Where ya been?

I’ve received a handful of emails, asking where I am. So, I thought that, maybe in this brief moment, I would check in with the world.

Let’s see.  Last time I spoke, a dear friend of mine had passed.  I still struggle with this almost every day but I know that he would want me to drive on.  So I am and I have. Not just for him, but for me.  See, I haven’t been around here because I won. Really, it’s a good thing that I’m not around as much. I just stay so busy, living.

Here’s just some of the few things I’ve been living through and loving…

Doing hair


Met the Penguin


Started swinging metal sticks at the ground


(I’m pretty decent at it, too. I mean, relatively speaking, for a beginner..)

Climbed a mountain..


Alright, alright. I took the ski lift.  Big deal.

Had some Elvis sightings; in Las Vegas..


Double whammy on that luck, there because I won three small jackpots.

Took silly photos with friends


Hung out with two of my favorite people in this world


Fell in love


Got my first Mother’s Day card


Got better at playing this game


Won a skateboard


Met Harold and Kumar in Las Vegas


Shut up. In my world, they are Harold and Kumar

Stayed strong because the weekend was coming


Slept in his bed


Got new boobs, ate cheesecake, you know..the usual.

So I leave you with this. No one is going to give you permission to live, so go do it already. Get off your facebook, close all your browsers and get off your cell phone.  Go do something. Live already.

Hugs and Sunny surf,

    Hi jessica! My aunt sent me your YouTube video and I just watched it and found your blog. I got a bit teary eyed. I am 27 years old and was diagnosed with stage 2b breast cancer 6 months ago. I also had a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. I don’t have the brca mutation-though my mom had breast cancer as well. I am glad to see you are doing well and know that your video did inspire me, as I’m sure was you’re intention to help others. Thank you

    Hi jessica! My names Becca. My aunt share your YouTube video with me tonight and I watched it and found your blog. It was very touching and I am glad to see your doing so well. I am 27 and diagnosed with breast cancer just 6 months ago. I recently had bilateral mastectomy as well. Your video was moving and inspiring and I wanted to thank you for that. I admire anyone who has gone through this and shares their story to encourage and educate others. Thank you!

      Hi Becca!
      Thank you so much for the comment! I’m sorry for the late reply as for some reason, I haven’t been receiving notifications from the site. How are things with the beast these days? I hope all is well for you at this time!
