You know, I really couldn't believe that it was April but today as I was driving home for lunch, I realized that all the trees in our neighborhood are starting to bloom so it really MUST BE APRIL! I'm so excited warmer weather is on the way, although I'm nervous about how dry our winter has been here in Utah. We seriously only got one serious snowstorm this year, which means our snowpack is low in the mountains. Everyone is saying out summer is going to be HOT this year. We're trying super duper hard to save up and put central air in the house before June comes, but I'm not sure if we'll be able to swing it this year. Fingers crossed. Anyway, I wanted to take a . . .

It is no secret to the world (or to you all): my dogs are my everything. Yes, I am a crazy dog lady. Yes, I often refer to my dogs as my furbabies. #sorrynotsorry. There is no way I can adequately describe how much I love those two fuzzy bums. Even though they dig holes in my yard, and have chewed up my college diploma, and continuously punch me in the face with their paws when they want pets, they bring so much joy and love and happiness into our home. They keep us safe, they keep us laughing, and they have completely . . .

All opinions are my own We're about to get personal here - but hey, that's what this blog is for: to be a friend, a pal, a "been there, done that" type of gal in your life to help you navigate the waters of living a bold, vibrant life. So, let's just call out the elephant in the room (or blog?) and talk about it: lip care. Specifically: Cold sores. Yeah. I went there. You might be cringing. You might be thinking "Heyyyy there, Chelsie. That is just a little too yucky for my morning reading." But I believe in keeping it real over here and that means discussing the good, the bad, and the ugly. Now that the weather . . .
Yesterday, I turned 28 years old. Weird to say. Weird to believe. Usually, my birthday month is super hard for me - cancer tends to complicate birthdays. But this year was different. This year, I was excited for my birthday and I was looking forward to celebrating it. Dustin asked me over my birthday dinner what made this year so different and it took me a minute before I realized why this birthday has been easier. I am finally proud of the second chance life that I'm leading. It's not perfect, but I can say at the end of every day that I am trying my hardest to make every second count. I would not be ashamed if any of my friends who lost their fight in this life . . .
Affiliate links used. Okay wait, is anyone else seriously freaking out about how March is basically almost over and spring is pretty much here (at least in Utah - hey-o 60-degree weather!) Usually the winter months drag by for me, but I've seriously been so busy and my schedule has been so full that the days are flying by. And yes, as a matter of fact, I have been saying NO to a lot of things so I can live my best #yearofme, but there have been a lot of things that I've wanted to say YES to and it's kept my plate full. It's no walk in the park working a full-time job, running a blog/biz, helping to run the youth group at church, getting to the gym on a regular . . .
