I'm a Mormon, a mother, a wife, a reader, a writer, and a bit of an artist. I love my family, people, the arts, laughing, exercising, shopping, and I love life. This blog is my crazy, often comical, chronicle of living a joyful life with depression and anxiety. It's also where I write about...well, pretty much whatever I feel like.

Why did I start this blog? I was lying in bed one night not too long ago thinking about the many private conversations I'd had with friends about their struggles with depression and a variety of mental illnesses. I felt impressed to start a blog about the every day ups and downs of dealing with a mood disorder and other struggles, but I put it off for a while. I wasn't sure I wanted to put my challenges out in the open for everyone to read about. But, in the end, all the inaccurate stereotypes that surround mental illness pushed me to start this blog. I hope I can share a little insight through my experiences. 

I often blog about things that have nothing to do with depression. Those struggles are only a small part of my life and I want to show the whole picture (the magical, comical, and inspiring moments too).  So, whether you have struggles with mental illness or not, I hope you can find joy in this journey with me.
