Hello.

I am Leah and I have Bipolar Disorder. To make life even more interesting, my husband, Dan, has Stage IV Cancer. He was diagnosed at 37 and has  been in ongoing treatment for 4.5 years! We also have a healthy and rambunctious 7 year old. So follow along as we try to manage our life together and strive for love, gratitude, and joy.

One Week In Photos 9/30 - 10/7

Dan's parents have been here hanging out with us for two weeks. It's super cool.

You can't keep him away! Out of the hospital and it was the 2nd place he wanted to go. :)
FaceTime is so rad. We are lucky. We were talking to Doug, Rita, and JD in this photo. Now they are here visiting!

Lots of kissing. And I did a little retail therapy. Dan got a new shirt. :)
Raine got new tools for his back yard "work." (Basically moving little pumpkins around all over the place.)

Care packages have been AMAZING. Our friends are phenomenal.

Raine is getting LOTS of packages too. It is so sweet. Thank you. We have had fun playing with him.
Dan, Raine, and Sarah finally put together Raine's big boy bed that we got him for his birthday. (Handyman Raine was sure to wear his safety goggles and tool belt.)
A favorite song came on while eating dinner at Nick's. "These Arms of Mine" by Otis Redding. Had to dance! <3

Back to Work for Me...!
