What an exciting day! In the spring of 2012, I started this blog as something to do during a long recovery from a very serious illness. I’m a writer with a pretty solid background in SEO. Yep. I used that knowledge to bury the initial blog so no one would find it. A few months ago, with the encouragement of family and friends, I decided to make a real go of it. I developed a name that would honor my roots and goals in life, picked a domain, got some help moving the old blog to this site and I’m ready to roll! I found this little ditty on Pinterest and it seemed the perfect addition to include. On this beautiful fall day, my blog begins again. While I’m keeping the stories of my struggles in my archives, I’m moving forward with hope and optimism for the future.
