June 15th was my birthday! Usually I dislike getting a year older but this year I was ready to call it on 35…see ya! Hello 36, I am ready for you!
Last year on my 35th birthday, two lines popped up on a pregnancy test and we found out we were having another baby! Little did I know what would be in store for me. Let’s just say, I hope I do not have any more brushes with death planned in the future.

The highlight of my 35th year was definitely the birth of my son Maverick, who completed our family. I am beyond thankful I get to be called his Mama!
Last year was really rough too, physically, mentally and emotionally for my entire family. Personally I am still working out some of the kinks from having been through such a traumatic experience, but I am ready to start this new year off fresh! I think as woman in general it is so easy for us to make light of everything and just to say “I’m good,” when asked. What I am learning is it is okay to acknowledge when we are experiencing difficulties and instead of surpress and hide these feelings, we should speak up. Sometimes you can’t get through things on your own and it is okay to seek guidance and help.
As the saying goes, another year older, another year wiser. 🙂
