New Year, New Goals

R&R Much Needed

Rest & relaxation and being alone is often needed for me throughout this TBI journey. This is so not like me pre TBI. But it’s an absolute must for me now. So I had a week. I was losing my mind. Living in a camper plus 2 dogs and my husband, not being in the […]

Can’t stop smiling ☺️

I am so in love. With a bike. I got to 22MPh and this electric bike with pedal assist just makes me happy. I can’t stop smiling. I went from racing motocross and living it to finding something still fun and a bit safer. Today was my first day riding it on paved trails in […]

Moving Again… But For A Good Reason

Moving with TBI sucks. It’s hard. I think it is for anyone, adding a brain injury with huge energy issues makes it so much harder. We sold our house and moved again just after 2 years. But this time we are financially ok. We are buying my parents home so they can retire and be […]
