| it's not forgetting that heals it's remembering |

the months after we lost our baby i wanted to simply forget. i thought that by forgetting maybe i could erase the hurt. i thought that forgetting would be easier. it was harder. 

remembering is getting easier. i still vacillate between bitterness & sadness when i think about miscarrying and joy & love when i think about those few weeks i was pregnant. revisiting and remembering initiated healing. and led to wanting to acknowledge and remember the precious life i love and miss.

| love always leaves a significant mark |

we [as a society] do not talk about it. we ignore it. pretend it didn't happen. but it does happen. and it did happen to us last year. 

miscarriage. why is it so taboo to talk about miscarriage?

Da Pacem.

last October Aaron was signed by Symmetrical Records and he began working on putting together an album to release. He chose the alias/name Da Pacem [latin for give peace]

it's saturday afternoon and Aaron is working on music stuff... and I am looking at our finances. actually i thought it was going to be a lot worse than it is. i've been on family medical leave since april and we just relocated to a different state. not exactly the best circumstances but i shouldn't have worried.  

so far in 2013 we have paid off $7,200 of debt/school loans.
