Another PAL Perspective

There is no denying that I have been nothing short of a walking pharmacy for the last few years. In the last few months (maybe since June?) I have saved up all my needles and syringes (and a few of the med vials) in order to share another unique perspective on my PAL journey. If […]

Pregnant with a Rainbow, Part VIII

My PAL Body At eighteen weeks with Sweet Teen, I pulled out my maternity clothes.

Pregnant with a Rainbow, Part VII

To give you a smaller, easier-to-get-through glimpse into my second PAL ultrasound with Sweet Teen last spring, here is a lens I call Second Glance. ~…~…~…~ Second Glance I am just as nervous as last time, my bladder isn’t quite as filled.
