As we looked into morning's crisp blue sky, the bright sun gently warmed our faces. It was a picture perfect day for Lauren Hale's 1st Annual Postpartum Awareness Balloon Release.
We stood in the yard with 2 purple balloons with messages of hope for all Mom's fighting with postpartum depression.
When postpartum depression barrelled into my life, I never imagined I would be standing here, 2 years later, with a smile on my face. Today, I…

I am taking part in something very special this Sunday. It's not a secret cause you're all invited.
Lauren Hale is the author of My Postpartum Voice, and extraordinary blog filled with help, support and most of all hope for women fighting against postpartum depression (PPD). She has reached down into the blackness that I had succumbed to so many times and pulled me out to the light more times than she may know. She is a beacon of…

I knew something wasn't right the second I walked into Dr.B's office. It was a stark contrast to the calm serene ambiance he creates with the dimmed lights and classical music playing overhead. It was quiet and brightly lit and there were no fidgeting patients waiting to be seen.
I went to check in with Lisa, the secretary, but it was 4:30 and she was long gone. She never works past 4. So I took my usual seat against the wall next to the door and…

I could see Chunky's arm waving excitedly good-bye from the porch as we drove away from my Mother In law's. When I could barely visualize his busy toddler body in the rear view mirror, I had already begun to feel the pain of missing him. I secretly wanted to drive back just to give him one more good-bye squeeze. For 4 whole days, I was leaving a big piece of me behind.
My husband chuckled at my weepiness all the way to the airport. He reassured me that Chunky was…

I started my birthday morning out by getting pampered at the salon. I went shorter and darker.
Note: This was supposed to be my fierce "I'm 30 face" but it looks more like "I'm going to eat a sausage" face

Katie at Sluiter Nation had asked if I could share one of my favourite childhood memories of school and the first one that came to mind was the day I, the 5 year old kindergarten Kimberly, became a trend setter.…

Last night as I ate my weight in animal crackers, I started thinking about the final 2 days in my life where I can claim to be a 20 something year old. As each delectable happy facker cracker skipped and hopped it’s way to my mouth…legs first of course because it’s funny…I decided that I needed to stop being so negative.
