Back Pain is a B*tch

I won’t sugar coat it, it’s been a very tough month around here.  It all began for no reason, no specific event can be pinpointed.  I just woke up with lower back pain.  No explanation.  It started as a dull ache, maybe I just slept wrong?  I massaged it with this strange back massager, rested…

Hyperemesis Gravidarum – When Pregnancy is a Nightmare

A positive pregnancy test was all I wanted for the two years that we tried to conceive.  Those two years were tough – lots of tears, testing, disappointment, fertility meds, and flat out pleading with the Lord to provide.  Of course with that being 12 years behind us now, I feel so far removed from…

The Perfect Cup

I know, I know, another coffee post.  I told you I am obsessed!  But I have a confession….I used to drink “coffee” that came out of a little plastic cup (no need to mention names, but you know!).  After switching to real coffee (whole beans that I grind daily), my world has changed.  Coffee never…
