timing - Trust God's timing in my life
Wow, it has been a while. Let's just say life got in the way and it's taken me some time to find my way back to writing, to finding my happiness, to finding the positive in life. I know this is a lifestyle blog, usually filled with posts about outfits I've put together, trips Kyle and I have taken and things that just make me smile, like our dog Wooden. I will definitely be getting back to that but if I don't put these feelings into words, the chapter will never be closed. We all have a dream of how we'd like our lives to play out, our perfect plan. Each one of us has a unique dream, ours and ours alone, a vision so perfect, one would call it flawless. I would definitely call myself a dreamer and I think anyone close to me would say the same. Since I was a little girl I've always had visions of how I'd like my life to play out, the dreams where grand at times, I definitely have doe eyes when it comes to life, to me anything is possible. As my life has progressed I noticed myself checking things off that I've always dreamed of, whether it be running marathons, traveling, starting my own little business, to finding the man of dreams and him asking me to marry him. It was all falling into place, the life that I dreamed of was coming true. They say when you get to comfortable with life that you better be careful because life will come and knock you down when you least expect it. Kyle finished up his season in Orléans, France playing some of the best basketball of his career, which led to him signing a two year deal back with Orléans. We were ecstatic, this gave us stability, something which is very rare in the land of professional sports. So we thought it was the perfect time to start a family. Such an exciting time in a couples life and to our luck we got pregnant right away, our baby would be due St. Patrick's Day 2015. The moment you take that pregnancy test and see that positive sign, your life changes forever. My dream was coming true, I was going to be a mom and Kyle was going to make the perfect dad. We'd have our baby in France, nerve racking yes because we'd be away from our family and friends but it was what was best for our plan. We headed back to France in early August, the team moved us into a beautiful new home which included a pink bedroom and a blue bedroom, I was all smiles knowing that one of these rooms would be our baby's nursery. My main focus now was to prepare to become a mom, I downloaded apps, purchased books, did everything an expectant mom would do. Then sadly all at once it was taken away. At our first visit with the French doctor, what we saw wasn't what you should see at eleven weeks, our baby, our dream had passed away. I look back now and don't know how I kept it together in that doctor's office, I just listened to the doctor who told us I needed emergency surgery the next morning. I was paralyzed, this had to be a nightmare, I was going to wake up, everything was going to be fine, we were going to be parents and have a healthy, happy baby. No one prepares you for the loss that is a miscarriage, and to make matters worse Kyle and I were by ourselves, away from home, away from family, in a foreign country. It's so crazy how such amazing joy can be taken away from you in just a second. I felt my life was over, I felt I had failed, I felt empty and to see my husband so sad killed me. Our spark, our light was taken from us. I cried, I was sad, I closed the doors of the pink room and the blue room, I couldn't bear to look into them knowing that one was supposed to be a nursery. Most of all I was angry, I felt selfish but we were good people, we wanted a baby so badly and it was taken from us. I was hesitant to write about this, because for some reason to talk about miscarrying is taboo in our society. But it is now part of my life and to keep emotions and events bottled up inside you is no way to live. Our baby wasn't an embryo, our baby had a heart, our baby was a baby and we lost it. It's a pain I wish no couple would ever have to experience. The thing I heard most after we miscarried was, "Everything happens for a reason and when the time is right you and Kyle will be parents." Well Kyle and I are already parents, parents who suffered the loss of a child, as are all the other couples who've miscarried. Before this happened to us, I was blind to all of this and would probably say the same thing to someone who miscarried but now I am aware that it is so much bigger, it's something that you'll carry with you forever. Kyle and I grieved but knew that we had to find the positive, what happened to us sucked, it hurt, it changed our lives and how we'd move forward was very important. I focused on getting healthy both mentally and physically. Also having to learn not to be afraid of the future, this has to be the hardest thing because that experience was terrifying, scaring my mind and heart and I told Kyle that I couldn't bear for us to go through that again. Kyle was my rock and assured me that no matter what we are going to have the family of our dreams, we just had to trust life. I know in time we will be ready to take that leap into parenthood again, that we will have our perfect little James Kelly or Madelyn Elle. I am learning now to just trust the timing of our lives, when it will happen, it will happen. You can't stop dreaming, you can't stop living, it is ok to start smiling again. Don't be afraid to let hope back in, for me it was opening the doors to that pink room and blue room, because maybe one day one will be a nursery for our James or Madelyn. Life is always going to test you, it's going to knock you on your ass more times than you'd like but you'll get up, you'll keep dreaming, you have to because what would your life be without ups and downs, without dreams, it would be boring. A perfect life is a messy one, it's getting lost on your way to a dream and realizing you found a whole new dream that is just as amazing. It's taken me weeks to find the courage to write these words, to share our story. This is my closure, this is that little baby that lived inside my belly for two and half months telling me that it's ok for Kyle and I to start dreaming of the future, of other babies. I am not overly religious but I do know that that little babe is with me every single day and has given me courage and strength to never give up even when life gets tough. xoxo

Pin a Clothespin. 'Pinching Earth' Sculpture by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal. Liege, Belgium.

Amazing installation art by Mehmet Ali Uysal. Original quote says: "Located in Belgium’s Park Chaudfontaine, artist Mehmet Ali Uysal’s installation uses a mundane low-tech icon as a statement of man’s dominion over nature. Thanks to our friends at STREET ART UTOPIA for the share."
Just a Pinch. This wonderful outdoor art sculpture by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal shows a giant clothespin pinching the grass. It was built for the Festival of the Five Seasons in Chaudfontaine Park, located on the outskirts of Liege, Belgium.
Call it a public art project, installation, or sculpture art, but this clothespin in Chaudfontaine, Liege, Belgium, somehow holding onto a dirt mound underneath grass. It was made for the Festival of the Five Season

Irena Sendler (Al Gore was presented the Nobel Peace Prize over this amazing woman?! The Norwegian Nobel Committee should be ashamed...)
An amazing story of a true hero. She was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, but Al Gore was selected??
Remember this lady? I didn't either - Originally posted on Diasp.org An amazing woman who saved over 2500 infants and children during WWII in the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland. She eventually was captured and tortured and miraculously got out when she was scheduled for execution! She missed getting the Nobel Peace Prize 'by that much' in 2007. The year that Al Gore received it. She died in 2008.
Irena Sendler - A true hero Al Gore won Nobel peace prize over her???? Makes me sick!
Remember this lady? Really, Al Gore won the nobel peace prize over this woman? Who was on that committee. Read this, it is truly amazing and inspiring what one person is willing to do and can do.

I just laughed so hard! Ingenious advertising campaign - Funny ads by Colgate to prove that food remaining on your teeth is really something to worry
Mind blown!!! Colgate came out with a set of visual ads, of photographs of couples with a man with food stuck in his teeth. On second glance however, you notice that in one image, one lady has too many fingers. In another, there's a phantom arm, disconnected from a body. In a third, there is a missing ear. The campaign was started to show that food stuck in your teeth is more distracting than physical defects.
Night after lonely night, Berfudly Pendleminor sat at home alone. Ever since he had insulted that fortune teller. Why had he done that? Now the awful rash she put on his hands with that curse made every woman he met turn her nose up and walk away. Maybe he should apologize. ...Carol
