remy is two

Remy is officially two years old today. Where did the time go? I have so much to say about my little goose, and yet, I can’t quite sum it all up!

So, I created a video that shows the previous twelve months of her life, and all of the fun we had.

You can also relive her eleven month photos that were taken on the same bed, one year ago.

I want to bottle up her sweetness and love for the outdoors and keep it forever. Happy birthday, darling.

xoxo

this time last year

Hey everyone! My not-so-little girl will be celebrating her second birthday in just a few days. I intend on having a post dedicated to her then. In the meantime, I recently had a look back at the photographs from her first birthday. What a whirlwind. It was certainly my favourite party that I’ve ever thrown and attended (probably because the guest of honour and occasion was so special). ;-)))

Here are some additional pictures that I didn’t publish, but love dearly.

See you in a few days!

“If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there.” Psalm 34:18

This is an incredibly hard post to write and publish. Today was the day that we were going to reveal my pregnancy to friends and followers. I would have been nearly 18 weeks pregnant. The wait for this announcement was a full month and a half longer than in my first pregnancy. I guess I wanted to relish in only us knowing, and also because I didn’t really “feel” pregnant. My symptoms weren’t nearly as strong with this baby as they were with Remy. On top of that, I had two bad ultrasounds, multiple blood tests with poor results, and bleeding. All of which led to our baby eventually dying. I have to stay positive and believe that it happened for a reason. I also have hope that God will bless us with a third and healthy child that I will be able to carry to term. If I don’t trust in these things, the pain is too much to bear.

Here are two additional quotes that have brought me some comfort.

Do you have quotes or passages that you turn to for solace?

To my sweet Rowen, I’ll always love you.

simple valentine’s day trifles

Makes 2 servings

This is an extremely quick and easy treat to make for that special someone on Valentine’s Day. It is a dessert that won’t break the bank, nor will it cut into your already precious time. Place in champagne flutes for a special touch. It is impossible to mess up this recipe, and it is certified to be paid back in even sweeter kisses.

Simple Valentine’s Day Trifles

Ingredients:

¾ cups raspberries, fresh
½ cups Oreos, broken
Whipped cream

Steps:

1. Start by measuring the ingredients. You will need approximately five Oreos to amount to ½ cup of crushed cookies. Once the raspberries and cookies have been prepared, set aside.

2. Using the champagne flutes, fill each one with ¼ of the crushed Oreos. Place ¼ of the raspberries on top. Then add whipped cream. This should take you to the halfway point in the flute. Repeat once more. Then top with leftover crushed Oreos, and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
