A very kind person made a comment to me the other day. She had looked at some of my Facebook photos and then said, “I’m so glad to see you are happy now after all you’ve been through.” That one really got me thinking. How do you measure happiness?

This space of mine has been neglected lately. Between home life, my day job and The Sunshine Co., I feel like I’m going in a million directions.

This time last year, we started fundraising for the annual Cure SMA Walk-n-Roll that happens in our area. CureSMA is an organization we were introduced to shortly after Blake’s diagnosis.
