My recovery would not be what it is without my family.
My daughter Andie took a gorgeous cruise with her great Aunt Kathy and Uncle Don! She swam with the dolphins, snorkeled, zip-lined and more.
Pablo took a soccer trip down to Miami and stayed with our graduate school friend, Johnny Warner.
Tomas continues to play hard on the soccer field on Pope HS Varsity with a rockin’ mane!
And here at the Brooks-Crump household, Spring would not be spring without someone doing the Mexican eggs! This year, I emptied, dried and colored them, marble style, and stuffed them with truffles!
So all this is what rockin’ my freakin’ life looks like to me today: a crazy, learning, loving, laughing, crying, expanding, creating, dancing, and resting life filled with people like you and my family! #lovemyrecovery!
Did I tell you today that I LOVE You, I do!!
