I went on my first cancer date

I thought my dating days were over. When I was young, I dated guys trying to find Mr. Right. Then I found him, my soul-mate and those dating days were over. Then after I had Princess Peach, I started “dating” other moms not in a romantic way but in a play-date/friend type of way. It [...]

This past weekend marked the end of Princess Peach’s first year of dance with a weekend of recitals. At not even 4 years old, her dance school had a technical rehearsal, a full rehearsal and two dance recitals! It was a very busy weekend but one that was so exciting! She absolutely loved being on [...]

Stolen Moments

Playing a guitar duet with Little Dude. A funny conversation during breakfast. A nudge to get out the door. An impromptu dance party. Whispering sweet nothings in Princess Peach’s ear after she’s long asleep. Those moments. Are stolen away from me. Stolen because I’m currently not able to be the mother that I once was. [...]

A heart full of love

thank you

I have to thank everyone for all the messages, emails, texts, phone calls, snail mail, packages, flowers, food, company and most importantly support that I received since I’ve shared the news about my cancer diagnosis. It has been nothing short of overwhelming and has made me realized how loved I am by so many people. [...]
