Water bus passes and new friends

It’s more fun to take the bus in Venice, because it’s actually a boat (called the Vaporetto). Since they’re used by locals and tourists, it can be very crowded (and therefore not always so fun, or even safe for those with mobility issues). But today we got on our first Vaporetto of this trip, and…

We’re going back!

It’s official! We’re going back to our beloved Venice, Italy! And we leave next week! Mama and I have been researching and planning for the last few weeks, but essentially we’ve been packing on faith. We didn’t have flights or an apartment secured until this past week, but we are absolutely thrilled that it’s now…

Lucky for us, their kind and gorgeous mother brought us plates of food from the party. We are grateful to have such loving neighbors! And…

Very much on time

Today’s #OneGoodThing is this beautiful, poignant meme, posted by my friend Leslie, with whom I went to journalism school. She shared these words along with some of her own: “Step away and hit the pause button. You are in your own timezone. You don’t need to keep up with everyone else. Do you.” I love seeing my…

Great new chiropractor

Today’s #OneGoodThing was finding a fantastic new chiropractor! Both Mama and I loved Dr. Christina Dumbadse’s approach and adjustment style. Mama’s range of motion improved after one adjustment. I can’t wait for my appointment next week! Special thanks to our awesome neighbor and friend, Ti, who recommended this chiropractic office. Day 228 of 365. And Day 959 in a…

Not one dose missed

Giving myself an injection every day is still one of the most difficult parts of my day. I’ve learned that a lifelong needle phobia doesn’t disappear just because you’re forced to confront it daily. And so, late last year, it became easy to procrastinate and occasionally skip. But I could feel the difference as my…
