Wiggin' Out

Does anyone else have a week where they think to themselves, “gosh, can I please just catch a break?“ Round 2 of chemotherapy hit me differently or maybe it’s because I was more prepared for what was coming- minus the pounding headache. Instead of being miserable and enduring the punch of the Red Devil onContinue reading “Wiggin' Out”


It's Only Hair

What a beautiful journey! The path up my mountain has definitely been scenic and I can’t believe the wide range of beauty I have seen so far. The most beautiful part of this journey is all the love and support you have given to me and my family and we are so grateful. It’s yourContinue reading “It's Only Hair”

All the Feels

You guys, ROUND ONE is done and I’ve been enjoying my off week, but as I start planning (cause I’m a planner) for my next treatment on January 29th my stomach knots. I’m not looking forward to the nausea, fatigue, bone pain and the progression of hair loss, brittle nails and dry skin (just toContinue reading “All the Feels”


Yesterday was a whirlwind, but I do have a take away. What’s a person without their accessories? When this whole process started the only accessories I would wear included necklaces and earrings and the occasional clutch. Nothing fancy unless it was for a special event. Now my accessories include: an implant and expander, a port,Continue reading “Accessories”

Cheers to the New Year

Wow, what a year! 2019 was a roller coaster year: Melanoma – Jamaica – Grandma’s Marathon – Larsen Bean Bag Tournament – Tiny House Adventure – Washington – Breast Cancer. There are so many other wonderful things that happened and for those moments of joy I am so grateful. Now it’s time to turn theContinue reading “Cheers to the New Year”

Under Construction

Father, This world is broken and broken things happen- yes. Even still, I can’t help but feel utterly shattered and disillusioned when heartbreak is part of my story. I don’t like this- I only like dust. But dust is one of Your favorite ingredients to use when making something new, and I believe You areContinue reading “Under Construction”

thanks-giv-ing (n) the expression of gratitude, especially to God. Sure this past year I have hit my fair share of bumps in the road and you better believe it when I say I’ve got a few bruises too, but it has only made me into a better, stronger, more grateful version of myself. I amContinue reading “Thanksgiving”

I’ve been robbed

“Cancer robs you of control over your life and body. But it also teaches us that we never really had control in the first place. It’s humbling and empowering at the same time.”- Dr. Jordan It’s been a restless week. A week filled with appointment after appointment. It’s crazy to think that I have livedContinue reading “I’ve been robbed”

I found a lump

Never thought I’d find myself here. However, I feel like subconsciously… I knew. I was headed to Seattle, Washington to visit some family when we flew past Mount Rainier, when I lost it… I cried and thought, how amazing is this? I am just one tiny piece of the puzzle. How lucky am I toContinue reading “I found a lump”
