8 weeks

8 weeks and 1 day ago we laid you to rest my sweet girl. Oh how much you are missed! I remember a few blogs back that I was talking about how I was feeling so much guilt for my grandpa being gone and I haven’t felt the guilt with Holland. Now, I feel it […]

Easter time 🐣

Easter is one of my favorite holidays!

Hollands Due date

How is that you are almost 3 weeks old but you aren’t even suppose to be here till tomorrow?! You should still be in my belly!  I know I’m not the only one that still “feels” the baby kick after birth even when they aren’t in there. I think just all my stomach muscles are […]

Broken hearts, sad goodbyes, & warm hellos

Have you ever felt your heart physically breaking? And there is nothing you could do about it? That aching pain in the pit of your stomach because something is missing? I have.  Growing up my grandpa was always our babysitter. Not very many grandpas can watch kids all day or enjoy their grandkids like a […]
