Shattered Hearts

The Friday of Labor Day weekend, Alex and I learned the devastating outcome of this first pregnancy.

After our 20 week ultrasound our doctor casually told us that in a couple of weeks we were scheduled to get another ultrasound to get more pictures of the heart. At this time I asked if the doctor wanted more pictures because something looked wrong with the heart or if the photos weren’t detailed enough – the nurse replied stating the latter.

After being reassured, Alex and I posted on Facebook the gender of our baby and started getting even more excited about our firstborn. I began the process of registering for gifts, Alex and I signed up for baby classes at the hospital, and we even started planning out the décor of the nursery. Three weeks later our dreams would be crushed.


Family Classic Movies

Below I’ve listed the movies that I remember watching during my childhood over and over again (excluding animated Disney movies – those will come later).

One of my very distinct early memories is of me sitting in my tiny chair eating mini-marshmallows as I enjoyed one of my favorite films.

This guide includes movies that the whole family can enjoy and I wouldn’t mind if my own children one day watched them repeatedly.
