Welcome to The Sunkissed Peach!
Updated: Oct 28, 2019
Thank you for joining me on this exciting new adventure I am about to take! I am joyfully and vulnerably taking on married life, motherhood, and everything that comes along with that.
I want to let you get to know the girl behind the computer screen or phone screen! When I go to a new blog, the first thing I want to know is who is the author? Well, this is me!
Mariah | The Sunkissed Peach
I am married to my college sweetheart, Aaron. He is my handsome hunk! We met our Freshmen year of college, but didn't date until our Junior year. We got married in July 2015. We honeymooned in Mexico (Thank you Carnival Cruise Line!) and had a blast drinking tequila and enjoying the sun!
Once we settled into married life, we went through some very big life changes and some of the top stressors in life. We got married. Moved. I started a rigorous graduate school program. We went through tremendous loss. In March, we lost our angel baby. In April, we lost my dad.
Dealing with Loss
After going through the loss of our child and my dad, I was diagnosed with Major Anxiety. I would get panic attacks when my phone would ring. My heart would pound when I passed trigger points. I found myself wanting to retreat and isolate myself from the world. I was afraid of what might happen to those I loved. I felt trapped and scared.
Searching for Joy
Our rainbow babe, Addie was born in January of 2017. In the midst of deep sorrow and pain, God brought my sweet daughter, full of life and joy. She has shown me a glimpse of God's love for us and has brought me hope on my darkest days. She truly is a gift.
The Sunkissed Peach I started The Sunkissed Peach as a way to process and share my story. I found as I reached out to other writers, that many of us go through life events that connect us to others. I wanted this to be a place of uplifting encouragement that embraces the joys and challenges of life. I want to share my adventures and learn from you. Thank you for taking this journey with me, Mariah
