Welcome

2020 is finally here !!  With the New Year I wanted to start a new chapter and share with the world what its like to now be a mama to a 18 month old boy and pregnant, due June 2020!!  Originally growing up in the Seattle area I always craved a simple, slower pace of life.  My husband and I moved over to the eastern WA in the summer of 2017.  I was jobless for the first time in my life but was determined to find a solution over on this side of the state.  No risk, no reward was my motto at the time.  Shortly after moving to the Eastside of WA I suffered my second miscarriage.  I went to several doctors and the conclusion was unknown I had just turned 34.  I was always focused on my career up until this point in my life and having children wasn’t my focus until we moved.  I was determined to understand more at the time as I was truly devastated.  I decided to look into a fertility clinic for further education, however they were months booked out.

After 2 months of waiting to get into the appointment I had a strange feeling I could possibly be pregnant just with how I was feeling,….so I took a test.  I was in disbelief however with my previous struggles of fertility I still wanted to get some understanding.  When I went into the appointment I had mentioned I thought I was pregnant however I was scared as this was only 2 months since my last miscarriage. They were able to confirm at this appointment that I was in fact pregnant and suffered from a a thyroid condition called hypothyroidism.  My son was born in July 2018 and here I am a mama of one with another on the way!  I wanted to start this blog to open up about my life, learn from other people and share with others my experiences.

About Me

My name is Lindsey, originally from the Seattle, WA area (born and raised).  I grew up eldest of 3 girls in a suburb of the Seattle area on the Eastside.  I have worked since I was 11 years old, often babysitting and trying to find ways to make money on my own.   I always wanted financial independence from my parents and strived to find different ways to earn a living while continuing my education post high-school.  

  Continuing my post high school education was important to me and my future but I also craved the independence of working as well.  I soon came across an opportunity with a telecommunications company and quickly learned they payed for college education, books etc.  This was a huge huge benefit for me and I couldn’t pass this opportunity up as I would have the best of both worlds (financial independence and continuing school at the same time).  I worked for various roles within this company for 13 great years and was able to complete my bachelors degree. I also met my best friend, now husband at this company and got married in 2011.  In early 2017 my husband left his long time career in telecommunications and found a job opportunity in Eastern WA (we both yearned for a much simpler pace of life than the life we both had growing up on the Eastside of Seattle, WA.)  By summer of 2017 I decided to take a huge risk and move to Eastern WA and leave it all behind, jobless and all!  As scary as this all was (as I had never not had a job for as long as I could remember) I was ready for the next chapter and challenges this brought to my life.  I knew that in life if you don’t take risks there is no room for growth & happiness. By 2018 my son was born and it changed my world forever in the best way possible.
