One Year Ago Today

All weekend long, my husband & I reminisced. Because the first Saturday in Oct 2011 {after I wrote about being more brave & more scared than ever before}, something{s} special happened.

Exactly 365 days ago today {around 8a actually}, I had an IUI done. It rocked our world. And it took me ten days to gather & share my thoughts on it. And then six more days before I POAS & learned that cycle 23 of our TTC struggle was a success. And I could only keep my positive pregnancy results a secret from y’all for eight days. October will always hold a sweet place in my heart.

What a difference a year makes. Today, tonight, I will hold my babies tight. My one-year-ago-self never imagined, couldn’t fathom this joy.
