Can someone please explain to me how it's already October 31st?? We've been busy living life and before we realized it, it's Halloween. I wish we had done costumes but some things you just have to let go. That was one of them. However, we were able to celebrate Cony's birthday! He had the coolest birthday this year. He turned 27 on the 27th of the 10th month of the 10th year. Did you get that? 27 on 10.27.10. I count my lucky stars everyday because I have Cony in my life. I can't imagine anyone else I'd want to spend my life journey with... it's such a wonderful, peaceful feeling to know that even when you get into little (or big) arguments he's going to stick by my side and can make a joke out of it 3 minutes later. Plus-he's easy on the eyes.

Clearly, I'm not much of a writer. Part of the many reasons we keep a blog is so I can practice my writing skills, both grammatically and articulately. I've failed to mention a few things. Our last post was a little bare on the description of items and projects. The table, chairs and bench all came from the sweet family I help. They have a collection of things and one day we went 'shopping' in their house and yard. Which turned out to be a sweet reward because I had found a beautiful table and chairs set on craigslist we were going to buy but didn't have a way to pick up, so we had to let them go. All we had to pay for was some spray paint. Hello bargain!

Fall is in full swing and it's been 34 degrees in the morning. But in the afternoon it's bright blue skies with very little clouds and it's stunning.

Some prayers were answered this week and I'm feeling very grateful and very hopeful. First I want to say how sincerely grateful and loved we feel for all the emails we received in regards to our struggle with infertility. Your love and openness has humbled us and we thank you!

After refinishing the dresser that the TV is on, I thought the dressers in our room would be a breeze. I was highly mistaken. I couldn't sand down to the actual wood, but I was able to put a fresh coat of stain over what I had done and they managed to come out better than they were before. But will have to re-do them again eventually.

This particular post is difficult to write. However, through much thought and prayer I feel the need to write about our journey with infertility. I'm afraid no matter how I write this, my intentions are going to be misunderstood. In no way, shape or form am I writing this as a "Woo is me!". There are many women who have a more serious problem with this than I. can. ever. imagine, but I also know there are many women out there suffering silently and feel utterly alone. And also feel ashamed. I recognize that this is opening a can of worms, but it's a risk we are willing to take.

While it's fresh on my memory I want to recap my week vacation with Charity. While we enjoyed the New England autumn weather by antiquing and cooking, we also had the opportunity to visit Palmyra, New York. It was beautiful, uplifting and all inspiring in so many ways. I feel like it was such a powerful experience words can not properly articulate how I feel or what I saw. An experience that happens few and far between...
