Welcome to my blog! On February 9, 2016, I lost my brother Erik to addiction, mental health issues and ultimately suicide. It has not been an easy road. But, since his death, I have grown and learned so much about life and about myself. For better or for worse, this loss has sent my own life on a completely new trajectory. Please, join me, as I stutter, fumble, and grow into who I was meant to be as a mother, wife, daughter, professional, and human being.
