This blog is just about my life and mostly revolves around my son, Jamie. This blog is a combination of everything, whether it may be a new recipe I tried, a good freebie I found, something funny Jamie said, or feelings I'm having about life in general. There's little rhyme or reason. I'll never win any blogging awards, but I enjoy writing about our lives and I mostly do it for my son. It's so easy to forget moments over the years. I've got all these little tidbits of our life in print and I hope that someday Jamie can enjoy them.

I called this blog Mother of Life, Mother of Loss because of my issues with pregnancy loss and the joy of finally bringing this wonderful person into the world. Truly, I feel the pains of loss, but you won't see too much of that here. I am blessed and I am, above all else, a mother of life.

After all the years of infertility and loss, Matthew and I were blessed with a surprise pregnancy. We were pregnant with twins, but unfortunately, Baby A could not stay with us. Baby B grew into a healthy and happy baby girl that we named Bella Marie. We are so blessed to have two beautiful children.

Clean Out the Cabinet Soup

I woke up with a horrid cold yesterday.  By 9:00am I had a fever of 103.  I knew I wanted some nice hot soup to break up the congestion.  I searched my cabinets for stuff to make a nice hot soup with.  I threw a variety of canned goods into my crock pot and it turned out fabulous.

  • 2 cans of butter beans
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of tomato sauce
  • 1 can of mixed vegetables
  • 2 cans of white chicken meat (my husband bought it)
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup of hot salsa
  • oregano
  • red pepper
  • black pepper
  • chili powder
  • garlic
Well, my guys won't eat soup with veggies in it so the soup is all mine.  I'm still feeling yuck this morning so I'm having soup for breakfast.  I have plenty to freeze, too.
