My Journey

Never did I EVER imagine in a million years I'd get to this point in my life.


I grew up in a small town in North Carolina with my loving family. My childhood was a good one which I'm incredibly thankful for. My journey with alcohol started when I was in High School. There was literally nothing for us teenagers to do on the weekends so we'd meet up at the "pecan trees" or "the field" and would drink until our curfew. At the young age of 15, I started drinking, experimenting and

learned many, MANY life lessons along the way.

It was a few years ago when I became "sober curious", and I FINALLY decided at the age of 44, on January 10, 2021 that NOW is the time! This was the first day of the rest of my life. I want to change my life starting NOW...one day at a time and finally get FREE OF ALCOHOL and focus on healthy living! I created this blog to hold

myself accountable and to write about my journey.

I am a Jesus loving southern girl that loves my family unconditionally. I have an amazing supportive husband, a beautiful firecracker 12 year old daughter, and a gentle giant 10 year old son. They are my WHY.

I have to do this for not only myself, but for them!

I'm super excited about this new adventure and I pray this journey of mine is one that inspires many to do the same.
