Hello there, thanks for checking out my little space of the world wide web! Hard to believe I’ve been blogging for over 6 years now… This crazy awesome journey started when my husband and I moved to Trinidad. Living in the Caribbean was amazing and full of so many awesome things, I had to start documenting it all.
About a year later, my life was filled upside down with a traumatic foot injury and then a near death experience followed by a Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis. Yea, it was a shitty year but I got threw it, it’s still hard but things these days are much better.
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. 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.
My husband got me into running 6 years ago and I haven’t stopped since!
I couldn’t even run a block when I started…
xoxo from LONDON
