Little about me....

Welcome to my little space in this world. I am a Lyme Disease Warrior, mother of 4, wife to a wonderful man, and happily living in the Pacific Northwest! I try my best to share things that help others… from baking tips, dealing with kiddos, personal struggles, and the hard things that life can throw at us.
