This was another tough one for me. I actually took the time to look back on just about every blog post I have written on here over the past year and a half. And that was a journey in and of itself... I was reminded again of how much my blog has evolved. Food and my love for cooking has always been a part of it, but my journey as a mother has been heartbreaking, uplifting, beautiful, and bittersweet. I read over many of my posts reliving the moments of sadness over the babies I had lost, the hope I felt when we decided to try again, the elation and fear I felt when I found out I was carrying a precious life again, and how truly beautiful it was when my daughter was finally in my arms. Below are links to two posts that really resonated with me, that I am proud that I had written...
Today is Bittersweet - This is a post I wrote last September on the due date of the baby I had lost in January of that same year. It was also the day that I was 18 weeks pregnant with my daughter.
The Best Way to Honor Those Whom We Have Lost is to Celebrate the Life That We Do Have - This post I wrote for Mother's Day 2011. On this particular Mother's Day, I was a mother to my son and a mama to two sweet angels.
I invite you to read both posts and learn a little more about my journey to the mother that I am now... <3
