The world is full of adventure.  Perhaps you have a chronic illness, like me, and your days of adventuring might be on pause at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t find another to follow along with and enjoy! This Spring/Summer I followed a fun and unique adventure across America and I thought I would share my favorite points with y’all. Julian Redman, who went to the same high school as me, rode his custom-made […]

Well since my brother and I each wrote up a little ABC’s of hockey, my brother challenged my mom to write one up from the hockey mom point of view.  In case you missed ours, here are the links to mine and his. Also, side note, this list is really basically my childhood summed up.  It’s great.  Enjoy! ABC’s of Hockey By: Dannell Rasmussen A- Adversity: All players face it; watch a post game interview […]

Hockey, the Other Best Medicine / Smile Makers

Just leave it to my brother to show me up with his creativity and wit.  You might remember my post the ABC’s of Hockey I recently made.  I posted it and my mom replied and told me it was ‘cute and clever’.  I told her to just wait until she sees her son’s responses. Just a little backstory on my childhood.  I danced through mine while my brother skated through his.  He played hockey for several […]

Welcome to Spring.  I’m pretty glad to see it.  Look, don’t get me wrong; I LOVE winter, but even I thought it was a long winter. **Sidenote: what do you call these purple wild flowers?  Where I grew up they were always called Purple Eyed Grass, but my husband grew up knowing them as Soldier’s Spears.** I wanted to switch up the design of my blog a bit.  (Note: I don’t make money blogging, it’s […]

I usually receive a bit of Christmas cash and I’m pretty careful about what I want to spend it on.  It’s a big deal because it’s free money and I don’t wanna spend it on something stupid. Last night I was laying in bed and looking on the internet.  By the way, when I say last night it could have been 3 AM, 730 AM, 4 PM yesterday… I never really know for sure. Anyways, […]

Smile Makers / Uncategorized

I know that everyone is particular about their favorite holiday movies.  I enjoy my brother and his wife’s organization the most though.  They have a master list of Christmas movies and episodes that they like to watch each year.  That way whenever there’s a quiet evening they can throw in one of their favorites to watch. I like their list especially because they include TV show episodes too, which sometimes are more favorite to me […]

When Plans Turn to Camping

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Smile Makers

Being sick sucks.  It’s not fun when plans don’t work out and become impossible due to health circumstances.  I’m a 30-year-old grown up and I still get upset when I can’t do something that I was looking forward to due to my body being dramatic.  I’ve found that is one of the best ways to explain it, by the way. Today I’m not talking about me though.  I’m talking about my bud Eli.  You remember him […]
