HEY THERE LOVIES! LONG TIME NO SEE! I don’t want to ruin the surprise... but there is nothing short of amazingness in store for you! MOCO is relaunching under a new blogger who will be introducing herself and sharing a slew of amazing events and opportunities in the next week or two! I‘m really fond of not only her as a person, but her professional background is just what is needed to continue to grow this AMAZING community of women, local businesses (and even some men! 😊 ALL welcome!). There’s much more for this community & she’s going to see it into fruition!
Keep in mind that you all can’t get rid of me that easy 😏. I look forward to joining events as a guest & supporting our new blogger & showing love to our amazing community! But... I’ve been absent/quiet for some time now... As the blogger & event planner for @mocohousewives
, I decided I needed to focus on this cumbersome battle with my “silent illness”. I “went strong”, though sick, through the motions until February when my sickness hit me like a sledge hammer and stopped me in my tracks. I knew in January that if I continued on as the lead, I’d continue to fail myself, so I had to make the difficult decision to step down from the role I loved & lived for!
My health was at its worst in February as I struggled with #crohnsdisease
to the point of despair. I was losing weight, unable to keep food down, fatigued, in chronic pain, etc. 2018 has been one of my hardest years since my Crohns diagnosis in 2000. Yes, I’ve had surgeries, but this is now 5 months of chronic illness lingering heavily with all symptoms & all medication side effects. Despite the ups & downs, I’m still in the same boat, in the same part of the ocean, but I have a new view, plan and focus! All of my energy is channeled toward health now & I’m confident that while it may take a little more time, I’ll rebound from this episode. So no worries (or medical/health solicitations please!)! I do accept prayers and well wishes & I look forward to seeing everyone around at future events when I’m in better shape! 🎉🎉Cheers to 2018 y’all!!!!! 🎉🎉 #moco #mocohousewives #changeiscoming #newblogger #cheersto2018 #onlyupfromhere #montgomer
