I was born on a small holding in the middle 80's (because what woman wants to give away her age). You know, the time with no technology keeping children from being children, the time when family was a much more respected thing and prepared and packaged meals were unthinkable with mom’s homemade cooking filling the house with the most amazing smells.
With a family as BIG as mine weekends, birthdays and special events were more than great experiences. Cousins running around playing till after dark while my father plays the guitar till his fingers bled is something I still remember as though it was yesterday.
I have this passion for living, to be happy, to make others feel special. I love treating people close to heart and most of all being not just the best example for Gabi but be an awesome mom, that she may have the same feelings that I have when she looks back on her childhood one day. To feel that happiness and love in her life and to one day look out the window and be amazed by the mountains and everything Mother Nature has to offer.
Like I said earlier, life was not always easy, as much happiness there was also a degree of darkness, fear, tears and unhappiness. One moment that stands out was my struggle with polycystic ovary syndrome.
After undergoing a ovarian cystectomy and on top of that a Cone biopsy I was told that my chance to have children of my own is basically zero. 20 years old at the time and still so young, I took the news like any women will, not well. I love children so much and the thought that I will never have any of my own made me feel heartbroken, useless and empty.
I wanted to share my story, my life as a mother, sharing bullet proof advice to other new mothers because I know that they need as much information and support as possible, the same way I did. Most of all, I wanted to do something special for Gabi to look back on one day, capturing our life together and giving her a Glimpse of how much I really do love her
