Mrs. February

I don't know why I didn't share this earlier, but I had the honor of being Mrs. February 2012.  A few  months back, Marissa reached out to me and asked me if I would be willing to be part of he 12_12_12 Project which shines the light on one new condition or cause each month.  Marissa lives with a vestibular disorder.  Something  I had never heard of either before we met.

I thought that I have done a lot of research and reading about Budd Chiari Syndrome.  Boy was I wrong.  Marissa wasn't joking when she said she wanted to learn more about it.  She was buying books and drawing diagrams.  She wore liver disease awareness shirts to her appointments.  And even her Grandma AKA Gram, was rocking the awareness bracelet!  Thanks Gram!

On Tuesday Marissa posted the podcast of our interview.  I was so nervous I was laughing.  And now that I hear it I am still laughing at myself.  I think I sound like a 5 year old.  But we are our worst critics I guess.  Be easy on me, it was my first time doing something like this.  I have Skyped with family and talked on videos that I have of the boys, but this was in a whole new category.  Hopefully you all enjoy it.

So jump on over to Marissas Blog and check out all the work she put in to this.  I just want to say Marissa, Thank You again for inviting me to be a part of this.  You are amazing.  Im looking forward to learning more over the year.  Got nothing but love for you girl!


  1. What Marissa is doing, is great! It's nice to know there are others out there who still have it in their heart to care for others, while dealing with an illness. People like me, who aren't sick, have no excuses :)

  2. Kim! This post is totally going to pump me up to get through today! You rock.

    Much love,
