Weekend in LA – part 2

Look who I met in real life??  Devon & Erika

Blogger friends unite! :)


We had a great time visiting together!  We gabbed for hours like we were old friends.  We’ve actually “known” each other for almost 2 years now, but it was great to finally meet them.


We were trying to think back as to how we initially got connected in the blogger world, and we just couldn’t pinpoint it.  I did a search for my first blog comment or email from Devon and Erika to see if they mentioned how they found my blog.  At the end of Devon’s email she said:

ps...no idea how i found your blog! lol!

So I guess we’ll never really know; it’s just fate! 

I’m so glad I meet these great girls.  We share so much in common.  Its unfortunate the circumstances that brought us together, but lots of good things have definitely come out of this!

Until next time, girls!  April 2011 for my Baby Shower in Tampa, right??

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
