Hello my darlings and welcome to my lifestyle blog! My name is Kaylee and I am currently 23 years old. I live in a small town in New York and this past October I married my high school sweetheart Tom after being together for 5 years!
We have two amazing fur babies who are our world, Willie and Luna, and everyday with those two is an adventure. I love writing and photography and dream of becoming an author one day. However, my back-up dream is to become a school counselor since I have a strong passion for psychology and helping others. 😀
Throughout my 23 years of life, I have had to deal with a lot of challenges but through those challenges, I have grown stronger and have learned to appreciate the true beauty of life. To give you all a little background, at 13 years old I was diagnosed with severe anxiety and depression after my grandfather passed away. My father left when I was 5 years old and since I did not see him a lot, my grandfather had taken on that father role for me. Losing him broke my heart but through the love and support of my friends and family, I got through the most difficult time of my life. However, the anxiety and depression never left. When I turned 16, I began to have a lot of body pain which led to the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and 5 years later, I would be told I had Rheumatoid Arthritis. Knowing this runs in my family, I had always expected to eventually receive that diagnoses, but even the doctors couldn’t believe it happened that young. Recently however, I went to a new Rheumatologist and was told I do not have Rheumatoid Arthritis but instead have another autoimmune disease, Lupus. This was a complete shock because only one other person in my family has Lupus and it is still something I am struggling to come to terms with. Living with these physical and mental illnesses makes life much harder for me and every day seems like a constant battle. I decided to create this blog in hopes that my experiences, failures, and triumphs can help others out there who are also struggling. It’s a place where I can use my three passions in life to share with all of you my thoughts on life, mental & physical health, wedding planning & marriage, fashion and everything in between in hopes that I can bring joy and/or hope into someone’s life. It’s also a place for me to share my personal thoughts and poetry with all who wishes to read them. I always tell myself that God gave my mind and body these illnesses because he knows I am strong enough to overcome them and will use my story to help others who are struggling. Well this is the platform I chose to begin to share my story and I hope you all enjoy what I have to say. I look forward to traveling this beautiful journey with all of you! ❤
