Different is Beautiful

February 27, 2019 in Warrior Princess - No Comments

We got Callie a little sign for her room that says “Different is beautiful.” It sits right next to her unicorn figurine on her dresser. We’re at the stage where she doesn’t want to be different. She wants to blend in. We’ve…

Your Mind Will Always….

February 27, 2019 in Sentiments - No Comments

Your mind will always believe everything that you tell it. Feed it faith. Feed it joy. Feed it with patience. Feed it with humor. Feed it with trust. Feed it with miracles. Feed it with wildflowers. Feed it with laughter. Feed it with song. Feed it with sunsets. Feed it with…

A Good Reminder

February 27, 2019 in Diabetic Diva - No Comments

One of the best parts of my job is that I get to share my “patient” story with our teams. Today, a good friend asked me to speak at his town hall and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I…

Life is not perfect. Life is messy, complicated, perfectly imperfect. And that’s what makes it beautiful. Callie doesn’t need a perfect mom. She needs to see me struggle….so she can see me overcome. She needs to see me fail….so she can see me improve.She…

When You Grow Up….

February 23, 2019 in Lifestyle - No Comments

What do you want to be when you grow up?The older I get, the more I realize the answer shouldn’t be one word. What do I want to be when I grow up? Someone that’s brave. Someone who’s confident in her body…

Just Dance….

February 23, 2019 in Motherhood - No Comments

The struggle was real this morning. Callie did not want to get up. Did not want to go to school. Did not want to eat breakfast. And apparently thought that M&Ms were a healthy option for an after breakfast dessert. So…

About Me

About Me

Jaime

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
