Get 2 Know Me

20140307-153209.jpgHi, I’m Corey, welcome to my little space of fun.  If I had to describe myself in 5 words I’d pick – Outgoing, Silly, Determined, Caring and FUN.  7 years ago, I met my meat-eating, Canadian prince in Houston and we got married 2 years later.

After our 1st year of marriage, we decided to leave Houston to see the world, as expats.  Our first assignment was the beautiful island of Trinidad.  We spent 3 amazing years there enjoying the colorful sights, lovely people and created some awesome memories!

In June 2014, we were about to head to Dubai when London called…  Across the pond we went with our suitcases filled with bathing suits and shorts…lol  We are city dwellers now, although technically, the U.K. is an island.  London is AMAZING – public transportation, so many parks and flowers, people w/manners, the cool weather, loads of rain and enough culture and travel opportunities for a lifetime!

Life is great, but it’s not without it’s challenging moments.  One thing no one saw coming while living in Trinidad was me getting diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.  Diagnosed at age 33, two years ago, my life now is all about balance, blood sugar, pokes and insulin.  I could be sad and “why me” but instead I live each & every day to the fullest.  It’s so cliche but once you come close to dying…it’s true.  I thank God everyday for my amazing life and those in it that make it so special -my husband, family & friends.  I couldn’t have survived the whole thing w/o them!

I always say what’s on my mind and share almost everything…  The good, the bad and the sometimes ugly.  My blog is my space to be creative, share my life and hopefully inspire some along the way.
