I am a self-proclaimed lipgloss redneck; a cross-breed of city girl and redneck. I love bling and all things pink and sparkly, and I often mistake tacky for fah.bu.lous!
Once upon a time, I was an avid “doer” of all things outdoors, but since fibromyalgia blew up my world in 2016, saying I’ve had to make a few life “adjustments” is putting it lightly.
Back in the day, I used to wear dress pants, suits and dresses working in corporate communications, and now a big success is a day when I wear pants that have a button and zipper.
But I am deeply blessed. I don’t have to go this road alone. Along with an incredible support system of family and friends, I have a secret weapon…The Robin to my Batman, my “you had me at hello”…my amazing hubby. Given that we’ve always had a knack for finding (and being) the outrageously funny in life, it’s no surprise that we are using humour, sarcasm and good ol’ fashion fun to learn and create a new way of living that accommodates a loved one living with fibromyalgia.
This is our journey…
And…of course…never far are our trusted sidekicks Arizona and Buddy, our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers.
If you want more of me, don’t be shy:
