See tallest trees in the world. ✅ Finally got to mark that off my bucket list! 📝📌🙌🏻 I’ve heard about the Redwoods and the giant Sequoias from my grandpa while growing up in Indiana. 🌲🌎😲 I was determined to visit them once I moved to California! @bradneu, @ddneuhaus and I went on the Van Damme 5 mile hike. 🏕🚶🏼♀️I absolutely loved surrounding myself with nature. Fresh air 🍃, a babbling creek💦, huge trees 🌲🌳 and lush landscape🏞 provides those negative ions that recharge you! 💪🏻🤗🔋
I attended a women's conference called IF: Gathering over the weekend. ✝️ The event hosted 60+ women who were assigned to 10 tables. 🦋I was seated with 6 others. 🙏🏻Seated right across from me was a woman whom I never met named Katrina. 👋🏻👩🏼 I quickly discovered that she also has #type1diabetes. 💉 I pulled out my @myabetic case to show her, and simultaneously she pulls out THE EXACT SAME #myabetic diabetes wallet - just in charcoal!! 🙀😻 We even use the same glucose meter and insulin pens! 🙌🏻💁🏼♀️❤️ God definitely has a sense of humor! 😂😋 It's unreal how He has been working in my life this past year since I was diagnosed. ✨📆 I believe with all my heart 💕 that He had this in store for me, and is using this disease to help me connect, educate, and change other people's lives (including mine). 💙🙋🏼♀️☀️🌈🌴
I've been selected to be a @spibelt Ambassador for 2018! 🙌🏻😆 After my #T1D diagnosis, running became a challenge. 🏃🏼♀️💉😓 I was discouraged by my blood sugar levels holding me back 📉📈and by the amount of items (meter, lancet, test strips, sugar, energy chews, etc) I had to keep on me at all times. 🤦🏼♀️I didn't own any shorts or leggings with large pockets to fit everything. 🤷🏼♀️ 🤹🏼♀️Then I saw my friend @typeonetypehappy ☀️🐶🌴(also a #spibelt Ambassador) share her running belt, and I instantly knew this would solve my problem! 🤗👍🏻🌈 Running with my belt has given me peace of mind and has saved my life on a few occasions. ☮️🧘🏼♀️One day, I pushed it too far - my body became completely numb and tingly. 😖 I wasn't even running in a straight line anymore. 〰️🏃🏼♀️ I made myself stop on the side of the road and pulled out my diabetes supplies to check my sugar - 41 mg/dL. 🚨📉😩 I pulled out my sugar candies from my belt and ate until I was okay enough to walk back home. 🍬🚶🏼♀️🏡 So thank you Gretchen for helping me and Spibelt for creating the perfect belt to keep me running! 💙👟✨ #freetobe
My New Years Resolution is to travel more. ✈️🚙 To get outside of Los Angeles at least once a month. ☀️🎒As I enter the last year of my 20's, I realize how little I've seen of the world. 🌎🗽🏜🗿This year, I decided to just go for it! I’ve let too many “What ifs” stop me. What if I get sick? 🌡🙊What if I forget my #T1D supplies? 💉🆘 What if no one can come? 😟 What if it’s too expensive? 💸💳 Those “What if” questions can stop you from doing a lot of things in life. 🛑🙅🏼♀️Not this year!🙌🏻 My January Destination: Portland, Oregon. 🌲🌧🏔 I'm a huge fan of this city! 💚 It has so much to offer: ☕️coffee, 🍺micro breweries, 🏕hiking, 💦🌈waterfalls, and 🍩doughnuts! Check out my blog post for my Top 8 Experiences in Portland!⭐️Link in Bio!
One of my goals for 2018 is to read ATLEAST 1 book a month. 📖🗓🏆I usually read before bed. 🛌It helps me relax and sleep better. 😴I have so many unread books right now and I just bought 2 more at my favorite bookstore @powellsbooks in Portland! 📚It is the largest new and used bookstore in the world! 🌎🤓💁🏼♀️Currently Reading: #CapitalGaines by @chipgaines 💙 #magicofstorytelling

✈️Made it to my adorable #Airbnb in Portland for the next 4 days! 🏡 I absolutely love this city! 💙 I’ve been here 4 times now and can’t stop coming back!! 🏙🏔 Even the rainy weather is refreshing.🌲☔️ @myabetic sent me up to work with our product photographer @aaronleephoto . 📷 We are launching some new products/colors soon! ✨Stay tuned for a sneak peek on #myabetic stories this Tuesday! 🙌🏻😆
Finally got my Drop Hat for Christmas! 🎁🙌🏻 I couldn’t wait to rock it. 💁🏼♀️I hope some random person stops me to ask what it means or helps me connect with other people touched by Type 1 Diabetes. 💉💙#TheDropSpotted Check out my ✨New Blog Post✨ about all things @beyondtype1 (#bt1snailmail , BT1 App, #BikeBeyond and where to buy your own Drop Hat)! 💛🖤 Link in bio!
