Lately

It's finally Friday and just in the nick of time. This week was weird, our schedule was off, and I'm so ready for a weekend with my people.

If you follow on snapchat (willowcrowns), you may have seen my snap about our second pregnancy loss. A few days after publishing this post, I found out I was pregnant and about a week later we unfortunately miscarried. We've decided to start fertility treatments to help us hopefully stay pregnant next time and are really trying to focus on the positives life has to offer, because there are so many! It's been hard to let go of the reigns and let specialists set our timetable (control freak, party of one) but there's definitely some relief in letting someone else steer the ship for a while. I had surgery on Monday and now that that's behind us, I'm anxious to get back to normal as much as we can.

So here's a look at all the things that are making me smile lately!


New decor for our master bedroom from Hobby Lobby.


Cake decorating with my little love.


Sunset walks and feeding the turtles.


A super thoughtful gift from Ashley and quality time in the studio. 


Flowers (and a visit!) from my mom.


Coffee dates with my favorite people.


Macarons from Sweet .


Flowers from Meredith during our lunch at Brio. 

We've spent so much time with our friends and loved ones lately, went to our first Southern crawfish boil,  have been enjoying date nights, family time, and we've got a few fun projects on deck for around the house!  I hope you've all got fun weekend plans that include a monster sized cup of coffee!

  2. I really admire your positivity, I can't imagine how hard the last few months have been. Like you, my sister had a normal first pregnancy and healthy child and then went on to have 2 miscarriages. She THEN went on to have a successful pregnancy and another healthy baby. I know everyone is different but I just wanted to reach out and let you know you are not alone. Sending lots of good thoughts and prayers your way!

  5. I am so sorry for you guys. We struggled for a year to get pregnant (with the help of fertility doc) and then had a miscarriage and it broke me. I struggled so hard to pick up the pieces and when I did get pregnant again I lived in such fear of losing it. I am truly in awe of you positive spirit and attitude. It's awesome. Will be thinking of you guys!

  7. I teared up when I saw your snapchat. I've had 2 miscarriages in the past several months too, one at almost 12 weeks and one at just over 5. We're waiting to get some tests done in a couple weeks. If you feel open to sharing what kind of treatment you're pursuing, I would love to know. If you don't feel comfortable with sharing, I absolutely understand that too.

  9. So sorry for your loss. Hugs! I've never suffered miscarriages but went through a long struggle with infertility before finally getting pregnant with the help of a specialist. I know it can feel like a long, exhausting, and all consuming road, but hang in there! Stay positive and focus on things you can control. Spend time with those you love and keep yourself busy. You'll be holding a sweet little one in your arms before you know it!

  10. I'm so sorry for your losses & I thank you so much for putting this out there. Talking about miscarriage has been taboo for entirely too long and too many women have suffered silently through it. I wish you peace through this process and a happy outcome at the finish line.

  11. So sorry for your losses. I lost my second pregnancy a month ago after going through fertility treatments. It's all so hard. You have such a great outlook on everything though, stay strong!

  15. So sorry for your loss! I too have had multiple miscarriages ....I don't have a problem conceiving but sustaining the pregnancy. I have been told to limit caffeine intake. I know you are a coffee lover as am I. I have given up the idea of carrying a child to term at this point...approaching 40, but you are younger than I am and hopefully with the help of a specialist it will be a reality. Hang in there! You are not alone in the pain or struggle!
