it's all about the journey

27 years young. Southern by the Grace of God. Carolina Original. Connecticut Newcomer.Wanderlust. Believer. Animal Lover. Entrepreneur. Music & Endorphins are my therapy. I lost myself in love. I've found myself again and, luckily, love found me again too.

I always get so sad and protective when I drop Lady off at the groomer. She gets this sad little look and it breaks my heart. Even though, I know she will be happier and feel better after it’s over. I’m sure some reading this will think, “it’s just a dog. C’mon!” But, think what you will, lady’s the longest relationship I’ve ever had… Excluding immediate family. She’s my baby.

When this happens, I always think… Will I ever survive having to drop my children off at daycare or school?!? I remember my sister used to cry everyday for basically two years going to daycare.

This morning, I thought my Keurig was BROKEN!!!! I was having heart palpitations because (really) I just don’t want to buy a new one. I would have to… Because let’s be serious, it’s fast and easy in the morning while making some delicious coffee. All the while, saving me so so so much money from going to Starbucks or Zumbach’s every early morning.

I don’t know how exactly but I fixed him! He’s going to live for awhile longer at least.

I’m not used to being loved. I wouldn’t know what to do.

Meet Danny Nickerson. He’s a little 5 year old boy from Massachusetts. While most kids his age would want super action heroes or games, Danny just wants birthday cards. From anyone. Even you.

Danny has inoperable brain cancer. He will turn 6 on July 25th. His parents say he gets lonely from time to time and loves to get cards. Let’s all show him some love!

To mail Danny a card:

Danny Nickerson

P.O. Box 212 Foxboro, MA 02035


I don’t have many followers so please reblog this. His birthday is soon and all he wants is birthday cards. Please, please share this around. I’m mailing mine out tomorrow. And I’m sure he won’t care if the cards get there a little after his birthday (July 25th). Just send one please. Let him know he’s important.

It’s a legitimate story. Have your kid color a picture and stick a stamp on it—there’s still time to make a kid’s day.

I just sent a card to this little boy. You should too.

Send this little boy a card. You all have time! Go!
