I’m a wife to Tim, mother to Dominic and Emmett, a cancer survivor, lover of all things music and I live each day with Crohn’s disease. Before we adopted our two sons, I worked in the mortgage industry; I was an office manager for a drug & alcohol recovery center and I’ve done some accounting. If you know me at all, you know – none of these things make sense. It’s not me. I am a dreamer. I have big dreams of all shapes and sizes. None of which include numbers of any kind, including 9-5. My mom calls me a “free spirit” but I think that’s loving mom speak for – head in clouds, no responsibility, do whatever feels right, fly by the seat of your pants type person. It sounds about right, so I’ll take it. :) 

Life, Lemons & Lemonade is a blog I dreamed up when I realized I had a LOT to say about my Crohn’s disease diagnosis. My own experience lead me to the conclusion that there is room for improvement when it comes to the awareness and education that comes along with receiving a diagnosis like this one. My goal and the purpose of this blog is simple: I hope to reach, help, comfort, support, educate, commiserate, uplift and connect with any and everyone who can benefit from my experience and what I have learned. And along the way, I plan to share the ways in which I strive daily to make sure that I turn my Life & Lemons into delicious Lemonade. (Let’s call it “The Pulp” shall we?)
