Professional dry shampoo user who loves the Bible + that girl with that weird medical thing. The knowledge of man says that there is no reason why I should still be here today, but I’ve long-since stopped putting my faith in man.
ONCE UPON A TIME
Yeah, my life's been a bit of a rollercoaster. I've got this thing called Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (vEDS for short) that I inherited from my mom. In plain speak? It's a crazy genetic disorder that makes life... interesting. I've had everything from a miscarriage to a ruptured carotid artery, and doctors say I'll be lucky to see 48. But guess what? I've got a different playbook. Mine's written by God.
I stopped putting my faith in medical journals a long time ago. My message? God is good, all the time, and I'll shout it from the rooftops as long as I've got breath.
Day-to-day? I'm juggling—like all of us. Dirty laundry, packed lunches, and keeping the dust bunnies at bay. Plus, soaking up all the moments I can with my dream guy and our hockey-loving kiddo. Sometimes, I'm ticking off items on my bucket list, and other days I'm here with you, getting all my thoughts down on paper—or, well, a screen.
When I'm not busy sending out my rescued letters to the world, you'll find me cooking up a storm, drowning in library books, or happily nerding out over everything Disney.
I drool over office supplies and colored pens. And bookstores. My favorite dessert is the molten lava chocolate cake from Chili’s.

NOW FOR THE IMPORTANT STUFF
I am a total introvert and have anxiety over any form of human communication.
I can't whistle. Never have been able to. Probably never will. #wompwomp
I hate grooming. I made my own dry shampoo before dry shampoo was cool.
My taste in music ranges from classically-trained snob to I just got my drivers license.
