Alternatively titled: I believe in soulmates, and I believe I found mine. (And I’m pretty sure my husband found his, as well!) *This post will be schmoopy, and mushy, and may seem a bit braggy (though I promise that’s not what I’m going for). Don’t say I didn’t warn you. When Justin and I met, neither […]

Currently…

In an effort to blog more often, I’ve decided to share a few tidbits about what’s going on around here. Perhaps I’ll find the time to make this a regular check-in. Going strong with no sugar or processed food during Lent! We allowed ourselves to take part in “Indulge Sunday” with breakfast from Oakmont Bakery, […]

I know. I know you’re all surprised at this, because so am I. If you know me, you know I am notoriously ANTI-Kitchen. Jut does all the cooking around here, and I have no desire to join him. Except, apparently I do, when it comes to giving up sugar, needing something sweet, and of course, […]

A new year, a new word.

by Lindsey on January 30, 2017

in Just Us

Every year people all over the Internet choose a word to guide them through the year. I have been doing this for a few years as well, and I can honestly say it has made a significant impact on my life. In 2015, my word was Breathe, and I still can’t accurately put into words how it […]

A Tale of Two Dresses

by Lindsey on June 6, 2016

in J&L Start a Family, Just Us

As we approach Althea’s baptism this weekend, the story of my own has been re-told numerous times over the past few weeks, and since it’s hilarious, I thought I’d share it here :) Two important things to note: I had two dresses to wear for my baptism, the one my mom wore for hers, which […]

One Little Word 2016

by Lindsey on January 1, 2016

in Just Us

Last year I wrote this. To be honest, at the time, I had no idea what it would mean for me in the months that followed. I figured I’d have it in the back of my mind for a few weeks and then I would be right back to stressing about our situation. Instead, though, here […]

Taking a Social Media Break

by Lindsey on April 28, 2015

in Just Us

Ever since deciding to complete the 30-day meditation challenge in May, I’ve been going back and forth with the idea of also taking a break from social media for the month. I’ve literally gone back and forth on this for days, and it wasn’t until I just read this post from Ashley, that I am finally making […]

Taking Action

by Lindsey on April 26, 2015

in Just Us

The number one response I get when someone new finds out we’re struggling with infertility is “just relax”. After two years, two diagnoses, and multiple treatments, I know that relaxation is not our problem, but I’m also not naive enough to believe that my stress doesn’t play a factor. I was super high anxiety even […]

Five Random Thoughts

by Lindsey on March 30, 2015

in Just Us

I really want to blog more, and not just infertility updates, so this is my way of getting started with that. I’ve been really super busy at work lately, and the last thing I want to do when I get home is look at my computer, so I’m just not making time for it. For whatever […]

Five Things (+1)

by Lindsey on January 21, 2015

in Just Us

First, stop everything you’re doing and go read this post over on Coffee and Crumbs. This is a 100% accurate description of what it feels like to deal with infertility. Seriously, I can’t get over how perfectly stated it is. I can’t decide which part is my favorite, it’s a toss-up between these two: “It’s […]
