Happy birthday, honey💘 You’re the best* person I’ve ever known. *kindest, most gentle, hard working, intelligent, wise, gracious, playful, handsome, generous, & present.
I want to be like you when I grow up & I know all our kids feel the same way. Love you forever.
#thisis38 ...🎂 Thank you all for the warm wishes, messages, comments, calls, greeting cards, thoughtful gifts, delicious baked goods, and time spent between Pittsburgh and Meadville this weekend ushering in my thirty-eighth year. I’m undeserving.

Today I celebrate this little girl. I have #pcos and was told I would never have another child without medical intervention, after my firstborn. .
I sought doctor after doctor and ended up seeing a reproductive endocrinologist at @umichmedicine , just as I was about to go to my appointment to begin clomid, I didn't feel "right". Prepared to be let down yet another time, I took a pregnancy test.
And I'll be damned. It was POSITIVE! I had a little extra monitoring to make sure she was a "sticky" baby my first trimester.
She was nice and socked in there and continued to grow. I felt the best I had in years.
At 33 weeks, we closed on our first house. I spent the day at work, and the nights working on our new home.
Then at 35 weeks, the day of a major event at work, I woke up feeling like I had a knife wedged between my shoulder blades. I knew something was wrong.
Having worked in medicine for a bit, I started to go through the things I could test that could be causing my pain. I started with blood pressure. It was 218/126. Normal is 120/80.
I called my doctor to let her know and was told to get to labor and delivery immediately. I had to find someone to watch my firstborn, my husband was at work, and then I drove to the hospital.
I got there, and was started on medicine. Had my blood drawn, and about 40 minutes later, was told I had preeclampsia and would be having a baby within the half hour. Alone.
By some miracle, more emergent patients had come in, my husband made it to the hospital from work, and so did the rest of my family.
My little girl was born at 5:30pm and despite being only 35 weeks gestation, and needing NICU care-just in case, was as healthy and as strong as they come.
There is hope for pregnancy with PCOS. There is hope for a healthy baby with PCOS. Don't give up on your dreams of motherhood, it might just happen when you least expect it. Baby dust to all women who desperately dream of being mamas!

We've been squirreling away at a special little piece to gift our mamma for her birthday present, and last night we presented it to her! Safe to say there was lots of tears and hugs ✨💕 Made from one piece Silky Oak body/neck, Bunya pine top, leopard wood fingerboard and blackwood headstock vaneer featuring hand painted frangipani flowers (her favs) to finish it off! One special piece for a special lady.
Happy birthday to our beautiful, caring, happy, smart big 6 year old. He loves Woody, Star Wars, Spiderman, Spaghetti Bolognaise and Cuddles with Mummy in the morning's with a Milo.
My 31st birthday year can be summarised by two words, growth and gratitude.
I’ve learned that happiness is simple and easily achievable, it’s about shifting what you require to make you happy.
I’ve learned to speak up and put myself first in my relationships rather than take a backseat only to serve the needs of others. Those who didn’t appreciate this new found assertiveness, left and those who shouted, “Finally! I’m so proud of you.” stayed. It’s incredible to see who grows with you and who you grow out of as you progress.
The gratitude came from what and who was left in my life and realising I had all that I ever needed. I’ve got incredible friends who are more like North Stars. They are my moral compasses, deep thinkers and big feelers. Being single after a tough breakup taught me the true value of girlfriends. They are your chosen family - they pick you up time and time again. These are my cheerleaders, my midnight therapists and my tequila table dancers, who are too unique for generic adjectives. I hope you know who you are and the rainbow magic you give my life. I can only hope I gift my friends the same love and energy. As I began seriously dating Jordi I never forgot that these girlfriends serve a higher purpose, they’re not my time fillers until I find The One, they’re my life partners too.
Finally my relationship. I’m marrying my best friend. You are the kind of man and the kind of love worth building a future around. You’re also pretty damn handsome and make me swoon at least once a day at the sight of you. Keep staring deep into the kitchen pantry for some snacks, keep singing along to anything Disney out of tune and keep grabbing my butt as I run up the stairs - it makes this old lady feel like she’s still got it.
So with that, happy 32nd birthday to me. My heart is full.

There is no place I’d rather be in life than wrapped up tight in your arms. The same arms that make puppies and babies fall asleep, always make me me feel safe and loved. I have no words for how grateful I am to have a husband like you, so hugs and kisses will have to convey it for me. Happy Birthday to my very own Teddy B! Te amo.🐻💋 @becausebrandon

On my actual birthday, my mama & I went on a Jeep safari tour. I know this post looks all calm & peaceful. Trust me, it was not. This is just footage from the BEGINNING of the tour. I didn’t do a great job capturing the wildest parts of the ride because I was honestly too busy screaming and trying to keep myself inside the damn jeep the whole time. We Indiana Jones’d it all throughout the island. A few of us even witnessed a truck turned upside down a few miles away from us, and I was sure that would be our fate. It was like the driver purposely took thee most rugged, unstable, and unsafe routes to get EVERYWHERE 🤣 and don’t get me started on how much dirt, sand, and rain got in my mouth! Yes, it RAINED! The water slapped our faces and hurt like hail. Oh, and plot twist — we ain’t see no dang animals outside of stray goats & lizards. I shoulda known... Aruba’s too small for somethin like that. I guess “safari” really meant “rough, rugged, and ridiculous” cuz that’s what we really got! Musta been in the fine print somewhere. Plus my mama & I already visited the sites we toured again on this excursion, so we were only in it for the adventure anyway. No complaints here tho... we had a hilariously memorable time. Lmao. 🎊👏🏾 WHERE TO NEXT?
