I’m a first-time blogger. Here, I hope to process, vent, and document my mom’s journey and my own. To protect the privacy of my mother, my family, and myself, I will blog with a certain amount of anonymity.

I live in a suburb of Washington, D.C. on two acres of land, with my beautiful and rambunctious daughter, two dogs, and my husband–whose snores make our house tremble and whose laugh makes me smile and yearn for those carefree teenage days with late-night drives and headlights beaming against the passing trees.
