i’d love to hear from you. Contact me using the form below.
In 2010, our perfect *”Baby Gavin” returned to Heaven after losing a courageous battle with **Pertussis (whooping cough). We are eternally and profoundly grateful to the thousands upon thousands (upon thousands) of friends and strangers from all over the world, of all faiths and creeds, who united with our family in prayer during Baby Gavin’s horrific illness and who grieved with us and continued to petition God in our behalf during the dark days following his tragic death. You may read Gavin’s story as it unfolded by visiting my old blog here. I am committed to sharing my ongoing struggles with grief and our journey toward joy here on the new blog. I am always humbled and amazed by the continued outpouring of love and support. Thank you for sharing in our journey and inspiring us with your unceasing love! God is good!
*My brother Gavin passed away unexpectedly in 2007. With all these Angel Gavins, it can get a little confusing at times, so just know that when I refer to “Gavin” I’m referring to my wonderful brother. When I refer to “Baby Gavin,” it is in reference to my perfect son, both of whom I cannot wait to see in Heaven!
**You will periodically see me blog about The Sounds of Pertussis campaign. I am an unpaid spokesperson and am only compensated travel expenses where applicable for my involvement with this important cause.

Meet Alden. He is cool. Really cool.
Meet Ashley. She is cooler. A lot cooler. (Sorry Alden).
Ashely is my wonderful, “can do” assistant! I met Ashley at her engagement session back in April . . . hired her about a week later. . . and the rest is history. Enjoy their fun Haleiwa Engagement Session! xx, N
today I am not blogging.
because I just don’t feel like it.
and given the circumstances that are my life currently, I think it’s perfectly acceptable for me to choose not to do something simply because I don’t wanna.
so, tonight I am saying NO to my blog, and YES to a pint of ice cream and a movie with my man.
ps. tay tay and I are planning a me and tay tay trip. to get as far away from our realities as we possibly can. (she lost half of her heart recently as well when she lost her precious Walt late term).
Where oh where should we go together?
We want to relax, to heal, to recharge. . . to ESCAPE (could be read “hide” we’re totally fine with using the words interchangeably).
We want to be prudent. . . like unless one of you has a villa to lend, we won’t likely be hopping off to the south of france. . . but hey, if you DO happen to have a villa to contribute to the cause, I’m not above your charity. ;)
pipe in. where should we go?! we’re looking at late october.
