thank you

Yesterday, I posted about how I tend to be extremely guarded about my privacy. I've realized it is for that very reason that I began posting about starting a family.

With the exception of my husband, I don't feel comfortable talking about this topic with any person in *real life.* Maybe, in time, this will change, but for right now I cannot do it. Not even in sort of an obscure "alice, would you ever consider adoption" kind of a way. I've always been like this - prefering to control and limit what people know about me.

Despite this inability to share, I also realized that I need support. I need to feel connected to people. I need an outlet.

So, I just want to say thank you. Thank you to all those who have popped on over with a warm welcome and the kindest words of encouragement.

I thought that this blog could help banish tears from the work place, but this morning there are a couple. Not because I'm sad, but because I'm feeling very touched.


  1. Here from Lost and Found and Connections Abound to welcome you to the blogosphere.

    Part of the beauty of blogging is the ability to be completely honest yet remain hidden. Thousands of strangers have seen the inside of my uterus on my blog, yet not a single person in our families has ever heard a peep about trying to conceive, infertility, or treatments. And that's the way I like it!

    Gorgeous photos!

    Best wishes to you.

  2. i've learned the best bloggers are honest bloggers. well, that goes for everything. the best people are honest people too. i have only been on your blog a few minutes and i already like you. because you're real. and it helps me relate. i don't even know you but suddenly i am dying to share things with you!! so thanks for this post. and i wish you and your husband all the best with starting your family. it's not easy...i know.

    happy weekend!

  3. thanks so much naomi. that means a lot.
