Becoming mom and dad…

We are at week 39 and what a journey this has been. Emotions are running high now with the anticipated arrival of our daughter so near (next week, fingers crossed) and the end of life as we know it. I often stroll through our home, baby stuff sprinkled throughout, and can’t help but start thinking…

#HausofMeier: Dining Room

dining room

Black. It is one of my favorite colors (or is it a non-color?!) The mood it sets, the contrast it creates… it just gives me all the feels, okay!? Inspiration Images Upon moving into our home, I knew the minute I laid eyes on our dining room with its bland walls, brass chandelier, white marble…

#HausofMeier: Home Gym

This room was originally a sitting room off the Orangerie, but quite frankly, we didn’t need another room to sit in. So after some convincing from my husband, we decided to transform the space into a home gym. And I am so happy we did! It is hard enough to get motivated at times, but…

One Year Without You

Today was not what I had thought it would be. I anticipated feeling low, hollow, and having the unpleasant reminders of what it felt like to see my mom take her last breath. And maybe it would have played out like this had I not absentmindedly scheduled our anatomy ultra-sound for this morning. Maybe it…

Mother’s Day, 2019

Mother. A title you never took lightly. A job you managed to do so effortlessly. A love I had only experienced as a child for her mother. A love I’ve never known till now. A mother for her child. And I finally understand how deep rooted that love runs, how indescribable it truly is. How…

This is brain cancer.

brain cancer mir

I remember looking at this scan last March with tears streaming down my face not needing to know the details – the image was very clear. The cancer was becoming all-encompassing, which was apparent through my mom’s seemingly rapid decline. I believe it was at this moment, for the first time, I truly felt hopeless.…

Love is…

WisConcierge Blog

What is love to you? A short while back, I explained a recent practice I have been incorporating into my days, and it is focusing on and dissecting what a word means to me. It is a limitless exercise, meaning it can mean anything to anyone – no need to place restrictions on how you…
