When the whole of the world seems overwhelming. I’ve decided to turn off and tune out for just today and instead focus on the tiny sweet things in life ✨ #mylittlemplskitchen #acolorstory

This is completely crazy talk and I’m going to regret saying it, but if it’s going to be so damn gloomy can we bring on the snow? ✨❄️🌲#acolorstory

Crisp autumn morning.
Staring down at the fresh new pages of a new journal.
Indecisive about the first words,
Because I know once I start, this next chapter has really begun.
My eyes wander to the swirls in my cup and linger there a while.
How lovely it is to sit with myself for just a moment.
I close the book,
I’ll try again tomorrow.

I love the cozy vibes the house takes on in November. From sweaters hanging from doorknobs, to lit candles at 5pm, to knitting in my hands being snuggled on by the occasional kitten in a scarf.
The ever on rotation tea kettle warming on the stove provides hot water for tea that pipes up long streams of steam into the crisp air. It's cozy in here and I'm leaning into it. ✨☕️ #mycatdarcy #acolorstory

When I'm sad, confused, or depressed I always end up here. Barefoot and dreaming up things that heal and nourish my soul. Food is the most sincere sort of medicine and I'm hopeful it will heal me in the end✨🍊 #mylittlemplskitchen

I always knew there would be hard days.
I just never knew it would hurt as badly as it did the day I found out.
That grief can return again and again as raw and fresh as the day your heart was broken.

It's not easy to share.
So thank you to each one of you who messaged me to say my sharing helped you.
That helped me too ✨

I hold the warmth of this time of the year in my heart long after the trees are naked and cold 🍂🍁 #acolorstory

Met my friend for coffee this morning before my grief counseling session. And we ended up talking about all the things I planned to talk to my therapist about. After having two opportunities to think about the things that are on my mind, I have a little something I want to tell you.

To all my sisters I want to say, don't hide your grief and your emotions if you don't want to. Talk to someone. Whether it's a friend, family, or a therapist, get it off your chest. I don't want to live a life where I don't talk about my babies and that's a choice I've made consciously. So if you are grieving and don't want to hide it, don't. You are human and you are allowed to feel the things you are feeling.
After talking to both of them I drove home and happened to pass my OB's office and something different happened. I had a happy thought about the future. I didn't think about all the horrible memories of the past six months or the anxieties those memories give me. Instead I just focused on that tree lined road, and how beautiful it looked in the present, and how it will look in the future. With hope that the past is firmly planted behind me and the best yet to come ✨

I've always envied cats abilities to make themselves cozy anywhere they rest their heads. #mycatdarcy

Life seems so much brighter today. Time doesn't fully heal your wounds but it does help you get distance and perspective. So thankful for the time I needed to feel closure with my loss and once again find the light there is in this life ✨
