About me

I’m Alicia! Daughter. Wife to Mark. Momma to Preston and Gavin. Lover of coffee, pets, and books. Bookworm. List maker. Crafter. Optimist.
I’ve been married to the love of my life for the last almost 9 years! We have two boys, 6 chickens, 3 cats, and a dog and are currently searching for our forever home! I was a perfectly healthy person until age 15 when I obtained a virus which was diagnosed several years later as Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. Our youngest son has special needs and I’ve become a passionate advocate for individuals with special needs. I believe in taking the life that you have been given and making the best of it. You will often hear me say “It is what it is.” That is my life mantra. Accept what is and make the best of it! Please join me as I chronicle our journey to look for the sunshine when skies are gray!
