Door County

Right now, I'm working on a post in regards to how I'm doing with the 2nd anniversaries of the babies death. My grieving has such a different feel than a year ago, and I think....I hope....some healing has taken place.

In the meantime, I thought I would finally tell you about our fabulous trip to Door County for our 4th anniversary. Ryan and I had planned to go alone, but every time I thought about leaving Ivy, I would start to panic. She did great and the whole time we were there, we were wishing we had brought Sylas as well.

As I try to think of some amazing things we did, nothing really comes to mind. It was all the little parts of the trip that made the whole so incredible.

It was the coffee...

the company...

and the pure relaxation...

Thank you again to Dawn and her family for such an incredible gift.

P.S. (Can I do a P.S. on a blog?) For those of you who asked, the carrier that Ivy is in is an ergo baby carrier. Though a little spendy, it is worth the investment if you are serious about babywearing. It is the only carrier I own that does not hurt my back or shoulders. Yesterday, I did a little gardening with Ivy in the ergo using the back carry position and she was asleep in 5 minutes. Like I said, worth every penny.


  1. WOW who took the pictures? I love them....

  2. Ryan took the pics. So glad you like them!

  3. Brianna-

    This is actually a comment in response to your June 6th post. Have you heard of Dr. Jan Brunstrom at St. Louis Children's hospital? She is a CP specialist (and has CP herself). I know it's a long way from where you are, but she might do a phone consult? Worth a try.

  4. I'm so glad to see proof you had a good time :-) Cute coffee shop! Perhaps you could go again in the fall as a family? Praying for you during these difficult few weeks. Dawn M.

  5. I love, love, love my Ergo. Did you get the infant insert? I got mine when my daughter was 8 months old so no need. Just thinking towards the future, when ever we would have the need!

  6. So sorry that this is such a difficult time of year for you....

    Also - I just have to ask, since I'm a canuck and all.... what exactly is Door country, and how did it come by it's name?


Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I love hearing from you.

P.S. I'm sorry for the word verification step, but oh, my. I'm getting lots of spam.
