My name is April, I'm a mama of three boys and a wife to my high school sweetheart. I started this blog as a creative outlet in hopes to help me and also inspire others through our journey.
You see my hubby is battling stage IV metastatic cancer... And my youngest son has a very rare genetic disease called Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia. It's a progressive disease affecting mainly his legs, leaving him unable to walk or stand without the use of his gate trainer.
With that being said, I've always been a creative person and love making things beautiful. I was a hairdresser for 15 years and used to express myself through that, but I decided to take a leave, when my hubby was diagnosed 3.5 years ago. My plate was just too full.
In a situation where so much of my life is out of control I find JOY (my middle name) with the things I share here. Home decor and design, cooking and health, style and fashion, and of course my family and our journey.
I'd be so honored to have you follow along and join us in this journey, as I share the little things that bring me to my happy place.
