A southern girl living in a yankee world.

Hi there! My name is Candice. I’m a thirty-something living in a small town of Connecticut with my husband and our three dogs (one is a police K9) a cat & a chicken.

Being born & raised in Alabama, I always said I’d never leave... well, never say never, honey!

I’m a total introvert. Our little house with a barn on 3 acres makes it easy to never want to leave.

I love all things outdoors, yoga, fashion & beauty.

I’m a Milieu Counselor for adolescents, ages 14-18. I’m also a psychology junkie but the thought of going back to school + school loans makes me twitch. I’m also in the process of studying for my CRT for Respiratory Therapy. Trying to finish what a started... yes, I’m also a procrastinator.

I know the one thing you’re thinking if you’ve read this far, “why doesn’t a thirty-something not have any children” ... well, let me clear that up for you.

After a year of fertility treatments (3 failed IUI’s, 2 failed IVF’s) I knew from the beginning that I wouldn’t be that woman who tried year after year of fertility treatments. I made the decision to close that chapter and start a new one. Infertility will always be a part of me. My heart is broken, but it is so much more than that. Even now, I have so much hope & faith that fills this broken heart of mine that it’s almost as if the brokenness isn’t there. It seems like I’m saying goodbye to Motherhood, but I’m not. I’m putting my Motherhood in God’s hands. What better place for it? His will, always, not mine. I won’t say I fully have peace with the fact that I may never be a Mother, but what I will say is that I have peace with Him, and 𝓉𝒽𝒶𝓉 𝒾𝓈 𝑒𝓃𝑜𝓊𝑔𝒽.

I’m just living my life the best way I know how.

Press on Nails- By KISS

Absolutely loving these nails. They aren’t pre-glued (which I love). Great quality and comes with many sizes. If your finger nails are small, these will do just fine. ♥️
