Pink & Blue

It finally feels like winter today.  Its cloudy and a chilly 32 degrees here, which is shocking considering the 70+ degree weather  we've had the few weeks prior.  I'm cozy in my flannel pants and sweatshirt sitting on the couch looking at the fire blazing in the fireplace.  The pups are snoozing on their bed and I'm watching reruns of Sex and the City...ah the life :)  The only thing I'm missing is my cup of hot chocolate.

I've been hoping for colder weather and now that its here, I can't wait for summer.  Not because of the warm weather, but because of the exciting events that will be taking place.  I'll be turning 30, which isn't exactly exciting because I don't feel like I'm that old.  But, as advised, I'm trying to be happy and celebrate because it means people with CF are living longer healthier lives.  Another exciting event is that my little brother is graduating high school.  I'm proud of him and look forward to his new chapter …

A Heavy Heart

I'm writing with a heavy heart today.  Some of you out there may have heard of a little boy from Kentucky named Dalton.  Well, he had CF and sadly he lost his battle on Saturday night.

I didn't know Dalton, but I found myself crying over his loss.  Is it odd to mourn someone you didn't even know?  Somehow this special 9 year old boy managed to touch my life.

CF is real - CF takes lives and it doesn't care how old you are.  Life is short, and I must remember to cherish every moment I have.

With the Great Strides walk approaching, I've found some added motivation to raise money.  We can find a cure!


Hello?

Anyone still out there willing to read my blog?  I've done it again and disappeared.  I took a little hiatus and enjoyed the holidays with our family and friends.

I was blessed beyond compare and received more gifts than I deserve.  We spent Christmas Eve at my mom's house - yep, we packed up the dogs and had a sleep over so we woke up Christmas day at her house.  It was great!  I haven't woke up there for Christmas morning since college - crazy!  It made me feel kind of sad that it had been so long, but we had a great time opening gifts and then cooking breakfast together.

Then, we headed to West Virginia to have Christmas with Will's family.  We opened gifts, and had a nice family dinner - Will and I were responsible for the fried turkey...and it was fabulous!

For New Years, we went up to Snowshoe, WV, and celebrated with Will's brother Brent and his girlfriend, Julie.  As you can imagine, there was a ton of snow and it was a BLAST!!  We drove home on New Years …
