Y'all, it's been crazy. Daniel moved home from college. Bethany had a dance recital. And I made the incredibly hard, brutal, gut wrenching decision to leave the job I loved and take an exciting position. This was a selfie I sent to my husband on my last day, right after saying goodbye to my boss.… Continue reading Life update…
Anyone else love this haunting song by The Band Perry? It's so beautiful and sweet and yet so sobering and makes you think a lot about what you would want to tell others if you too died young. https://youtu.be/7NJqUN9TClM I'm not really "young" anymore.

On Saturday, we ran in the Derby Mini Marathon in Louisville, Kentucky for the 3rd year in a row! On Friday night we headed to the Expo...

For many, March is all about March Madness... basketball, tournaments, spring, fun! For me, it's quite a bit different. March is all about MRI Madness in our house. Time for the pre-authorizations, phone calls from insurance companies verifying my very expensive scan, expensive copay's, messaging my favorite MRI tech to make sure she's working during… Continue reading MRI Madness
My husband, Brian, is my best friend and the most selfless person I know. I don't know how I would have been able to navigate the past three and a half years without him by my side.
