So, Kendall, EB & I went to Nordstrom yesterday & we bought an "I Beat Cancer's Ass Watch". Its so incredible - I'm totally in love with it!!! I'm a watch sucker anyway - a bad habit I picked up from my husband! I wanted something with a leather band & we all totally fell in love with this silver snakeskin band. Almost makes all those hours in the chemo room worth it.
Maryann also sent me this amazing tanzanite ring. I just have to include a picture of it too. The color is stunning - I cannot wait to wear it. Right now I just keep opening the box & looking at it in amazement.
More good news, my dad has finally gotten to the bottom of all his health challenges & should be headed home from the hospital today or tomorrow. I think he's been in there for 2 weeks & he has had several procedures in that timeframe. If you are inclined to prayer, please pray for him to have a safe & uneventful homecoming, for him to heal fast & for him not to wear Maryann out!!
I'm a working mom & wife in Nashville, TN. Kendall & I have been married for 15 years and have 2 beautiful (well we think they are beautiful) and smart (I've always hated how girls are called beautiful above smart) daughters, who are 7 and 13. We live in Oak Hill just outside Nashville with our menagerie of pets (2 cats, our dog, Jessie, and our new puppy Syd).
I have a job that I absolutely adore working in building products marketing. I have a fantastic team at work, I travel a lot & work hard, but it is so rewarding and enjoyable.
My hobbies are traveling, reading, cooking, baking, photography, and fitness. I spent most of 2012 undergoing treatment for an extra-skeletal Ewing's sarcoma - surgery, radiation, chemo, etc. I started writing this blog when I received my diagnosis, both as a way of documenting my journey and as a way of keeping family and friends informed of my progress.
Now I continue writing occasionally as I try to get back into shape, learn to return to a normal life, and discover what it means to be a cancer survivor.
