I met Leah in college and adored her bubbly personality and love for everyone. We didn't really hang out a lot or anything, but we were friends. We reconnected a while back on Facebook, and I was shocked to learn that she has had cancer TWICE since we graduated from St. Bonaventure 8 years ago!!! Through her battle, she has met some friends who are also living with cancer (and kicking its ass!). One of the people she has met is Zach. He is a finalist in the LiveStrong Challenge. PLEASE consider watching this video and voting for him. I know it would mean the world to Leah, Zach, and everyone who knows them!
I'm generally a very happy person with a deep appreciation for my life and everyone/everything that touches it. (I say 'generally' because even I have my moments...). I'm so in love with my husband of six years, and we enjoy everything from quiet evenings at home to biking to exploring Europe together. I'm a big tree hugger and I often find myself thinking of ways to reuse things instead of throwing them away. That makes me a bit of a pack rat, but I'm trying to get better about letting things go. I decided to start this blog because I often find myself pondering the weirdest topics, and I love to write, so I thought this would be a fun stream-of-consciousness exercise. I'm very opinionated on some topics and very passive on others. And sometimes my opinion changes based on my mood. In my journey through life, some of my beliefs have changed, mostly based on personal experience and/or deep reflection. I've had this blog set up for a while, and I've had other blogs before this, but I've only recently started really writing what I think, and I've learned a great deal about myself because of my (sometimes very blunt) honesty. Thanks for reading!
