What you need to know for when life doesn’t go as planned

A few weeks ago we ordered brand spankin’ new convection double wall ovens – yay!

The end of 2009 was a really rough time for me. It was just before the holidays when I had had a miscarriage at 14 weeks. Even just typing this now brings tears to my eyes. I can still feel the heartbreak and devastation. I truly did not know how to keep going. This was…
