scout have taken the motto "be prepared" to heart, so if we're ever out and you need a paperclip, band-aid, lotion, gum, hair tie, lip balm, or a kitchen sink, I'm your girl.
Life is messy and a lot of times not fair, but I promise authenticity, and sharing the good, bad, and in between.
Thanks for coming along for the ride!
