Overwhelmed By Love

Plato thought that the Gods had split us in two and that’s why we yearned so desperately to find our other half. Some spiritual corners think we’re looking for our twin flame; that person that is the yin to our yang. Either way you look at it, this person no matter how well they fit…

Nothing On Board

On Day 66 Aunt Flo finally decided to make her appearance. So I might be malfunctioning a little but I’m still not on the baby train. And I still have the opportunity to do the marriage before the baby carriage I guess. On the upside, I have learned a tremendous amount about fertility and what…
