I didn’t ask for anything for Christmas this year because Mark and I are planning to move in a few months and, well, a home is expensive. This house of ours, although cozy and humble and filled with so much happiness, is also filled with tremendous sadness. So much sadness. This is the house we moved into only a few short weeks into my pregnancy with Ava, hopeful and giddy about starting a family, and this is the house we returned to, arms empty, crushed and altered after she died. This is the place, day in and day out, I walk the same halls where I used to scream until I collapsed under the weight of an unfathomable truth. This house, well, it’s just never really felt like home since.

And so, we’ve been saving our pennies and waiting and waiting and obsessively checking MLS for like, oh, YEARS and we are finally thisclose to being ready to buy another house. But despite all of our penny pinching and a fridge full of no name condiments, Santa kept relentlessly insisting that I need to sit on his lap and tell him what I wanted for Christmas. And by Santa, I mean Mark. And although I think dude was just looking for some action, I guess he thought I was a very good girl last year because he brought me a plane ticket to another part of the world that is sunny and warm and covered with endless white sand beaches.

And we leave, like, soon.

To say I am excited to bask in the warmth of a soft Caribbean breeze and sip, oh man, who are we kidding, gluttonously indulge in the free-flowing girly drinks topped with cute little umbrellas is a bit of an understatement.

So, in two weeks, if anyone happens to be in Punta Cana, come over and say Hi! I’m the one with the sunburn sporting the body of a 12 year old boy with a beer gut.

So I know this is obnoxious, but every time you write a post like this I think you are going to reveal the appearance of two pink line. Guess this time it'll be swimsuit straps. Have a blast!
