Hey there! I’m Risa, author of this website. I’m an RN turned freelance writer and personal blogger passionately writing about motherhood, infertility, and health.

My story is ever changing and I’ve been documenting it online since 2012, sharing stories that are at times hilarious and at others, painful. My best stories cover a good mix of both. Life is messy and it’s hard, but it can be so beautiful too. Over the years, I’ve walked through infertility and miscarriage, using donor eggs to conceive our daughter, and am now learning about this whole parenting thing and how it fits into this beautiful mess I call my life. Whether I’m trying hard to make you laugh, or make you cry, I promise to give you a true representation of who I am. My story is still being written and I would love for you to join me in sharing in it.
