  15. Dumbwit Tellher says:

    Sending lots of prayers indeed. Been there too, like so many of us women. No one can say or make the hurt go away, and each person handles it differently, just like any mourning process. It just take time to heal.

    Hugs to you and thinking of your husband and family as well. xx

  16. thevoyageofv says:

    I'm so very sorry to hear this. I know there's not much to say at these moments. My mother miscarried before I was born, and my parents were devastated… But they kept trying and eventually they were stuck with me 🙂
    I hope that you will feel better soon. Keep your head up.

  17. Ms. Bright says:

    Sweet girl, the Lord has this in His perfect plan…even though that's hard to understand. Just think- one day, your child will have no doubts about how loved and cherished and wanted they are!

    I am so so sorry. I've been through it and while it is hard to get over and understand the "why me", I will say the D&C is the easiest part of it all. Take the time to grieve your loss with your husband and a million virtual (((hugs))).

  21. Brenda says:

    I am so sorry that this has happened. We are all here to support you and pray for you. I went through this twice and I know what you are going through right now.

    Camila, I'm so sorry to hear your news. We have been trying to concieve for 20 months and are in the process of IVF #1 now. After all that we go through to have children it is gut wrenching to miscarry. I'm so sorry for your loss. Be good to yourself and take as much time as you need. We will be here waiting for you when you get back.

    I've been viewing your blog for awhile now but I don't think I've ever commented. I just could'nt not comment today. My prayers go out to you and your husband. I have never been thru a miscarriage but am currently dealing with some fertility issues myself and all I can say to you is let yourself feel whatever your feeling. It will get easier. Think positive and know that the future holds wonderful unexpected things. Good Luck on Monday

  43. Chris Salek says:

  44. Jess @ Frugal with a Flourish says:

    Lots of love and prayers are headed your way! 🙂

  45. nkp says:

    This is such a tough road, Camila. I've been lucky enough personally never to experience what you are going through, but my little sister went through the fertility process and I know what a difficult, but ultimately rewarding road it was. I'm so glad you have a loving, supportive partner to lean on. I hope you bring comfort to one another. I'm so sorry for your loss. This can be so devastating. Sending love your way.

  56. Honeygo Beasley says:

    My good friend had six miscarriages (!) before she gave birth to two beautiful boys. She had two successful full term pregnancies after six miscarriages, and those boys have grown to be wonderful individuals. I once read that miscarriages are most likely male embryos that are not strong enough to survive. For some reason, the male embryo has to be strong to mature full term, perhaps more so than females. I cannot imagine how you must feel; it is such a personal, sensitive loss. I hope your faith and the support, love and compassion of those around you keep you strong in this difficult time of loss and that you have the family you always wanted.


  57. Sweet Nothings says:

    oh camilla…so sorry. your in our prayers. God works in mysterious ways, remember that.

  60. Jaime says:

    So sorry to hear about this- you are so strong. Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving, though 🙂

  61. The Zhush says:

    This is devastating news. I too experienced what you went thru, and even though it happened over 10 yrs ago, I remember it as a very sad and dark time for me. I had 3 miscarriages in all, but happily, I now have 3 beautiful children. For what its worth, I found reading a blog called alittlepregnant, so comforting. The writer went through some awful times as well, her writing is so hearfelt, and yet humorous as well. Best of luck to you.

  62. Blair says:

    Oh, my! I am so incredibly sorry. And My thoughts are you with you, Jon and your family. All my love to you all.

  63. Dobbygirl says:

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Don't blog unless you feel up to it- we all understand.

  78. journeychic says:

    I'm so, so sorry to hear about this. I had a miscarriage in August (very, very early in the pregnancy) and am grateful that nature took its course. It was really helpful for me to hear from other women who'd had miscarriages and then went on to have successful pregnancies. For so many women it's a taboo topic, so it's wonderful and brave that you chose to share this very personal matter with all of us. I wish you and your hubby all the best!!

  79. Shelby says:

    I'm so sorry for your loss…i to had a miscarriage earlier this year. It is heartbreaking so my thoughts are with you and i'm sending you prayers that you get pregnant again soon!

  81. Jennifer says:

    my goodness Camilla! my thoughts and prayers are with you, Jon and your families.

