Hey guys, I promise this isn't about what you think it is. It's more about how life has changed since this virus appeared in Canada, more specifically Alberta. I mean, realistically, a lot hasn't changed in my life. I'm still at home, still with our girls. We pulled them out of their playschool & toddler… Continue reading Covid…What?
Mental Health Update
I’ve always promised to be honest when it comes to life, and my journey with Burkitt’s Lymphoma. I started seeing my family doctor again because I was struggling.

What’s Your Favourite Holiday?
Just as the title asks; what's your favourite holiday? Personally, I love Christmas. Not because I get gifts, but because it generally means being surrounded by family. I also LOVE Christmas decorating and baking. I usually decorate quite a bit for Christmas.

Depending on who is up first,… Continue reading A Day in the Life; Cancer, Recovery & More
