Fertile Journeys

About Me

My name is Lindsey. I’m 26 years old and live with my wonderful husband in Upstate New York. We were fortunate enough to be able to build our dream home on 5.5 acres of land outside a beautiful little town. We are active in the community: Ross (my husband) through the fire department and me through local politics. We are blessed with amazing families and loyal friends – who are practically family. I work in fundraising for a local college and Ross is a flight paramedic on a helicopter. We have an amazing dog who is spoiled, but deserves every ounce of it and more. We rescued him from the animal shelter, but I think he rescued me. His name is Riley and I talk about him A LOT! Riley has a girlfriend and he enjoys play dates whenever possible. We’re pretty liberal parents and have allowed sleepovers even though they are both young (Riley is 5 and his GF is 2).


When not working, I most enjoy being with friends and family. I enjoy walks with Ross and Riley as well as reading and scrapbooking. I am also getting into fishing which seems to be a fun thing to do with Ross. I’m very close with my parents and wish they lived closer! I have one older sister who makes me laugh all the time – especially at a distance! 🙂 I am a former competitive figure skater, but my new passion is rowing. I am on a local adult crew team – although I’ve had to take a break as a result of this IF (infertility) stuff. I hope to be back on the water soon. I’m really interested in politics. Sometimes I surprise myself at how conservative I am – and more so by the day. I love opportunities to get involved and be a part of the process. I will still never get over meeting Senator McCain last fall during his Presidential campaign – amazing.


I find it’s the little things in life that make me happy. I love grocery stores. Not all of them, but I do appreciate a nice grocery store. My personal fav is Wegmans. It’s not grocery shopping; it’s a shopping experience. I also love the State Fair – I could spend an entire week there and not get bored. It’s awesome. I also love animals. I’m currently very concered with a missing kangaroo near my house – I hope Bandit is found soon.



  1. You are too funny, I will let Riley’s GF know she made your blog and we will be over soon for a little play date.
    On a more important note, I think this blog will be good for you. I know you have a lot on your mind and talking to family and friends is great, but having a place to write things down and share with others that may just be going through the same thing as you is a wonderful thing.

  2. I agree with Michelle. And besides being therapeutic, you are a gifted writer. Gramps would be so proud of you…even as he tried to convince you to lean a little more to the left!! Love you. Mom

  3. Update: The missing kangaroo, Bandit, passed away this week after being hit by a car on the NYS Thruway. RIP Bandit. I hope you are in a better place 😦

  4. Hi Lindsey,

    I came across your blog from the LFCA website. I just wanted to tell you good luck and I am thinking and praying for you & your growing family! I am originally from Syracuse (and I gather that is the city you are referring to) and have made my home in Rochester these last 4 years. I, too enjoy the Wegmans shopping experience – nothing like it! 🙂

    • Hi Meg!

      Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m glad to meet a fellow Wegmans-lover! 🙂

      I appreciate the support and prayers! We feel so blessed to have this little guy and can’t wait to welcome him into our family.

      I didn’t realize I was on LFCA until you pointed it out. Thanks to Mel (AKA Stirrup Queen) for including me! I’ll be checking out the other blogs on LFCA.

      Hope you stop by again – if you have a blog, I’d love to read it – just drop me the link! 🙂 Hugs and thanks!
