About the Blog

motherhood, love, and hope after loss.

I have to confess something: I am a little bit scared to tell you what this blog is about.

The reason? Because I blog about grief. (<–This is me whispering!)

I started this blog after my mom died and discovered I really needed it after having a pregnancy loss to boot.

Before you go – I get it. Our culture gets the heebie jeebies about death and dying and loss. But stay with me.

You see, I thought my blog was about grief but it turns out I was wrong. It is actually  about love. OKAY I ADMIT THAT IS SUPER CHEESY. But, it is true. My path of healing since loss has opening my eyes to the need for the four “c”s: community, connection, creativity…and coffee. Always coffee. 

Here are some of the things I like to blog about:

Oh, and if you are curious about the blog name, check out this page. I sometimes get a little woo-woo with the spiritual stuff but nothing too out there.

So, thank you thank you thank you for reading. Truly. I learn as much from your comments as I do from the process of putting pen to paper keyboard to WordPress. You get the idea.

My daughter and me

I’m Sarah, the writer behind mourning dove motherhood.  I live in Southwest Florida with my husband and spirited three-year-old daughter. When I am not writing I enjoy taking in the Florida beauty, counting down days until the Gilmore Girls reunion on Netflix, and playing a very obvious game of “hide and seek” with my daughter. (“Mommy, bet you can’t find me standing here right next to my bed!” Actually, bet I can….)
