With Love

It's hustly and bustly and I'm trying to get things pre-pared.

I've been feeling down the past few weeks. The Holidays are difficult, but I'm happy to see my babies enjoying the season and it brings me joy to watch the wonder in Sy's face as he tells the Christmas story.

We'll be opening gifts just the four of us [together] tonight, as the next few days we'll be party hopping. We have a few special gifts for Sylas and Ivy. One for Sylas came in the most beautiful way and I can't wait to share photos and the story.

May you all have a blessed Christmas.

With love....

In the Midst

Sometimes I can't believe I have a girl.

Somebody pinch me.

Losing Lucia and Cadence was devastating and horrible beyond belief. Not being able to touch their silky skin or dress them in frilly tutus or fix their sweet girly hair makes me ache.

But this girl helps. A lot.

She doesn't in any way replace Lucia or Cadence. No one ever could.

But she makes life better....she is a promise of something better.

She is beauty. Amidst the pain.
