"Ours" - Taylor Swift
It's been a mix of blue skies and stormy weather around here.
Steve and I are in the process of absorbing a ton of information and options...
Information and options discussed at our appointment yesterday.
My body is thankfully bouncing back nicely...as I'm already about to ovulate by the end of the week/weekend.
We are using this cycle to continue to recover. Although, I feel a bit beat up at the moment.
There's a lot on my mind and sleep hasn't come easy the past few nights.
I sat in my car after the appointment. Taking a few minutes to have a good cry...feeling the effects of the past few weeks in full force. Steve came home from work and we had one of those long, silent, big bear hugs,
complete with mascara streaks on his shoulder (and maybe a little snot).
Soon, I'll feel ready to write more about it. I suppose, when I feel like typing it out...
that's when I know I've truly taken it all in and gained more peace with it.
No matter what, we gotta keep truckin'.
One foot in front of the other.
My period will be here in 3 weeks or less and we know we're ready to start again next cycle.
I'm thankful for that ready feeling. It's just deciding which road to choose.
And while we figure it all out, we'll cling to each other and the blessings in our life that fill us with hope and strength.
A damn good weekend...
Meeting up with Kelly
for laughs and cries and always a few hundred great photos.
Yes, people, that there is her camera case - a diaper. (She's my long lost sister)
A nice man who had way too many happy hour drinks offered to take our picture.
We happen to like this one better.
Meeting Kelly and Kurt's sweet new addition...munchkin number 3...
There's this feeling I get every time I walk into the hospital room when Kelly has a baby. It's magical, emotional, and so very
Congratulations, friends. <3
Minutes after walking into her room, she told me to pick him up out of his little "bed" beside hers.
Swooping him up in my arms, holding his tiny, 7 hour old body...
It's an intensely beautiful feeling.
He's a warm bundle of love...A bowl of chicken noodle soup...A beautiful new love I'm so excited to watch grow.
Kelly, Kurt and Daxon taught Steve and I things that day. Things, they may not even realize...
Seeing all the pure love and joy between them...
It gives us energy...makes us push on that much harder...
Makes us see just how amazingly worth it
it all is.
Dinner with my step-sister, Danielle and her husband, Josh.
With lots and lots of food.
We needed a bigger table.
Loading up the suv with lots of summer goods. Ready to enjoy a beautiful 75 degree Saturday with the ones I love.
And the music I love
at an outdoor country concert with thousands and thousands of people.
It was a fabulous 14 hour day.
Mr. made me keep my good camera at home...I couldn't argue too much.
Karen and Mom...Yeaa Haw, ladies!
My Buckaroo and I
Love these ladies.
This is the hyena cackle. My mom invented it. I inherited it.
Love this photo.
She was on the hunt. ;)
porta - potty fun.
hot dog fun.
ready for some tunes!
I'll be back at the end of the week. I sense some late, vampire-y nights ahead of me. But, I know they're going to eventually lead us to
the road we're meant for. And I'll keep on remembering that despite all these bumps along the way,
we always pull through...
"This love is ours."
Wishing you a week filled with lots of love and much
p.s.-the site where I add to my playlist is makin' you press play if you want to hear the music.

Have a sweet night. <3
