New Beginnings

Determination, Never Give Up!

I am SO excited! 4 years, 7 months and 21 days ago this was me. This injury, that should have killed me or left me in a vegetative state only has given me a ton of hard work and determination. It has given me purpose. It left me disabled and that’s a bummer, but I […]

6 Years NO Alcohol

Congratulations to my husband on 6 years no alcohol. Yup he has a beer in hand 6 years later, a Heineken 0.0% because at this point having NA drinks doesn’t bother him or make him want to drink, he just enjoys beer and having a NA beer while watching the game and that’s ok. What […]
