I’m Franchesca, just a wife and mama who loves to write, make artwork out of quotes and IG pics and gather decorating ideas for our home on Pinterest. I’m also lately intrigued by the whole ‘crunchy’ movement. I don’t use shampoo or conditioner and I’m trying to perfect my own laundry soap recipe.
You might notice there’s a lot on this blog about loss, and mostly that is because this blog started as an outlet for all the emotions I had no idea what to do with after losing our first daughter. Writing the blog, and connecting with a community who could relate to what I was going through was more healing than I can ever put into words. Today this space lives on in a different way. It’s a testament that I’ve survived, and if you have faced a loss, you will too. I hope you can find something here, and in our story that gives you hope. Life has a way of pushing through, even when you don’t want it to.
Since our loss, I’ve found some measure of healing, a lot more happiness than I ever imagined I could, and a deeper faith. I believe that we are each given a story. And that story can either make us or break us. But our stories are gifts that have the power to make all the difference in the life of another.
This is our story… my gift to you.
