Making an Impact

Sometimes I’ll get caught in the “What if” cycle……

What if no one reads our blog?

What if no one sees our posts on Instagram?

What if our message gets lost in the giant vortex that is social media?

What if our message is falling on deaf ears?

What if no one is engaging with us?

What if, what if, what if…..


And sometimes all it takes is a small reminder that it is making a difference.

A message from a friend on social media saying our post impacted them.

A message from a blog follower that our latest blog brought them to tears.

Someone reaching out to say they saw a news story and it reminded them of us.

A fellow amputee who shares that they wish they would have had a book like ours when they were younger.

Those little small things to let us know that….we are making a difference.

So then it makes me think.


What if…..I didn’t show up that day?

What if…..I didn’t share my heart?

What if…..I didn’t put energy into my blog posts?

What if ….I didn’t write my book?

What if….we didn’t build this community?

What if….I didn’t stand up and advocate for Callie?

What if…..I didn’t try to bring a voice to those who are marginalized?

What if……I didn’t share our story on social media?

Instead of thinking about the masses we might be missing out on…..

What if we didn’t show up for the people that needed us to?

So we will continue to show up, share our hearts, and tell our story.

For a crowd of millions…..or a quiet audience of one.

Impact is impact.





Hi everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! My name is Jaime! Wife to my better half, James, who is my moon and all of my stars. We are parents to our little warrior princess, Callie Grace. We started this blog to share our journey as we navigate through our crazy beautiful life. Callie is a lower limb amputee and I am a Type One Diabetic. We are hoping to change the face of beauty one step at a time! We hope by sharing our story, you leave with a little bit more inspiration and hope!

About Me


Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
