One year ago this week, I lost my baby.

One year ago this week, my husband and I left our camp jobs and moved back to MN (and in with my mom).

One year ago this week, I won a ticket to BlogHer10 in NYC. I needed joy & direction.


This week, I am 19 weeks pregnant, with a babe with a heartbeat.

This week, I will clean our house.

This week, I give thanks that it’s now this year. I am deeply grateful for daily joy & purpose, and filled with wonder at the life we’ve been blessed with here.

Thanks for being on this journey with me.
