One year ago today…

One year ago today.

Our lives changed in a way that I was terrified for.

When my husband decided at 6 months pregnant to leave me and our kids, I thought I was going to die. I didn’t know if I could do life without him. And I was terrified to give birth alone.

Turns out, the universe always has your back. What I didn’t realize at the time, was that this was the best thing for us. My two daughters helped me through labor and brought their brother earthside with me and it was the most powerful and life altering day of my life.

One year ago today, Monet (my birth videographer) captured a transition in my life and I will forever be grateful for her talents in doing so. At times, she also set her camera down and was with me in the moment…to encourage me, woman to woman, that I was strong, that I was powerful, that I could do this.

Happy birthday to my little guy and thank you Monet for giving me this priceless video so that I can always look back on the most transitional day of my life…the day I was healed from all the hurt and anguish, the day my little guy saved us all. ❤️

After the loss of our first pregnancy, we took a much needed vacation to Costa Rica to enjoy each other and clear our minds. Well, as luck would have it, we brought home much more than great memories and great tans...our own little Costa Rican souvenir. Here is our journey!
