  • Filling the Christmas Stocking

    December 25, 2019 by

    The stockings were hung by the chimney with care. But what to fill with the one who is not here? The lonely stocking meant to be filled with excitement and childhood wonder.

  • Who I am

    August 14, 2019 by

    I’m Sara, and as long as I could remember I have thought about the excitement of becoming a mama. Taking this journey has made my heart swell. July 26, 2016 this little guy was born and forever changed everything. I am more grateful than anything that I get to share his 14.5 hours of life… Read more

  • Another Countdown from another year without you

    December 30, 2018 by

    The nights feel short in anticipation of the countdown coming. Bells will ring and celebrations that another new start is coming with the new year. For just a moment I’m pausing for my year of remembrance. My time to think about being further from your time on Earth.

  • God is in the Details

    October 29, 2018 by

    About 6 months after Logan died I met another loss mama a couple years further in her journey. She told me to keep looking for God in the details. She told me you probably can’t see it now, but there will come a time when you’ll see where God is in the details again. When… Read more

  • The Difference of a Year

    July 6, 2018 by

    What a difference 1 year in your life can make. I was thinking back to last year, remembering the depths of the valley. It was approaching the first anniversary of Logan’s birth and death. A milestone where I should be arranging cute Pinterest worthy party and photos of him smashing a cake. Instead I was… Read more

  • Stepping Into The Great Unknown

    April 23, 2017 by

    The power of scent for memory recall has continued to amaze me. I have learned so much more from this and am taking steps to no longer sit aside as uneducated to what I am placing on and in my body. I am doing more of my own research and finding more sources. I know I am not alone, I am the 1 in 4 (miscarriage) and 1 in 160 (stillbirth) who have known infant loss.

  • A long overdue thank you

    March 10, 2017 by

    I had every intention of writing this thank you months ago, but going back to the hospital in my mind is a place I can’t go often. It’s something I carefully have trained my mind to avoid to stay functional. In order to properly say this I needed to: I know that you did not… Read more

  • Another October

    October 1, 2020 by

    October is part of my favorite and also gut punches when I see it coming on the calendar. The thought of resting time coming, sweatshirts, leaves and the crispness it fills me with just joy. And then I also know, yup it’s coming again. This is the month my feed gets filled with all my… Read more

  • How Can I Help?

    February 7, 2020 by

    Recently I’ve watched a friend walk through some deep waters. I’ve seen the posts on Facebook posting updates on the situation and each day I see the “How can I help”. Here’s the thing the person going through whatever grief and struggle you are asking for is the last person who needs one more thing… Read more

  • Doing Life With Less

    January 22, 2020 by

    Even though I thought that we had been careful with our budget and that our Christmas bonus would have easily paid off any other end of year expenses. When the month was over and I really analyzed what we’d spent I’d realized that our bonus was gone, but looking around we couldn’t really pin point on what it had gone on.
