I started this blog several years ago so that Marc and I could remember what the heck we did in our lives. We don't remember things very well, so hopefully we can look back at this blog each year to remind us. In the earlier blog days, I mostly posted about what we did on the weekends, different hobbies, and just fun things. These days I have started keeping up with our infertility journey that we are currently on. This blog is a great outlet for me and a great support system. I'm thankful to be able to share our story with others and maybe help someone along the way.
Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to email me anytime at: mlyount12 {at} yahoo dot com.
