Well I created something delicious this evening. I found a recipe for hot chocolate cupcakes online and marshmallow icing that I switched up a little bit to make my own! I decided I wanted to try our stevia over sugar this time in an attempt to go more natural with my baking. To my surprise.. it was delicious! I opted for Stevia in the Raw over the other brands based on...

I sit here writing this blog post just as I do every year on the anniversary of my mom’s death. I sit here and I still feel the same. I still remember the exact events of this day six years ago. The phone call to rush to the hospital, the drive there that felt like it would never end. Then sitting by her side talking to her. Loving her. Holding her hand with no response...

Did you ever wonder what it would be like if you weren’t you anymore? If you were suddenly gone, how would your world react? Whatever you imagined is wrong. There’s nothing romantic about death.

So I FINALLY have a free moment to share some memories from Landyn’s 1st Birthday Bash! Friends and family joked it should be on “Platinum First Birthdays!” Although I’m no Tori Spelling (she does Hansen’s cakes, we do Nona’s Sweets! ;)), I tried to create some lifelong memories using some “going all out tips” from A List...

March 10, 2009 at 10pm marked the beginning of everything….. This time last year, I was counting down the days until my scheduled c section. Nothing could make me take my mind off meeting my little man. Everyday I woke up wondering what he would look like, who he would resemble. Would he have my eyes? What about Kyle’s nose? I hoped he wouldn’t have Kyle’s...

A mommy posted on Charlotte Mommies today about how her child’s school asked all of the parents to write their children a love note to be read out loud to the kids at school in honor of Valentine’s Day. I automatically thought of all of the amazing handwritten letters I have from my mom and how much I miss her and cherish those words in my heart. I realized...
