According to my midwife, I’ve had a “boring” pregnancy. She meant it as a compliment… I’ve been pretty low maintenance for her over the last 8 months or so. Even given that midwives as providers tend to take on the low risk and easier pregnancies, I’ve been a breeze for her. I told her “you’re […]
Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life! This past weekend with Good Friday as a statutory holiday meant that I got to spend three whole days with my husband. And it was wonderful!
Part of my reading challenge this year required that I read a book my mom loves. I liked this category, as it took the book selection completely out of my hands. I waited a long time for my mom to make her choice, and when she finally did, she handed me a 1,000 page tome. […]

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life! I am extremely grateful today, as today marks the first of many Mondays where I don’t have to go to work! As of Friday last week, I am officially off work due to pregnancy! My maternity leave will […]
As part of my reading challenge, I had to read a book I should have read in high school. Initially I had no idea what I’d read to fulfill this requirement, and then a friend of mine asked if I’d read The Giver. Apparently, she read it in high school and was surprised that many […]
Because I’m feeling all sorts of feels lately, I find my emotions best summed up in verse! Enjoy!
