On Sunday, April 10th, I celebrated my 1-year Diaversary at 30 years young.

July will always be an important month for me. On Monday, July 6th 2015, I celebrated my 6-year diaversary (AKA diabetic anniversary!). “Celebrated” is a strong word too; an evening workout class, Haggen’s salad-sampler, and some Monday night Bachelorette is my perfect kind of celebration these days. ; ) For my first few diaversaries, I treated myself to something special like a new Michael...
