Happy Monday!

Happy Two Year Angelversary Emily!

Happy Two-Year Angelversary Emily!

At only 14, you were taken so soon but you left in style doing what you loved most, skiing with your team on the snowy mountains in Tahoe.

Love you SO much and miss you every day sunshine!

This is a wonderful video put together by another one of Emily's friends. 

It's filled with her bright smile, sweet voice and the ever apparent twinkle in her eye.

Skii the day away in paradise sweetpea. 

Fly high, Soar.

Kidney Infection

I never take naps. 
So when I slept for 8 hours during the day on Saturday, 10 hours on Sunday and 5 hours on Monday on top of my normal nightly sleep I knew something was up. I also started breaking out on and off yesterday after my morning dance class which happens when my body's fighting something off. 
Then yesterday afternoon I started having back pains and by the middle of the night was woken up in severe, can't move at all, back pain. 
Went to the doctor today and yes, I have a kidney infection. On top of all that I'm having signs of a developing staph infection so to battle two birds with one stone, tonight starts a 14 day course of antibiotics (Azithromycin).

For now, I'm still smiling (and not in as much pain with my constant rice heat pack companion on my back) and hope this optimism and laughter will continue throughout the medication treatment!

Happy Tuesday!!

Happy One Year Blogoversary to Me!

Hard to imagine but it's my blog's one year blogoversary!! 

I never could have dreamed about how many new friends I would make within a year of blogging! 
I started this blog as a way to make connections and record some of the ramblings of my everyday life and come away having not only accomplished those things but also with a mindset that has me walking through life with optimism and appreciative of so many things I had ever previously thought twice about!
I also never imagined that I'd make it to a third post let alone an entire year of posts!

In the past year, here's  three of my favorite posts!

And of course the post that started it all!

I for one think this momentous occasion deserves a virtual toast!

Here's to another year (and beyond!) of bloggy friends and happiness!!

Okay, okay, my toasting skills are not the greatest! Haha! But in all honesty, I love you guys and hope that you all have enjoyed reading my blog as much as I've enjoyed writing it!

Great, big, gigantic virtual bloggy blogoversary hugs!!

(Do you see my name!?! Proof! :] )
