Hydranencephaly. Seeing this word now doesn’t scare me like it did the first time I saw it, when the doctors were telling me this was my son’s diagnosis. Hydranencephaly doesn’t scare me now because it’s something we have conquered, something we own, something we faced head on and live through every day. I was shocked, confused, scared and had no idea what my life would be once I left the hospital with him. I’m sharing him today, getting a little more personal than I have in previous posts. Having a child with special needs is something most people don’t fully understand, but I am a mom just like every other mom and I just wish people would see past his diagnosis and just see him as a 9 year old little boy 🙂

this smile is everything!

We need to talk about 2 things today. Families and cottages. Two things near and dear to my heart 🙂 This past June we bought a cottage as a family, and we are already making so many memories there. Also, it’s in Michigan, so it doesn’t really get any better! I have to take time to count my blessings, and this cottage is a huge one.

Hey all! Now that summer is coming to an end, and we won’t be outside as much (unless you’re like me, and love to do all things fall outside), I am looking towards indoor home projects. Finding the perfect rustic mirror for both our bathroom and over our living room sofa are at the top of my list! Check out a couple of my picks below!

Man. I really gotta learn how to post regularly! I get to the point where I feel so busy that blogging is the LAST thing on my mind. It definitely is a balancing act that I have not yet mastered.  I am constantly trying to remind myself that this is what I want to do and I need to figure out how blogging works with my life. But alas, in the midst of figuring….I managed to snap a few pics of some outfits I plan on rocking over our coveted summer months here in Michigan!
