Welcome to my blog!
Hi, I’m Erin. A 30 something Etsy shop-owner, massage therapist, wife, mommy to adorable twin boys, dog-mommy, daughter, sister, and friend.
My husband, A and I were married in 2013. He is the love of my life, but also my best friend and greatest support. He has been with me through diagnosis and sickness and all that comes with lupus. He is truly the strongest and best person I know. I could go on and on about this guy. 🙂
Life has certainly changed for me over the past few years.
I gave birth in April of 2015 to fraternal twin boys after a very healthy pregnancy. I never knew I could love two little people so much!
They are now energetic almost 3 year olds who keep me on my toes!
My other family and friends are super important to me…
They have supported me and loved me even when I didn’t deserve it!
All in all, I am super blessed.
I started this blog to spread awareness and information.
In 2008, I decided to take steps towards becoming more healthy, and ultimately lose weight and feel better. I ended up achieving those goals and learned a lot along the way. But, sometimes life will surprise you with how quickly it can change, and give you a multitude of new things to learn.
In 2011 I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. After getting over the initial shock, and learning to (pretty much) cope with my illness, I make a conscious effort every day to continue on this lifelong journey to be the healthiest I can be. I refuse to just give up and give in to an autoimmune disease. I will do what I can to be healthy and live the best life I can. There is still so much to learn, but I also want to share what I do know with people who could use this information.
Since then I have found a passion for wellness, nutrition, fitness, and just trying to live a healthy lifestyle! I definitely don’t know everything, but I am eager to share what I know, and to learn from others as I go along. The human body is so complex, I am sure this will be a never ending learning experience!
