Happy Birthday Marielle Quinn!

It's amazing to think that it's been seven years since I sat and stared and stared and stared at a beautiful six pound 8 ounce baby girl. She was so tiny and perfect. I remember thinking it felt like my heart was no longer inside my body but on the outside, fully exposed and vulnerable.

The love was so huge and overwhelming and just continues to change and grow stronger and deeper.

Motherhood is an incredibly rich and challenging and beautiful experience. I'm so grateful to be along on this wild ride with two beautiful, healthy little girls.

  1. Beautiful woman! Beautiful women! Funny thing that the we can feel that way and forget that our hearts are actually protected by our love.


What are you thinking/feeling? I'd really love to know...
