Hey, I’m Amy. Super pumped your here..
I am a 30 year old wife and momma with two daughters Isabella (10) and Brooklyn (6) we also juggle our wild and mischievous pup CoCo.
Almost 2 years ago I was like any normal 20-something mom, heck I’m going to be honest with you- I was one of those moms. You know which ones I’m talking about, the pinterest mom who sews her kids matching outfits for all the holidays and handmade valentines treats for the entire preschool.
In january 2019 I started developing health issues that were progressively getting worse, by April I had learned that at 29 years old I had an aneurysm in my aortic root and that I was in congestive heart failure. On July 15th,2019 I went into the OR for my open heart surgery- they would be replacing my entire aortic root plus replacing my bicuspid aortic valve.
Besides developing 3rd degree heart block (a dangerous but common complication) after surgery, needing a pacemaker and having arrhythmias my surgery recovery has gone well. My doctors were hopeful that once my heart was fixed that my body would return to its old self, but unfortunately it hasn’t.
I am now living with invisible chronic health issues. As of this posting we are still waiting on more tests to finally get a diagnosis which will hopefully aid in treatment options.
I have started this blog for a place to share my thoughts on married life, parenting, design, empowering your witchy vibes with essential oils and DIY’s, showing you cute pictures of our pup, plus sharing the messy parts of it all when you add in a chronic illness.
With love, Amy
