I am a wife, mother, a daughter, sister….you get the idea. My life is greatly defined by my beautiful relationships I have with my family, and especially the relationship I have with my Heavenly Father. I am so grateful. I enjoy….no, that isn’t right…..I love beauty, and I’m pretty good at noticing it all around me. I love music, I play the violin, piano, and I studied voice in college. I actually studied music dance theater in college. So, I do lots of artsy things. I just began painting and am practically obsessed when I have time. ;) I love learning about the body, studying food and nutrition, and am a certified Ashtanga Yoga Instructor.

On April 22, 2014, I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 29. Most of my life right now is centered around curing my body of this disease. I hope that my words and experiences can be of some comfort to any who are in a situation similar to mine or to any who find themselves basically just having a bad day. We all have our trials, and though they are not the same and may not even be relatable, you are not alone in that lame stuff is happening to you. We all have our obstacles or our stumbling blocks. I’ll be writing about mine, and about how I am overcoming them.

It won’t all be about cancer. I’ll write and share my other interests, and who knows what else. Really I just began Chemo and have a lot of sick downtime…so I may even post some silly videos here or something. Anyway, welcome to my blog, and welcome to my journey.
