I decided to create a place to document my life as a want-to-be mother, a Westie owner, and a so-so Martha emulator. I am working on celebrating my life and the things I love about it.
The last few years have changed me dramatically. My husband and I were married in July of 2005, and our puppy Duke joined our family in October of that year. In 2006 I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, and have been struggling to control my symptoms. I have been on a journey to find my career path, and have stumbled a few times along the way. My dream is to teach Theatrical History on the collegiate level, but my grad school career has been put on hold until my husband and I can make it work with our lifestyle.
I enjoy cooking and crafting, but I hate to clean. My family lives a few states away, so my husband gets to taste my concoctions while eating around my craft projects.
Right now my challenges are dealing with our son Bryce's death in September, losing 75 pounds, and getting our house ready to be put on the market next spring. Obviously the worst issue is getting through the grief process, and both my husband and I are trying to do that by remembering him and living our lives in a way that he would have been proud of.
So here's to life!
