Hope Floats!


Another long silence. But, I’m not sorry. I had to take time to prioritize me. Life was throwing me endless curveballs and instead of dodging them, I had catcher’s mitts on both hands, both feet and I started throwing the heat! I needed to slow my role, wear out my knees, pray with all my […]

Flying Upside Down


I guess by now the suspense is killing you. It’s been quite an extended radio silence, especially from a girl that you all know by now…has A LOT to say:) Earlier this month, like clockwork, I was on my way to see my favorite Doc in the World. Up until this point, my angels, my […]

Astrid’s Angels


To those of you that have been here from the beginning of this blog’s induction, I offer you the utmost gratitude and praise. You’ve seen, heard, and read so much of my journey. Through phone calls, emails, texts, and social media, you have come to me offering support, encouragement, gifts, and a sense of well-being […]

Bee Well


So, I go to Walgreens…a lot. I’d say that I visit my favorite location roughly 10-15 times a month. For one, all but two of my prescriptions come from there, they have an incredible app for my iPhone that reminds me when to refill my meds, I get a text alert when they are ready […]

Loving a Lymie


Hello Friends! Soon, I will compose a longer post about my latest medical voyage with my dear friends Kelly and Ryan, but I did want to give you a quick update… It seems that the last 6 months of treatment have been ineffective. Partially due to the MTHFR gene mutation, but my doc suspects that […]

Farewell, 2013!


Boy howdy! What a year it was!! As the year draws to an end, I reflect on the myriad of events that have led me to where I am today. Last year, I kicked off the 2013 New Year with a trip to sunny San Diego. I never could’ve envisioned what this year would serve […]

These are a Few of my Favorite Things


Like wood burning brightly warming my toes, Neatly wrapped presents with ribbons and bows, Sipping hot cocoa while Beckett sings, These are a few of my favorite things. Your browser does not support the video tag Soft, plush blankets for wrapping up tight, Snuggling with my babies on a cold Winter night, Hanging with Jordan […]

Daily Dose


After Beckett was born, I decided to continue disability coverage benefits through my employer because I knew that something was very wrong with me and something was waaaay off. In case I was ever forced to take an extended leave of absence from work for medical treatment, I elected this coverage which at the time […]
