My girls get me. Thank you @kiradele and @emma8jayne for this magnificent surprise in the mail today! I’ve named my cactus Flora and she’ll definitely be appearing on Hugging the Cactus often! πŸŒ΅πŸ’š

I like this picture because 1) there’s a giant Christmas tree in the background, 2) it was taken in Disney and 3) my mom’s face!!!

Today is #WorldDiabetesDay! This is the face and name of a person with type one diabetes. I may look (relatively 😜) normal and healthy, but for the last 20 years, I’ve fought a daily battle against my invisible illness. I’ve lost many hours of sleep and, occasionally, peace of mind due to my diabetes. Countless blood sugar checks, insulin injections, and a determined spirit have kept me alive. Diabetes sucks, but I am grateful for the fact that it has made me stronger as well as connected me with dozens of other incredible people with diabetes. Today I celebrate those individuals and remain hopeful for a cure. This is my #WarriorCall. #WarriorUp

Will I be this excited for the first *real* snowfall of the season? It’s doubtful, but there was something wonderful about Christmas celebrations in 80 degree weather! β˜€οΈπŸŽ„β„οΈ

Breakfast: @knowfoods chocolate chip waffle topped with banana, walnuts, and plenty of sugar free syrup. Best part? No spike after eating - blood sugar went from 76 to 123 over the course of 2 hours. Diabetes win πŸ™ŒπŸ»
