Hey there!

Hi, I’m a mom, daughter, sister, dietitian and friend. I was a wife until my husband died…and that’s why I have this blog! Writing a blog is so very personal. When I’m writing, just remember, these are a general set of ideas, thoughts and feelings that have come to me over the last few days (a sum of what I’m feeling) and do not reflect any single interaction or situation that I’ve had, unless I specifically mention it as such. Grief sucks and is so hard to live with but, grief is also a feeling of love that has nowhere to go so this my outlet! Join me as I take one step at a time to live my life after my loss. Thanks for checking out my blog.

Two things happened that brought me joy today. The first is a brand new bed. This isn’tContinue reading “Finding joy”

About Me

Hi, I’m Liz. A dietitian with an insatiable curiousity for science, the unknown and seeking answers to mysteries. The joy in my life comes from my son, every single day.
