Summer 2011 June- August (Part 1 of 2)

I started this Summer off thinking about last Summer. The Summer of Dreams 2010 tour that took us to Farm Sanctuary, The White House, and to several awesome places in Pennsylvania.

I had this deep urge to go inwards and reflect. I thought about how happy she was leading up to her surgery and how well she recovered (albeit it difficult). She is my hero. I was "distant" on the blog (which all will change starting now), because I was living in so much fear. Fear for her life. Fear for my sanity.

If you have ever had a child on death's door, then you know what I am talking about. I have made my mind up to be honest, straightforward and to use this blog for what I originally intended it for...To show my daily inspire and ot motivate.

So bear with me as I open up my life to you (good and the bad) and hope that you all can get something from it :)

Here are some photos I reflected on from Summer of Dreams 2010 
 Kennedy and a Cow at Farm Sanctuary

 In ICU...feeling really sick.....
 AT home post surgery. After 4 rounds of adult steroids. She wore a headwrap and therefore so did I :)

 THis summer (2011) I bought a vintage bike. Facing ALL my fears from now on (more on another post). Started wtih this hippie baby...but returned her after I almost DIED on side of the roads. Faulty breaks. Smh.
 Replaced her with "Pink Pattie"...I LOVE her. The kids in my neighborhood helped me a lot this summer with riding!

 Turned my VW Beetle from this...

Into THIS!!! A true reflection of my inner hippie-ness :)
Getting back into shape this Summer! Look at my ass :)
