Working through it.

Hey ya’ll. Yep, I’m still alive.  The blog lives. And yep, I just said ya’ll.  Because I guess I’m a southern girl now and that’s what they do. Life has been nothing short of overwhelming as I battle all the feels that come with post-partum depression, missing your friends and family, and being forced to […]

I’m still finding it hard to believe that I’m about to write about what I’m about to write about.  It’s so beautifully surreal, so magical, so life changing.
