About

I want to live every day with grace. This is my goal and my dream.

I am a 27 year old girl working through some hard stuff, both mentally and physically.

My husband was deployed to Afghanistan for the entire calendar year of 2010, and we got engaged February 26, 2011, about a month after his return home. He got out of the Army and took a  job in southern California. We moved here in March 2011 from my home-state of Colorado. We got married in Colorado on the best day of my life, June 23, 2012.

I have a lot of dreams and am trying to overcome a lot of things to pursue them, particularly an inflammatory nerve disorder called mononeuritis multiplex I developed three years ago that as yet has no known cause.

Right now I am a cook, cleaning lady, manger of our household, constant brainstormer of a career that would work for me with my disabilities, and dog-mom to my 1-year old pug. I am obsessed with British and French history and celebrity gossip. I love to read (especially historical fiction), learn about anything, swim, watch reality TV, and be outside in nature.

I blog to inspire myself, to find inspiration, and to keep focused on my goals during this difficult time. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi!

    I am wondering if you and your boyfriend live in Colorado Springs? That is where my hubby and I are right now. I also have a BS in Biology and was diagnosed with Celiac Disease about 2 years ago. I can totally sympathize with your tummy problems and only recently have I begun to have foot/knee/heel pains. I wish you the best of luck in your journey, and if you do live in the local area and wanted to meet up for lunch or anything some time, just let me know!

    If you need GF recipes or products, check out my blog 🙂 You won’t sacrifice flavor for functionality with these. Take care!

  2. Thanks for the comment on my blog! I look forward to reading yours. I spent years studying French and even studied abroad in a French speaking country, but I have lost so much of my conversational skills. Grr! Colorado is such a beautiful state. I have only been twice, but I would love to go back. When does your boyfriend get back? I hope tge time passes quickly for you!

    • My greatest regret is not studying abroad in college, and I don’t usually regret things! I thought I wouldn’t be able to graduate in 4 years since my major was biology and they are so different, but looking back, who cares?! Thanks for stopping by…my boyfriend gets back in January 2011. I miss him so much but I am going to see him in Thailand on his leave in October for 10 days. 🙂

  3. Nice to “meet” you! I saw your comment to me on the Eat Move Love blog and thought I’d check out your blog. Looks like I have another blog to follow is all I can say. You have some great goals and nice book club list, so those alone interested me. I’ll have to keep reading!
    Best,
    Jenna @ readwriteandlive

  4. Great about page! I’m so jealous you live in Colorado. We are thinking about moving there later this year. Pretty CrAAAAzzzYYY! I bet you are about to go crazy with anticipation waiting for your boyfriend to get back. Tell him thank you for his sacrifice for me. 🙂

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog–I look forward to reading more of yours! I’m sorry to hear about your pup passing last year but at least you still have interaction with them, I would love to do volunteer work with doggies. I have a little poodle.chihuahua who I love to pieces!!

    My best friend is in the Army and moving to Colorado next month, I can’t wait to visit her!

  6. Hi! Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog! I’m sorry to hear you’re going through a rough time, but I’ve experienced that blogging can be real support, so I hope it will be for your as well! All the best for reaching your goals and living a happy life! 🙂

  7. I just came across your blog while researching about reactive hypoglycemia and it has been a great support to me. I also suffer from reactive hypoglycemia and anxiety attacks after meals. It’s been consuming my life for a year and I struggle to have enough energy through the day. This is a beautiful blog!
