I like to believe that I am more complex than an ‘about me’ page can possibly handle but I think that’s just wishful thinking. I am 30-ish years old and after suffering a fall in March 2016, I can now add ‘paraplegic’ to my list of attributes. I know, you’re jealous, but I promise not to flaunt it. I am a mommy to three amazing kids who have this wonderful dad I get to call my husband. My family was, and is, my motivation to take my life back; I survive on them, sarcasm, white wine, popcorn and good conversation. I am stubborn and loyal and have come to realize that I’m also a tad bit entitled (I’m working on it). I believe in universal accessibility, equality and that life is a lot better when we are kind to one another (and when we can laugh at ourselves). Some days I’m a complete emotional mess and some days I almost have all of my shit together. I’m slowly getting my life back and apparently think it’s enjoyable to share my accomplishments and my heartaches with whomever wants to read them. I will always be honest – even if it’s not pretty. So welcome to my life. Let’s see what happens.
