Reflection: A Look Back On 2019

There’s just something so exciting about the fresh start of a new year and in this case… a new decade!

One of my favorite things to do on New Year’s Eve each year is to reflect back on the year past and then set intentions/goals/resolutions (whatever you want to call them!) for the year ahead.

For me, 2019 was a year of extremes.  I have experienced some of the highest of high moments and some of the lowest of lows.  I walk into 2020 still walking a fine line between grief/sorrow and incredible joy as we expect our daughter in February after losing our son in December.

Our journey to parenthood will likely be what defines 2019 in my mind forever because it was by far the most significant story of our year.  There was much more to the journey, though, and I’ve enjoyed looking back on the many blessings of the year and sharing them with you here.

Best Plus Size Jackets & Coats For Winter

Winter coats and jackets can be one of the most difficult things to find for plus size women, and I’m no exception.  I spent YEARS wearing inadequate coats that either didn’t fit well or weren’t warm enough in the coldest winter months.

When I moved to New York and spent a LOT more time outside during one winter working in Manhattan, I knew I had to figure out the coat situation… and I really started diving in and researching exactly what I needed to round out my winter wardrobe.

Now, living back in Kentucky and working from home instead of traipsing around NYC every day, I don’t require as much long-term cold weather protection, but it’s still important to have a variety of coats for different temperatures and occasions.

Today’s post features my absolute favorite coat styles that I wear on a daily basis when the temperatures drop.  I think these styles will work great for any plus size person looking to stay warm and look cute this winter.

Our Fertility Story: The Journey To Becoming Twin Parents

If you haven’t read my recent pregnancy announcement post, you may want to start there first… but long story short, my husband and I are overjoyed that we are expecting twins!  I had referenced our fertility journey briefly and since sharing our news and mentioning our fertility struggle again, I’ve since received countless emails and DMs requesting the specifics or asking questions, so I wanted to prioritize sharing our story with you.

Over on my Instagram, I asked what specific questions you have and I’ll try my best to answer them all here.  If you do have any additional questions after reading the post, please feel free to post a comment below.  I’ll be monitoring the comments closely and will reply and/or update the post accordingly.  I’d love to have the discussions here vs. my DMs or email if possible so that everyone can benefit from the conversation.
