I spend most of my time in my pajamas. Seriously. I have a heart of a website developer which basically means I sleep late and work late. My favorite time to code is after 9 p.m. and I hit my clearest mental time right about midnight. I love almost every minute of it (though I am phasing out of the work side of it now).

My second greatest passion is helping women who have survived abuse. Please don’t confuse that statement to mean that I want to bail every woman out of a financial or emotional hardship…I’m a strong believer that we must fight (mostly) by ourselves to change our environment or it is too easy to go back. And we usually do go back, right? Until we’ve had enough.

I’ve learned to value my quiet (chillaxin’) time. I cannot heal if I don’t take the time to evaluate what my life consists of. When you see me at my most relaxed moments, I am deep in thought on the inside…answering questions to things I find mysterious or deciding the pros and cons of everything in my life. I routinely change things that are too much of an emotional or physical cost and focus on the things that matter.

My husband and I ride motorcycles. I rode with him as a passenger for 7 years before purchasing my first bike in July 2017.  This is our recreation, time together, site seeing adventures. It helps so much for PTSD that I would recommend it to everyone that has an inclination to try. I really cannot even describe how it helps your brain change course. #wintersucks

We have friends from all over the nation from our military family life having lived in California, Germany, New York, and Kansas. Rich has also lived in Washington, Oregon, and South Carolina. This picture is one of my favorites taken by our good friends, Michael and Elizabeth Smith. (You may have read about their missing son here.)

Due to my autoimmune disorder which I have blogged about, I have a major case of brain fog and memory issues. Realizing that I still remember how to do things from years ago (when last month can be a challenge) is exhilarating! I have a philosophy that if I practice new things (short term memory) enough that they will become long term memories and easily accessible.
