"I'm lovely because... Why is it so hard to answer that...? I'm lovely because I am strong. I have had some unfavorable things thrown at me in the game of life, and I have tried to handle them with grace and humor and not let it get me down. 

Over the last few years I have been trying to make myself as physically strong as I am mentally. I completed my first half marathon in 2015 and am working on two more in 2016! 

I am constantly thinking about blood sugars, carbs, insulin, and bolusing. My daughter was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes at the age of 12 months. So no matter what I am talking to you about, that is all going through the back of my head. 

If I had to classify myself into one sentence, I would say that I am an over-analyzing, sarcastic, funny, control freak and I am so thankful to be all of those things! Now go check your blood sugar!"
