Good luck charms

We are spending this weekend doing a few things: 1. Watching these adorable babes, the bug and the bee, while their parents have an anniversary get away. 2. Inseminating for our fifth cycle I'm hoping that my two favorite babies will give us some extra good baby luck. I like to think that the bug... Continue Reading →


Dear All of You

I just got a big squishy feeling in my heart for all the really rad folks out there who follow my blog and those whose blogs I follow (a largely overlapping but not 100% the same list.) This shit is hard, and I'm really glad I have all of you - even though we don't... Continue Reading →

And now that I... Continue Reading →

Not the post I wanted to write

Ugh. I have really been wanting to post my experience from last Tuesday/Wednesday, when La and I went and got civil union #42 in the state of Colorado.
