Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.— Oscar Wilde.
Hello and welcome! My name is Alycia. I’m nearly 40 years old, live in Austin, TX with my husband, Alex, and our dog, Apache. (Apache is, by far, the cutest one in our family.) We are a loving, dysfunctional and generally happy family. However, Alex and I decided late in life that we wanted to build our family with children. And so at ages 39 and 47, we’re embarking on a crazy new journey – one that neither of us knows. I will share the ups and downs, elations and woes, surprises and delights, and the complete and utter astonishment of what we encounter – mostly while I contemplate is it hormones, a mid-life crisis or something else all together?
