You may have noticed that things look really different around here. I’ve decided to follow my gut and switch things around a bit. I deleted old posts, I changed up my about page, and I changed the blog’s layout.
I have been finding a lot of joy in books and reading more than I do when I post about my disease (Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension). Without meaning to, I felt like I had reduced myself down to only my disease, if that makes sense. Like people read my blog posts they would only see my illness and not me, the person behind the illness. What makes me ..me, is so much more than a rare, super serious, and terrifying heart and lung disease. I love books and reading, and talking to others about books. I like food and cooking. I like being in nature (it’s a dream of mine to visit the Pacific Northwest because it’s so dang beautiful up there). I’m funny, empathic, and fluent in sarcasm.
I want my blog to be able to showcase ALL of this.
I haven’t exactly figured out the ‘formula’ for blogging yet, so I can’t promise 100% that going forward my blog will look and feel a certain way. I can promise, though, that I’m going to try and be 100% authentic and share some of my life with you.
