Here is what I celebrate! In 2019 I had a year of coming off of one of the longest healing and physical obstacles to overcome in my life from 2018. Gained EVERYTHING back, felt horrible and had the reality of a loved one with a major life even... Read more

Can't believe we are in the middle of August. What a summer it has been. I jumped into a pool on 6/10, the day after the busy rush of dance recital season. Pushed up from the bottom and my left knee didn't feel quite right! Later that evenin... Read more
