My Family

I met my husband while we were both in college in early 2014. It was love at first sight, and we were engaged by the end of the year. We got married and began our trying to conceive journey in July of 2015.  Our family now includes me, Mr. Man (my husband), Elliot and Slippers (our two cats), Harley (our puppy), three babies in heaven, and our rainbow Easton James.

Our hearts (and house!) are quite full and we wouldn’t have it any other way.


I grew up in a small town in Alabama. After starting college in 2013, I tried a truly impressive assortment of majors and potential careers and nothing ever clicked. I’m currently living the (my) dream of being a stay at home mom. I also take online classes full-time. In my spare time (aka the time I should probably be doing something else) reading, excessively pinning ideas for projects I’ll never get around to, and watching YouTube videos.

The Fun Part

How about... "Obviously you've never tried to get pregnant after giving birth to a dead baby while dealing with secondary unexplained infertility.":

I started The Fun Part in January of 2016 as a class project. Almost instantly, I fell in love with writing in a way that I hadn’t for years. What began as a way to chronicle the journey to our take-home baby has grown into so much more.
