About me

Location Bend, OR, United States
Introduction Hi! I am Amber. I am a 26 year old wife and mother. My husband and I have been friends since junior high, and were married on July 29, 2007. We have 2 children, our son Alex (born January 2008), and our daughter Cadence (born February 2009). The idea of this blog is to introduce you to a woman who has struggled with Type 1 diabetes since I was 17 months old and been able to still live my life and create a beautiful family. It has definitely been a ride, with weight problems, health problems, doctors, dietitians, diabetes education classes, etc. It has also been a beautiful ride, because everything that I have gone through has made me a smarter, more motivated person, with a desire to succeed and help others do the same. I will be writing about everything from my life with diabetes (and what I have learned about fitness and nutrition from my own personal research and experience) to family, interests, and just life in general. After spending the last 2 years being a hermit, it's now time for me to come out of my shell, get back into the world, and meet new people. I hope you enjoy following and are able to get good information out of my blogs!
