I first wrote about my struggle with Health Anxiety and OCD in a blog post back HERE. I want to revisit it today for a few different reasons. First of all, I never want to imply here that my life is perfect or without struggles. I visit blogs to feel empathy and friendship, and I hope that those who read here leave finding the same. I never want anyone to read this little blog and think that I have it all together because Heaven knows, I don't! As a super special person once told me, "Everyone has their own sh**!" Also, I feel very strongly that if sharing my story here can help one person struggling with this or any similar issue, I owe it to that person and to myself to do that. Mental Health concerns should no longer be considered taboo or embarrassing. Nor should they be thought of as a joke, weakness, or character flaw.

The girls and I made a delicious summer supper last night. I picked some Rosemary, Thyme, Dill, and Parsley from our little garden while Peyton prepped the salmon. Madison brushed those beauties with some melted butter, added the chopped herbs, and then a slice of lemon. We popped them in the oven with Madison's seasoned broccoli, and Peyton made some rice in her rice cooker.
And what's a good dinner without a delicious dessert? Peyton made an amazing fresh berry pie with a cinnamon crumb topping that we enjoyed during America's Got Talent. Family dinner around the table followed by dessert around the TV. Retro? Vintage? Perhaps. Perfect? You bet.
