There goes that number 7 again!

My very first blog post was one of the hardest I’ve ever written. It was a post sharing when I found out about my breast cancer diagnosis; the seven days leading up to my diagnosis. In my post, I talked a lot about the significance of the number seven and how I’ve gone through life... Continue Reading →

Will you be nursing?

There are a lot of things that have gone through my mind these past few months. This is not my first pregnancy. However, a lot has changed since I last gave birth ( 2012). My body has gone through so many changes. One topic in particular that has been tough for me is breastfeeding. I... Continue Reading →

Oh, Baby!

My previous blog post sat in my "drafts" folder for months. Every time I felt like I was ready to share the post, I would chicken out. Honestly, I was embarrassed because I felt as if I had dropped the ball when it came to being my biggest advocate. What made me finally hit "post"?... Continue Reading →

Scrambled Eggs?

I celebrated my 31st birthday last month (5/3). While I've always thought of my birthday as a "big deal," I've found a new appreciation for the occasion since my cancer diagnosis. There's nothing like having a doctor look you in your eyes and say, "we want to make sure you see 30," to make you... Continue Reading →

Many people have already written down the things they want to accomplish next year. I’ve never been big on resolutions because quite frankly they’ve always seemed so cliché. However, going into 2017, I’ve decided to write down just one resolution—LIVE! No, I don’t feel as though the end is near. I feel like I’ve gone... Continue Reading →

In Sickness & In Health

The morning of my wedding it poured. The torrential down pour coupled with the wind made for a rough ride to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. You would have thought I would’ve been a nervous wreck considering the fact that my wedding was set to take place on the beach. I was calm. The rain... Continue Reading →

Reaping in Joy

Psalm 126:5 says, “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.” This has always been one of my favorite scriptures and a word that I constantly stand on when times get tough. So you can only imagine how many times I’ve quoted this scripture to myself over the past year. It has been a... Continue Reading →

Hello from the other side…

The end of this month will mark a year since my last chemo treatment. I can't believe it has been a year! No more blue recliner, no more port bulging from under my skin and no more neulasta shot. Instead of the blue recliner, I spend most of my appointments in waiting rooms and having... Continue Reading →


It’s hard to believe that a year has gone by since the call that delivered the diagnosis. The call that changed everything. This time last year I was sitting in my office waiting to see just how “happy” my Thanksgiving would be. I was awaiting the results of my biopsy. It’s a phone call that... Continue Reading →
