About Me

Accountant by day, superhero by night (You never know…It’s possible!!), mom, ouchie healer, teller of tales, singer of nursery rhymes, crust cutter, dealer of fruit snacks and now widow.

I was married to a man with the patience of Job and the heart of a giant. And we have two amazing little boys… BJ (‘My Sunshine’) my oldest, and B2 (‘The little General’) my youngest (4 years younger than BJ). BJ was the inspiration to my blog he was a micro preemie, born at 24 weeks gestation and just 1 pound 8 ounces. I wanted to use this blog to talk about prematurity and our day to day lives after the NICU.

Unfortunately my blog focus changed March 2014 when my husband… my love… died of heart disease suddenly and without warning or a goodbye. The man who encouraged me to write has now become my reason.

My blog now documents my journey as a widowed parent… and grieving wife. These are my thoughts, struggles and accomplishments after being thrown into being the sole parent of BJ and B2. I’ve gone from fighting for my sunshine’s health to fighting for my family’s sunshine… for our peace of mind and a new sense of balance and happiness.

This is our journey.