  82. Merrisworld says:

    I just want you to look at this on the positive side, A miscarriage is your bodies way of saying something was wrong with the baby so I know it is a heart ache but at the same time it is a blessing in disguise. Your next attempt i am sure will have a happy ending

  83. Centsational Girl says:

    Darling Camila, you are on my heart today and I am praying for you.

  84. Jamie says:

    The EXACT same thing happened to me. I didn't find out till 11 weeks and had to have an emergency D&C at 12 weeks. It was really a tough time for me. You aren't alone.

  85. Sherry Petersik says:

    We are so so sorry for your loss. You're in our thoughts and we're sending lots of love your way.

    Sherry (& John)

  87. Emily says:

  88. Christine says:


    So very sorry for your loss, but will continue to keep you in my prayers.

    There is a blog I happened on once by a girl who chronicles her quest to have a baby and experiences with infertility treatments. It may help to read about someone else's experiences:

    Keep the faith

  94. h2urHOME says:

    I'm so sorry to hear about your bad news, I lost my twin girls in July (they were born 3 months early) so I know how heartbreaking all of this is. Give yourself time to grieve and do it your own way and take comfort in the people who love and care about you. My prayers are with you.

  95. Meg says:

    Camila, I have been so behind on my blog reading, and yours was the first one I opened today, I'm so sorry to hear this heartbreaking news, you're in my prayers…

  96. Design Esquire says:

    I am sorry for your loss, and my thoughts go out to you.
    I am quite new to your blog, but like it already and have started to check back often..May Allah Bless you. Take care.

  99. Jackie Von Tobel says:

    So sorry about your news but I just became the aunt of twin girls two weeks ago and my sister had two miscarriages of twins and three years of invitro before this happy event. For some reason you've been given more of a challenge in getting pregnant but once you do have your child it will be all the more sweet for you. I'll keep you in my prayers just don't let the journey get you down.

  100. Sara says:

    I'm so sorry, Camilla! A friend of mine just went through this as well. I know it happens sometimes, but I'm sure knowing that doesn't make it any easier.

    You are in my prayers!


    Sara @ Pretty, Pleasant and Practical

  101. Katherine @ Grass Stains says:

    I didn't comment when I read this originally, but over the past few days I've felt compelled to come back and do so! Even though we are strangers, I just wanted you to know that I am devastated on your behalf and that I am thinking of you and praying for you. I had three difficult pregnancies, but all three resulted in healthy babies, and I am eternally grateful for that. It's my greatest wish that you experience the blessing of a happy, healthy child in the immediate future! I admire you for opening up such a personal experience to your readers and for giving us a chance to support you with words. All the best …

  102. katie, dave, lucille and winston says:

    this scenario is all too familiar. my heart hurts for you. but i am glad to hear you are positive and feeling better a day at a time. i am so sorry for your loss.

  103. Kilgore's says:

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know it isn't what you want to hear now but these things happen for a reason. I couldn't get pregnant for a long time then had 3 miscarriages before we got our beautiful girl. I now have 3 girls but have had multiple miscarriages in between each, including twins last summer. Though it is difficult beyond belief, I feel it has made me a better mom. I have much more patience with them and I appreciate them so much more than I was capable of before. I never even minded being up all night with them because I felt so blessed to even have them. It has especially helped since my 3rd is very colicky.
    I don't know if you follow religion but I was once told that the body forming inside of me was not perfect enough for the spirit to complete her mission here on earth. It is very comforting for me for some reason.
    Anyway, keep your chin up. And continue to talk about it. People don't always understand how hard it is and are often afraid to ask, even if they want to.

  104. Sarah - La Jeune Marie says:

    Oh Cam, I am so so so very sorry this happened. I had no idea you and Jon were trying to start a family, so I didn't know what to expect when reading this post. I am sure it has been said over and over to you, but please email me if you need anything at all. In addition, I am deeply sorrowful for your loss. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

  105. Becky says:

    I'm almost three weeks late here because I just found your great blog. I am so very sorry about your loss. We lost our first baby at 24 wks. She was stillborn. It took me until our son, who was two years from being born at the time of our loss, was ten to live through July without tears and all sorts of distress. I don't remember just how I came to think this, but at that time some how I started to see our loss as a "gift". Our little family, by then included a little girl (almost 8) too, was given it's very own guardian angel. I hope you someday find peace in your sadness.
    God bless,
    ~Becky <><

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
