It is my hope that my openness may resonate with you personally, or help bring more awareness, understanding and compassion to what life with chronic migraine is really like.

     I walked into last year ready for a new season, growing our family and new adventures. I could tell you that it was one of my best years yet, but that would be a lie. I feel like part of myself was crushed in the last 365 days. It honestly was one of the most diff...

     That list in your head (or on your notepad) feels like a mile long and almost impossible to accomplish, am I right? Living with chronic migraine has taught me a lot about the things on that list(s) that actually matter. I used to put everything on it from laundry...

    When you spend a lot of your time in one space, it is not just important to like it- you should love it! As a person that has chronic migraine, one of the spaces I spend a lot of time in is my bedroom. In our early years of marriage, we move around several times be...

    Welcome to the new year! It's day 1... For some this can be exciting, and others feel overwhelmed. For me, it is a chance to refocus my thoughts, direction and purpose for the days to come. I never set some impossible goal or make crazy new resolutions. Each new ye...

     Sometimes personal health during the holiday season falls to the bottom of your "to-do" list... but don't let it! Your personal health needs to be at the top, especially if you want to truly be able to enjoy the special days ahead. I am not talking about worrying...
