Healing Vibes/Kure Beach

After my mom found out about our miscarriage she insisted that she come visit. While my husband probably could have lived without week long visitors it was such a good experience for me and Teddy. She even brought along my grandma! On their last full day in North Carolina we decided to take a day… Continue reading Healing Vibes/Kure Beach

Hello from the Dirty South

My husband was offered an exciting new job opportunity in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area last month.
