17 months in now. Thinking back it feels like coming out of a dream. And even though I now have a grip on things and my skin feels like my own again - I can't help but look back and reflect on this journey. The miraculous ups and the hideous downs. It's a chapter of my...

I've been sharing this blog journey with my wonderful husband, Danny. He is right there with me all along the way, as he always has been since the first time that we met ... in a Good Earth Coffee Shop in Cranston, South Calgary. A blind date ... a set up ... I walked...
