Ordinary Moments

Our four year wedding anniversary was back in December. Now it's June, almost half a year away from the date, and Timothy and I were driving out to Lancaster, PA. We opted not to celebrate our anniversary in December, due to my inability to spend more than 30 minutes sitting upright. We tried again to... Continue Reading →

It’s the Third Trimester, Little Baby!

And hip hip HURRAY for that! On the whole, I'm still not in love with this pregnancy thing. I have fatigue issues, mood swings, and a weird stress induced on and off again appetite. Though oddly enough, I have this wacky feeling I had all of those issues BEFORE I got pregnant. *tilts head and... Continue Reading →

Halfway There

Tah-Dah! We are twenty weeks people (twenty-one by the time this posts), and therefore halfway through this thing called pregnancy! My morning sickness is almost completely gone! I'm finally starting to gain weight. I stuff my face with spinach, eggs, and avocados. I still have an aversion to butter (most dairy actually), toast, and white flour tortillas....

Then it was the day my period was due and I'm fudging my way through my French final in the seat closest... Continue Reading →

To Turtle, or Not to Turtle?

I'm not accustomed to this level of praise from anyone but my husband. My professor is holding out my short story to the rest of the class, my √++ a loud red against the white paper. It's screaming, "loved it" almost literally, because that's what he's written next to my grade. "Look at the format. This is... Continue Reading →

Unconditional

Some people get cranky when they’re tired. Some when they’re stressed. Some when they’re hungry or sick or when they’ve been cooped up inside from a snowstorm. Me? I get cranky for all of the above reasons, but this particular night was the second day in a row that I was cranky from studying for... Continue Reading →
