The Comeback Kid

Well, here I am, rounding out the last leg of this journey I began last summer.   Back when I made the decision to press pause on my career to really focus on Carter and his health, I didn't know what the future would hold.  I didn't know what was in store for us.  We just… Continue reading The Comeback Kid


Today I Celebrate You

For today's blog post I will focus on someone who truly deserves everything he wants in life.  The greatest thing about him is that he would take everything he wants and trade it to give others what they want.  This guy is the most selfless person I know and I'm so glad to call him… Continue reading Today I Celebrate You

Oh so Sappy!

With my leave of absence being approved by the school board, I'm able to focus on Carter so much more than ever before.  I have the time, energy, and clarity to do anything and everything I can for him.  Since August, I have dedicated myself to his progress and spent countless hours cooking, experimenting, reading,… Continue reading Oh so Sappy!

The Hiatus (I take a lot of those)

Wow.  Where to even begin?  I feel like I say that often.  Probably because it's always such a long time in between my posts.  It's been 5 months since I last posted about my latest conundrum. To be or not to be.... a stay at home mom. That was the difficult question.  Now that I… Continue reading The Hiatus (I take a lot of those)


To be or Not to be…. a Stay at Home Mom

Sometimes in the morning, in the madness that ensues, as I'm watching the clock tick - which causes my anxiety to build - I wonder why I don't just become a stay-at-home mom. This is my latest dilemma.  To be or not to be.  That is the question.  It's a big question that doesn't have… Continue reading To be or Not to be…. a Stay at Home Mom

The Hiatus

Well, hello there! I know, it's definitely been a while.  Apologies to my thousands of fans (insert laugh here) who patiently waited for me to get off my lazy butt and entertain them with a new blog post.  Truth is.... I'm exhausted.  I've been exhausted for about...... well, as long as I can remember. When… Continue reading The Hiatus

Becoming The Nguyens

We finally did it! We got married.  We became "The Nguyens." The wedding was beautiful. It was just a time to be in front of those closest to us and actually come together as a family.  A time to celebrate being together. On the day of our wedding while I was getting my hair and… Continue reading Becoming The Nguyens


Fight, Fight, Fight!

Life is good.  We count our blessings and are thankful. One minute things seem great.  The next minute - that 60 seconds or less - creates so much devastation that your world just crumbles.  You crumble.  Everything around you has shattered.  Your hope, optimism, clarity, and your sanity.  The only thing left is a shell.… Continue reading Fight, Fight, Fight!


The Hiatus

Wow. It's been a long time since I've blogged. I would say I was basking in the ambiance of newlywed bliss, but in actuality I was just super busy, super tired, and super lazy.  Every day I would get ready to blog and every day something else would come up.  It seemed like every time… Continue reading The Hiatus

It’s Getting Close

Dun, Dun, Dunnnnnnn!! This wedding is like 2 weeks away.  Holy Crap! Just about everything is ready and put into place.  I still have a few details to take care of, but hey, my motto has been: "I have time."  I'm pretty sure I can use that line until the day of the wedding. Even… Continue reading It’s Getting Close
