So this morning, as usual, Jacey does her little knock on our door, waits patiently for me to wake up and say “come in”, and walks her not-so-little-anymore self to my side of the bed, crawls in, and becomes my little spoon for our morning snugglebuggles.

And IF while on that path I should come… Continue reading Don’t mess with the bliss unless you come CORRECT.
Being a mommy is outrageous. What could be more amazing, terrifying, or rewarding than bearing the entire life of another person in our very hearts and hands.
