24 Weeks Pregnant and So Much Love

Love is in the air as we kicked off week 24 by celebrating our eighth Valentine’s Day together. Joe cleaned out our attic this week and found a box of all the cards I have given him including the first Valentine’s Day card I gave him in college. I don’t know if it is the hormones or what but I cried (with happiness) reading all the messages and cards we have exchanged over the years. 24 weeks pregnant Read more

A Special Valentine’s Day Random Act of Kindness

“I don’t know any of your names but I all know your faces”

How many people do we cross paths with each week at work, the grocery store or in the case I am about to share the gym? Sometimes you may exchange a casual smile or a friendly glance  and others times you may just go about your business. On Monday, a man who has been in my Zumba class for the past year reminded me how a simple gesture to the ones around us, even nameless strangers, can make a big impact.

5 Years with the Fur Baby

Today we are celebrating Rory’s 5 year adoption anniversary from Feeding the Forgotten! I still cant’t believe how tiny he was when we got him (picture below). Feeding the Forgotten, based out of Parsippany, NJ, does a fantastic job of rescuing, fostering and socializing homeless kittens.


As I have mentioned in the past adopting Rory was one of the best decisions we have ever made. He brings us so much happiness and joy and we couldn’t imagine our life without him. Although this was a tough year for him we can now look forward to having him as part of our family for a very long time.

22 Weeks Pregnant and Possibly a Name!

773fac31938589d761de9634b476cd6c22 weeks pregnant and according to the internet (and this chart from Primer Magazine) I am starting my sixth month of pregnancy but according to everything I have learned about math in my life that doesn’t make sense so I will continue to go by weeks to not confuse myself or others 🙂

Regardless of what month I am in I can say that the second trimester continues to be amazing. I feel so good and each day we are overjoyed with anticipation waiting for our guy to get here.
