Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I’m Shaye and if you want to pull up a cushion I would be glad to tell you my tale. I’m a 32-year-old  single Mommy of 2 amazing kiddos and I live in Lancaster Pennsylvania. I am a blogger (obviously), a photographer, an author, an editor and I can sing a mean tune or two at karaoke. I am a student working on my bachelor’s degree while on disability because I have numerous medical issues. And all of that is not why or how you found me.

You found me because of another blog, a friend, a link or something that may have sent you in my direction and that’s amazing!!! I started this blog to talk to you(and myself) about my journey in finding my sparkle and taking it back into my life.

This blog is going to be dedicated to the journey from past to present on everything from my binge eating disorder, my struggle with weight since I was a teenager, my journey through gastric band surgery (and it’s removal) and my present progress in the program to getting a gastric sleeve.

There may be some words you don’t understand. There may be some topics you are uncomfortable with. There may be some questions that you have. I promise I will try to answer all of them. All of this has been a struggle my entire life, and will continue to be one as time goes on. You cannot succeed unless you hold your nose, jump in and see what happens.

If you need a hand to hold, I am here =^)
