4 Years Ago

4 years ago today I sat down on a clunky desktop and typed out this post. I was tired. I was bored. I was stuck inside all day with a 2 month old.

I missed writing and had been sucked into blogs by Beth Anne and Ashley‘s way of writing their lives for an audience.

4 years.

How long did I struggle with coming to terms of writing on here?

This has been a much different story on here than I imagined 4 years ago. I never thought I’d have documented almost losing our first home, watching Sam rejoin the military, a move to El Paso, or deciding to homeschool.

I’ve chronicled Bella’s life and her milestones, announced twins, an adoption, and another baby. This blog holds three of the start to finish lives of my sons. I’ve cried and grieved and railed against God. I’ve fallen in love with my husband all over again and again.

How to Change Your Facebook Page Name

How to Change Your Facebook Page NameI recently changed the name of my Facebook page from Diana Stone – Hormonal Imbalances Blog to Diana Wrote. It was an easy process, but there were a few things along the way that Facebook decided to make a bit – confusing.

So after several of you asked how to do this, I decided that it was easier to explain with screenshots and a step by step. You can click to enlarge any of these screenshots.

We Hired a Doula, Hypnobirthing, and Other Things You Should Know

So yesterday, I met with one of the women who lives here and works as a doula. Crazy story – we actually met through Rebecca of Better Life Bags at Blissdom. She was there to help with her set up for selling, and a group of us all went to lunch. In introductions, I found out she lived in El Paso, but we never got back in touch after. The other night on Instagram she mentioned she would love to offer her services. I had forgotten her name, and was convinced it was someone in Dallas or Houston that happened to see the “Texas” location for me.

Nope! She was still here!

I’d given up on finding anyone about a month ago. There are a few here but with my preterm labor and all the other stuff it seemed almost impossible to work with anyone. I think one of my biggest fears about the hospital was going into labor before my mom got here, and having Sam as the only one. If he had to leave, what would happen? When no one was with me was when all the crazy stuff happened before.

Having her there solves that completely.

The Cruise in ALL.ITS.GLORY

I’ve been terrible about updating about the cruise. You know me and being so overwhelmed with something I can’t write about it at first.

But I finally did!

I included my favorite pics and moments, even embarrassing ones. I plan on doing an entire series of how to cruise with Disney, from savings to packing and everything there is to do on board. The good, the bad, the FANTASTIC.

So please to enjoy part one of an overview of the cruise Bella and I took. Click here…
