Pate for My Tired Pregnant Butt

This pregnancy has been nothing like my first pregnancy. The first time around I was nauseous for most of the first trimester.

On Turning 40

I love birthdays and not just mine. I love all birthdays. It’s that one day made just for you. I love baking cakes illuminated with a copious amount of candles for friends and family. I love blowing out my own candles and making some youthful wish, like a 9-year-old, and believing it will come true. […]
