I'm Still Here

It's been a little over one year since I was declared "cancer-free". August 8, 2013. One of the best days of my life. I wasn't ready to celebrate with a big "I beat cancer" party just yet but I did treat myself to this awesome Stella & Dot Necklace as my survivor-versary gift. Maybe when I hit three years cancer-free I'll have a big party. That the prize my eye is on.


I've had very few cancer "scares" since I've finished treatment and for that I feel really blessed. I feel good overall. I did have a small rubbery lump above my right foob (non-cancer side) ultrasounded a couple weeks ago that was declared to be "fatty tissue" and nothing at all suspicious for malignancy. It was pretty nerve-wracking though because the last time I had a breast ultrasound they told me there was a 95% chance I had breast cancer. 

In the past couple of months I've finally started to really like my hair. I've been wearing it wavy which is easy and people say it looks cute. Here's a recent pic of Elise and I that I love. She's so stinkin' cute and I like my hair in it.

I feel so blessed to here today -- going to work, chasing around my rowdy toddler, and living life. I couldn't really imagine that I could be here 17 months ago. God is so good. He really is able to do immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine.



  1. So happy for you and love seeing all your pictures on IG of the little one! :)

  2. I'm so glad you're doing well. Both you and Elise are beautiful. I say this so rarely but you really deserve a happy and carefree time with your little girl.

  3. One year!! I think the necklace was the perfect way to celebrate one year of good news.

    You are looking great, and little Elise is cuter than ever. I am so happy to see where you are right now after the past few years. You deserve all the happiness that you're surrounded with right now!

  4. One year!! That necklace is beautiful.

    SO thrilled to see you happy and healthy at the one year mark. So many more awesome years to look forward to!
