"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

I'm Back!!

Hello Everyone!! I know I've been gone for a long long time, but hopefully I'm back for good. This past year was a rough one, and I needed some time to collect myself.

In April, I suffered a miscarriage which was completely devestating.  We have such a hard time getting pregnant, and then to be so close was heartbreaking.  I pushed myself into different things to distract myself and found myself constantly working in the garden, spray painting stuff for the house, and cleaning.  I even got the basement cleaned and finally put together and now we have a family room and play room down there.  It was pretty productive summer. 

In August, I again miscarried.  This was the second of the year, and my third overall, and I was beginning to think we'd never be able to have anymore children.  Then, surprise, I found out in October I was pregnant again, and I'm due June 8th.  I went to the Dr. on Friday and everything is looking great, and besides some horrendous morning sickness, this has been a pretty low key pregnancy.  I'm currently 16 weeks and holding strong!  We're thrilled, and I am so looking forward to giving Anthony a little brother or sister.  We find out February 1st what we're having, but in all honesty,  all I want is a healthy little baby.  I'd be just as happy with a little boy, as I would a little girl.

I'm really looking forward to getting back to reviewing what I've read, and tracking all my reading adventures.  I've missed the blogging world, but I'm also glad I took the break.  With everything else, it just wasn't fun anymore and I felt like it was something I "had" to do rather than something I wanted to do.

I'm going to sign up for some reading challenges this year, probably way too many, and enjoy some reading this year!!
