New Year

It's 2017! A year I kind of never thought I'd see.

Elise is 3.5 years old and at an age where she is finally making real, lasting memories. Since before she was born I think about how long I'd have to make it for her to have memories of me. Morbid? Yes, but true.

Fall 2016

 It's been 3.5 years since my mastectomy/ I'm rounding the bend to it being  years since I was diagnosed. And I'm finally sliding down the steeper part of this survival curve.

Since I never really expected to live this long I've been doing a lot of soul searching recently about what I really want from life. Like what do I really want from my career? If I can have more kids do I really want them? What about adoption? What kind of house should we buy? I guess kind of normal 30-something questions about life.

I did make a decision about one thing! After growing my hair out for 3 years I decided to stop and leave it at collarbone length. I realized it was one of my favorite lengths (and I've not had them all) and it's easy to maintain, so I decided to stop there.

It's 2017. Prayers for another healthy year are always appreciated.
