My dearest Ryan, Earlier this month, I was doing laundry and you came over to give me a kiss. We had yet another emotionally challenging week and for some reason you felt the need to apologize… “I’m so sorry this has been so hard.” I remember looking up at you and saying “It’s okay honey.”…

Well this Easter was weird for us. It was the first Easter in thirteen years that we’ve missed spending time with family… but it’s for the best reason ever!

Some of you may know that we had the immense fun of watching our little second cousins a couple of weekends ago, and it was an absolute blast! We’ve gotten to watch Everett and Briella several times in the past, but this was the first time they got to spend the night. So we got…

I’ll be honest and admit that I’ve been hesitant about writing this post. I certainly don’t want to confuse people or lead them to believe that I believe all birth mothers are scam artists or that birth mothers are terrible people. This could not be FURTHER from the truth! I am in awe of the…

I know that many of my friends have been seeing me post transformation pictures and information about Plexus quite a bit on my facebook page. It’s so easy to see the changes that have happened in me because they are pretty visual. Losing 70 pounds is no small thing… literally. But there’s something I want…

Tomorrow marks thirteen years… thirteen years since you and I officially became a couple. Some days it feels oh so long ago… But at the same time – I still remember it so clearly… We were so young. I was in high school. You were fresh in college. You were the first guy I really…

I’ve been putting off writing this post for a while now. Honestly, because I don’t want to talk about it. But I’ve been feeling God push me to release this and I promised to be more vulnerable again this year. Plus, I keep reminding myself that others may benefit from hearing our story. So here…
