Happy Thoughts

A New Year

2016. It sounds so weird! I think I am still stuck somewhere in the 90s.

A new year brings a new perspective.

A fresh start.

A clean slate.


All good things. All things that I need.

Here is to a happy and healthy 2016!

*It’s already started to be amazing. I am going to be an Auntie again to another little sweetie in August. I love my niece SO much and am so excited for another niece or nephew.

UPDATE: It’s a boy!  Hudson Lewis is due on August 9th. Can’t wait to welcome another precious baby into my arms. I wish his cousins were here to play with. But they aren’t. Still blessed.

Looking Up

I don’t want this blog to be a negative place. I do need to get my feelings out about the loss of William and Harrison, but I think I will be moving on to positive posts and things in life I’m excited about. My love and sadness about losing them will never disappear, but I am going to order a pretty journal and handwrite my feelings in it. That way, my tears can fall on the pages instead of on the keyboard of my Macbook Pro!

So…looking up. I will find 3 things to be positive about today.

ONE: We are planning a second honeymoon very soon and I’d love to renew our vows as well. With all we have been through, we have become closer than ever and I want to shout from the rooftops how much I love my husband. Considering we got married when I was in the middle of finishing my degree, we didn’t get much of a honeymoon phase. We are looking at St. Lucia, I’d LOVE to go there. Plus they have a Sandals, which we loved. Our Sandals Antigua honeymoon was perfect and so romantic.

TWO: We are starting to plan how to finish our basement. We are getting quite a bit of money saved up and I’d LOVE to have it done by Christmas. It will be our main TV/Media spot, plus we will have an extra full bathroom bringing our total baths to 3.5. Also, it will be a great area/suite for guests to stay in if we have visitors. Getting the basement done will also improve our insulation, and I’m hoping once it’s done our winter heating bills will go down. (Last year, our monthly bill was around $500-$550!)

THREE: I am so looking forward to the doctor approving physical activity again. My pregnancy was pretty hard from the beginning. Not only could I not work out at ALL, but towards the end, I could barely walk, except to the bathroom. Also, I was afraid to sneeze, cough, and even turn over in bed. Bedrest wasn’t fun. Although I would have done absolutely anything for my boys, I never wanted to go on a run more that when I was barely allowed to move. You never know how important exercise and general movement (walking!) is until you can’t do it anymore! I am signed up for a 5k in remembrance of the boys in October. Maybe this will be the kick in the ass I need to workout again.

That’s all for now. Looking forward to more positive posts and looking for the good in every day.
