A lot has happened.
We successfully got pregnant via IUI. Thank you, UW!
We bought a big new house and started our renovation.
My beloved mama died suddenly, and I was tasked with handling her estate.
We traveled some more.
I was re-elected to the city council.
I decided to meet with a psychologist and a psychiatrist and made some big changes for my mental health.
I defended my thesis and graduated with my Master’s Degree in communication.
Our sweet little Teddy was born, and I was very sick for months. Then he was sick, and it took months for us to get a diagnosis. I was in a very dark place, both physically and emotionally, and I struggled to make it out.
This blog has always been a place where I shared the challenges and joys in my life, but I was unable to write through most of these things. I’m looking forward to getting back to it and telling some of these stories.
I am going to start by going back to my roots and sharing the adventure that is getting back to running. Through the course of the years of hormonal fertility treatments, pregnancy, and medication for postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety, I’m running races now almost 100 pounds heavier than when I ran my first marathon.
I have faith that as I train for my upcoming races and find a new balance between my family, my business, and my health, really wonderful things will happen.
Thanks for sticking with me through my writing hiatus, and I’m excited that you’re here for the new updates.
A new woman has emerged- a mama, a grieving daughter, and one tough cookie. I can’t promise this process will be glamorous, but you know that I’ll be real with you, as always. 😘
