Another milestone has come and gone; Lacey and I have been a team for a year now. As the day crept upon us, I really couldn’t believe it had been a year since she came into my life, but then again she has become such a part of not just my life but my family…

Selling My Independence

This week was a big milestone in my journey of acceptance. I am actually quite surprised that I did it and finally let go of something I had been holding on to so tightly.

Beautiful Art by a Stargardt’s Friend :)

I'd like to share artworks created by Jenna who has Stargart's Disease. These are a few of my favourites. She creates such gorgeous, emotional works and to think she doesn't have her central vision I can't believe how absolutely amazing they are. It is truly inspiring. Thanks Jenna!
