Change

       

Rivers have always fascinated me. As I stood in the water, feeling the current gently push me. 

I take change a lot like a river, despite hardship; I just keep going. I guess that is the free spirit in me. I see change as one big adventure. I may write lyrics to describe where my heart is, may pick a new hobby. Change happens. There is nothing you can do about it. Sometimes it requires you to get out of your comfort zone. I believe that God gives us change to help us become more like Him. 

Change is not always meant to be easy. But even the worst of changes, shapes who you are.

Full of Wanderlust 

  It has been awhile since my last post. Sorry about that. I hate those moments where I feel like I don’t have anything to say. I have felt like I have been in a blogger funk. I have some fun trips coming up, so I can share with you. 

I love adventure. I love traveling  to new places and revisiting old familiar places. 

In July we are going to Williamsburg, VA! 

   
   

I love going to Williamsburg and I can not wait to go back. I am going try and take as many pictures as possible! I have been practicing some patience in waiting for my camera to focus before snapping the picture! So I am excited to see if I get some good shots! 

However before I go to Williamsburg, I am going to the beach. And you can bet there will be pictures! 

Then after Williamsburg in July; in September, I am going to West Virginia to visit my Aunt. I went last year and I loved it. I loved being up in the mountains and spending time with my family. 

  
And the mountains are gorgeous to photograph, even if you have no idea what your doing. 

So while I am waiting for these fun trips to happen, I have been enjoying bonfires at my grandparents.

  
And taking walks on some of the trails.

P.S. I do have some fun posts coming up soon! 

My Week In Pictures

So typically I like to do these posts for my weekend but this week I actually took more pictures then what I probably will this weekend! 

  Colin and I did a fire to kickoff our anniversary weekend last Saturday ( I think). It took awhile to get it going but it was worth it! 

  
  The night before our anniversary we saw Phil Wickham! It was a wonderful time of worship.
  
  Monday ( June 1st!) was our two year wedding anniversary! We took a day trip to Gettysburg! We had so much fun and enjoyed just being together. 
   
    Took pictures at my parents house.

•hope you all had a great week!•

Oh Baby!

Well after many thoughts and praying, I am going to start sharing about my TTC journey. I have shared bits and pieces once a month or so. However, I am in a place where I feel like opening the bolted door and spreading out the welcome mat for those who may be going through the same frustrations and heartbreak as I am. Whether you are diagnosed with infertility or your just going through infertility without having anything really wrong with you and your just having problems conceiving. It is a journey that no one wants to go on. Yet for some of us, we are here. We don’t want to be, but we are.

I decided to share my heart with you, because I want to have a chance to turn this season, this journey into something other then me crying over a negative test result. Don’t get me wrong I hate negative pregnancy tests. It is frustrating. So while I don’t want my entire blog to focus on this journey, I still want to at least share my heart openly and freely.

This month, I felt like it started out pretty good. I have been working on being healthy, and ready for summer. I also tried to put the idea of TTC in the back of my mind, and try without trying if that makes sense. Which also means I sucked at really paying attention to when I may have ovulated. Lovely….I am also late. I took a test this morning and it was negative. I expected it to be, so I wasn’t as shocked. So I am still waiting to see if I get a period in the next few days. I have been having symptoms that are PMS related. At the same time, I think I may have ovulated later then what the app suggested. Just because I have been at least checking my cervical mucus ( sorry for TMI!) and so while I am waiting the next couple of days to see if my period shows up, I am also thinking I need to give myself so more time. Simply because I am not 100% sure. Bad month to throw caution to the wind. I have switched apps for this cycle and so far I am loving it. I will do a post on that later.

I am kind of on the fence on how I really feel. The waiting is the worst. Waiting to see if my mucus charting was right, and waiting to see if AF comes. Nerve racking!

I will post what happens as soon as I know!

Praying for Baby Dust your way,

Brandy
