I’ve had a rough morning, for reasons I can’t share. Some things are not my stories to tell. But when the morning went south, I reached out to a blog friend who I knew would understand. She said all of the things I needed to hear. She said all of the things that Hottie couldn’t to make me feel better. She was the best friend I could have asked for in that moment, and I am eternally grateful. Her words truly dried my tears.
Thank you, my dear URL and IRL friend. You know who you are! ❤
Anyone who says our blogging connections are shallow or “not real” has never had a connection like the ones I have!
Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do.
I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

Sending you my love.
I have to say, like you, I have a few of these extra special connections too and I am thankful every single day for these friendships. We may have met online, but our friendship is so much more then that. Speaking of which, I really add you to my email friends. What’s your email? 🙂
