Holding Onto Hope

October 10, 2015

Hope — a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.

Sometimes hope doesn’t come so easy, especially after what you’ve been hoping for leads to heartbreak after heartbreak. 

Most of you come here to read about beauty, but today I’m sharing with you all something I’ve been fighting silently for awhile. 


I know what you’re thinking…here’s another one seeking sympathy. All the contrary, I am not here looking for sympathy, I’m here because after several years of going thru this I finally feel ready to share my story. I am finally ready to bring more awareness to such a lonely, hard struggle. 

I have this urging desire to finally speak out, because I truly feel like maybe I can help someone. Even if it’s just by sharing my experience.

I won’t get into details yet, but my husband and I have been trying to conceive for over 4 years. It may not seem like a long time to some, but when your heart desires to be a mommy, it seems like an eternity. 

I have started a blog, that I will hopefully get up and running very soon. Where I will blog about our journey. I didn’t want to blog about it here, I want to keep Beauty With Lily strictly beauty related. But I did want to share with you all, in case you are struggling with this or know of someone who is.

For now, I want to thank you for taking time to read this. 
My only hope is to help reach more awareness and help women struggling. 

Until next time!

Hi there! I’m Lily, the girl behind Beauty With Lily. I am a real estate agent, nurse, wife, crazy dog mom — to our cute little pup, Charlie — blogger, beauty enthusiast, makeup connoisseur, and your everyday twenty-something southern gal.
