Kaysville, Utah

Hello! I'm Mechelle, I am the mother to two of the cutest kids in the world and I am so grateful for them! I am a mother, sister, daughter, friend, student, crafter, baker....and the list goes on! I have been through divorce, overcome abuse, experienced adoption, seen the ugliness addiction has on people, helped friends and family through cancer, etc. All while trying to instill love, hope, and values in my children.

The truth is, we all have hard times in life and hopefully my blog can help us keep our feet on the ground when we feel like life has shaken our foundations to the core.

My son was recently diagnosed with Autosomal Dominant Optic Atrophy (ADOA), he is losing his sight and it is breaking my heart. There is currently no treatment and nothing that can be done- so we are trudging slowly and trying to find some new footing! What an adventure we are on! I will be sharing the ups and downs and hopefully others looking for support can find it here.

Basically sometimes life is rough- and you learn to deal with it! Check out my blog at
