Last year I was facebook stalking...or working as I like to call it. I was looking for new models to come model for me at Overstock. I stumbled upon a girl named Mary Ann. I emailed her, reassuring her that I wasn't a serial killer, and that I wanted her to come in for a test shoot. She came in and was a total ball of energy. I knew, not only did I have a new model, I made a new friend. I know this sounds dumb but its not easy meeting new friends when your are 26....er...21. I got to talking with Mary and I discovered that she was dealing with the same stinky mess I was. Infertility. Her perspective on the entire thing seriously changed my life. I stopped throwing a pity party for myself every day and remembered to smile and laugh. She was my rock while going through all the injections and hot flashes that come with IVF. I honestly don't think I could have done it without her support. She is amazing. This last Saturday marked our one year anniversary so we celebrated in style by shopping and lunching and buying things we definitely don't need...its what we do best.
Its kind of funny how certain people come into your life when you need them most. Life works in mysterious ways. Thanks for everything Mary! I love you to pieces. Follow her blog here for fun fashion and makeup ideas.
