When the tide gets high

Where to start? At 28 we get married, at 29 get our first child and at 30 we welcome twins. Wait, got pregnant again at 30 with twins or delivered them at 30? Haha, delivered them. I was that breastfeeding Mom still figuring out how to handle a baby then boom, pregnant again. And just…

A day in time…

*** It started on one fine evening in the beginning of time; when the clock stood still for a moment and it occurred to me that this was THE one. He ticked every box (at least then) and it was clear in my head that this was the ‘IT’. Over the next many months, I…

I second guessed myself on so many occasions, put stop signs on uncountable instances but still walked through; only certain of my uncertainty.
