I was born in Columbus, OH, have lived in New Orleans, LA and eventually settled in Portland, OR in 2005. I married my best friend and love of my life and we created two amazing boys and one day at a time are creating a beautiful life as a team. There have been ups and downs through the years and in the last year I have woken up, become ALIVE. This blog chronicles where I have been, where I am now and what I am striving for. Thank you for reading and following my journey.
