Drowning my Sorrows in Chocolate

We have been trying to get pregnant for 15 months now.  I thought this month I was — I had all the symptoms: same sick feeling I had with the last 3 babies, fatigue, and a tummy that screamed “DON’T TOUCH ME!!”

I was so sure of it that I asked my husband when we can celebrate.  But three days later I found out I was wrong.  There were tears, but then I resorted to Ghiradelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate morsels — a sorrowing woman’s closest companion.

If I can’t fill my belly with a child, Chocolate is a good second!

About Heidi

My name is Heidi and I live on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. I have three young girls and a baby son, and a husband who makes me laugh. We love to turn up the music and dance in the livingroom, bend down and smell fresh grass, and play at the beach in the sunshine. I run a stand up paddle school, sharing good times with tourists on the island. I love teaching stand up paddling, and it proves a challenge to do a good job raising a family while running a business. Like my post? Please leave a comment.
