I’m Darby 💕 I’m 24 years old, living in Manitoba Canada. I am a mom, step-mom, daughter, aunt, granddaughter, great granddaughter, friend, niece, cousin, and co-worker.

I met and immediately fell in love with my best friend. He has been my rock, and always will be. I can’t picture my life without him, and I love him more than he will ever know! He is the smile on my face, the sunshine in my days, and the beat in my heart. Without him I would be nothing. He has shown me how to be myself and he makes me a better person.

Not only did a gain a best friend to go through life with but I also gained a step-son. He is the sweetest, kind-hearted little boy, with the cutest smile, and I love and adore him to bitty pieces! He is an amazing little boy and I cherish each moment I get so spend with him.

In July 2016, I was blessed with my beautiful baby girl who we named Mckenna. She was born with several complex congenital heart defects, and a rare birth syndrome which caused her heart and organs to not develop they way they should have.

This blog holds my journey of becoming a new mom, caring for my beautiful girl and her very complicated heart.

I created this blog as an outlet for me; for me to unwind, to sit down to, express myself, to take time for myself, release stress, and to hopefully make my hard days a bit easier by sharing my words.

Half a heart, not half a life. 

From my heart to yours,
