August ICLW

Welcome to August's ICLW. I hope you enjoy this week, find some new blogs to follow and reconnect with old friends. I truly enjoy ICLW and look forward to it each month! I hope to see you around.

Fall has arrived here in Finland. I hope your summer has been good and warm to you (unless you are in the southern hemisphere, I hope your winter wasn't too cold). The sun is still warm when it isn't rainy, but you can definitely feel the nip and chill to the air, especially in the mornings and at night. The trees haven't started turning yet, but I'm sure they will start changing soon. Even though I love summer, I also love the colors of fall.

A tiny bit about me:
I'm 35 and Mr Siili (DH) will be 37 on Tuesday. We've been TTC for 3 years, as of this month. AF arrived today in full force, making this the start of cycle #39. We've been on break this summer from treatments and I know this cycle is completely out as I'll be out of the country during O, but cycle #40 will hopefully be an FET cycle.
If you want to read more about who I am and my TTC journey so far, you can click the tabs above.

And just because I like to share a bit of fun stuff for my intro ICLW post, here are some random questions that I found on a friend's blog:

My neck! I slipped and fell a week ago, went to the chiropractor on Friday and my neck spasmed this evening. It hurts like crazy! Thankfully I have another chiro appointment on Wednesday!

Green and sometimes more grey than green. Yes!
