When I became pregnant with my first child I was living overseas. I decided to create a blog as an online journal I could share with my family back home. It became something I enjoyed and my family appreciated so I continued as #AvieRayAllDay began her own journey and then as I became pregnant with our second.

This became a huge part of Stand Tall, Shine Bright and I am proud to continue documenting my parenting journeys with all of my readers. This page is where you can find the specific details of both pregnancies: #McVaby and #McVaby II.
