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.

Hi all!
So this post is a little different than previous posts, but I feel it is a very necessary topic. I usually stick to Michigan travel, but with just recently getting back from an extended weekend in Las Vegas, I couldn’t resist sharing some useful tips I picked from my time in Sin City!

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!
