Super crappy pic but having a super awesome time. We went to Sprinkles, then came to the airport to eat them while watching the planes.

I hung out without Miko for a few hours and I didn’t think much of it and then I felt guilty for not feeling guilty 🤦🏻‍♀️ Thanks for a fun night, @dee.duuh!

I haven’t taken care of my back (kids, do your stretches!) and every time I carry Miko, I feel undeserving of it. Thank you Ergo for being good to my poor undeserving back. I blogged (!!!) on carrying her for the first time at Disneyland for her first birthday. #mikoandmom

My favorite book of 2017 was The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (a digital copy because bf and holding a heavy book is not a skill I have) I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads because I was so crushed it ended. It was glamorous, heartbreaking, and suspenseful. This is a book that will stay with me for a long long time. I didn’t reach my Goodreads goal but I did read a lot of fanfiction (don’t judge lol). My favorite writer this year was Ffanon on ao3. Here’s to more reading in 2018! What should I read next year? What was your favorite this year?
Thank you, Mordecai, for breaking my heart, to make it a little softer for them. #hellomikorey

Merry Christmas from little Miko! 🎄

Just something on my mind lately. I don’t know why I’m so nervous to share this 😬 This account is mostly for my things, and Miko’s account is for my people. But I look at my account, and this is a personal blog but there’s nothing personal about it lately. Miko is my person and I want to share but I also know how painful it is to lose a child and then see your feed flooded with them. I also can’t ignore the joy Miko has been in my life and I want to celebrate that, too.
I want to support every stage of child loss, including a new baby or another loss. This feed is mostly my house but it can’t be much of a home if she’s not a part of it. I’m so glad was able to share her first year on her own account but I would love to share more Miko here, too. 💓

2018 is about devotion. Devoted partner, faith, mother and friend. Thank you @brooke.averill for the sweet reminder I get to wake up to every day.

I couldn’t tell Miko her new toy was really a purse she can’t use for a few years. I mean, look at this kid 😍 And yes, she wore her Halloween costume to the @shopharveys Snow White release party 🤷🏻‍♀️ #hellomikorey

Christmas cards barely arrived! I feel like a year should be enough time to get the hang of this whole motherhood thing (LOL) but when things are getting organized, something happens. Always a big mess but always happy!
What a precious photo of me blocking Miko’s view 🤷🏻‍♀️

Just feeling grateful and thinking of the battles lost and won to get my fairy tale ending

I’m sure there’s some kind of inspirational message here about flowers blooming but I had to share my garden progress. Just a few weeks ago I showed @pinksuedeshoe my roses cut down and with some love and patience, they are blooming 🌸

I’ve had my eye on this pin from @mooreaseal for some time and she’s having up to 70% 👀 and the store is still giving back to non-profits 👏👏 Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, don’t forget to support your favorite shop!

I finished @adamjk’s latest book and I have so much to say about such a little book. There were so many things I wanted to quote, such as “As for rainbows, well you’ve got to weather the storm first.” and “There’s no need to polish this turd. Failing sucks” on the topic of failing. However, this one I loved most. The book is meant to be for professional creatives, but it really spoke to me as a SAHM who lost that burst of creative energy to PPD. Thanks for such a beautiful book!
