It’s been a while since I’ve posted a general life update, so I figured it was time for one. Things have been quiet on the blog lately, but it’s not because I’m not writing. I have 3-4 posts in the works at the same time, but I can’t seem to finish them. It’s like my stamina only goes so far, and then my brain switches gears so I start something new. I think part of me feels obligated to write compelling content about infertility, treatment options, etc, but nothing I’ve been coming up with lately feels good enough, so I stop and move on to the next subject. I’ve been more active on Facebook and Instagram instead. I intend to remedy this soon because this little corner of the internet is precious to me. Sometimes I forget that it’s okay to write… simply just to write. Sometimes just to say “hello, this is my life right now” is fine. So today, that is what I am doing.
Life in General
As a distraction to infertility, I’ve been pouring my energy and attention into planning, thinking about, and dreaming of our upcoming vacations. This year we have 3 trips planned:
- June: Cincinnati to visit my dear friend Emily from college (Hi Emily!) and go to King’s Island. I am so looking forward to catching up and watching our girls play together!
- July: Gatlinburg for my 10-year wedding anniversary (15 together) with Glenn. Just the two of us! We have an AirBNB waiting on us in the mountains and I can’t wait! We plan to keep this very low key and cheap. I need a good hike so we’ll definitely find a trail with a waterfall to visit and hope it’s not burned down from the recent wildfires. I look forward to putting a little money back into the economy of the Smoky Mountains.
- October: Legoland and Disney World! I told you guys we’d go back to Disney in 2 years when we went on our last trip (read about it here), and we’re doing it! But this time, we’re adding a stop to Legoland before hitting Disney, so that will be really exciting. I’ve been reading menus, pinning tips and tricks on Pinterest, scouring Etsy for cute clothes to wear, and researching options for our costumes for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. My group went as Alice in Wonderland characters last time, and this time we chose Peter Pan. So if you’re seeing a lot of Neverland related pins on my Pinterest lately, now you know why!
In other news, Zoey turns 7 in a little over 3 weeks, so my momma heart has been boohooing as I look at old pictures of her and think about what a miracle she truly is.
