Feb 2010!!

I am very excited to say goodbye to January and say hello to February. January was not the best month, for those of you who don't know Carl and I were pregnant and had a miscarriage. I went in to a doctors appt. thinking I was almost 12 weeks and turns out, there was no heartbeat. It was a really hard time, Carl and I went from feeling so blessed and excited to completely heartbroken. My parents drove down the next day and were here for a few days which was wonderful and we had an outpouring of cards, emails, calls and flowers from family and friends.
I'm pleased to announce it has been around 3 weeks and we are doing much better. My faith and hope has returned and I am focusing on the positive. I have started dieting and doing yoga, I am really focused on being as healthy as I can. My stress level was really high in December and I think all these changes will help that. I believe and pray that we will be pregnant again and when our baby makes an appearance it will be loved and adored.
We are trying to enjoy all this time we have and our life in Charleston.
I went to an Oyster Roast and had so much fun. There was live music and it was pretty warm for most of the day. My new Toyota Highlander fit everyone and all our chairs and then got stuck in the mud!! I freaked out a little but I put it in snow mode and some Erin, Brandy and Erik gave it a little push and we were free!
This past weekend we had a super bowl party and lots of people came. Friends from work and neighbors. Carl and I were both rooting for the Saints so we were happy!
This weekend I am working and Carl is going to a bachelor party then more events lined up! Flogging Molly concert, Brewvival (a craft beerfest, Carl's fave) and then Gabby is coming for a visit.
So, thanks to everyone for all the kind words and thoughts. I really did feel lucky to have such support in such a sad time. I wasn't sure if I should blog about it but it is my life and these things do happen. Hope is isn't too cold where you are, and if it is, come to Charleston for a visit!! Lots of love!
