June 13, 2012 started out like any morning would. I had been ignored my
alarm to get up so I could actually put my makeup on BEFORE I got to
work. Gregory had me attacking me all morning and I just wanted five
more minutes to sleep. Finally, after realizing I should have left my
house 10 minutes before, I grabbed some clothes, slipped on my new TOMs
and grabbed my makeup bag. I ran outside to my car and started to leave
my driveway. The annoying beeping coming from my Blazer was driving me
nuts, so I put my seatbelt on to make it stop and sped to work. Not even
15 minutes after leaving my house, I swerved and lost control of my
blazer. My blazer rolled twice, stopping on it's top + leaving me
trapped inside. I remember saying out loud "You have to be strong + get
through this". Finally, after what seemed like forever a man stopped and
from there it's all a blur. The impact broke my back, fractured my scapula and my lung collapsed. I was paralyzed from the hips down instantly. Today is the day that my life changed forever.
Instead of being sad, today I want to celebrate life. I want to celebrate my second chance and all the amazing things I have going for me.The last year was definitely the hardest year of my life + I'm so thankful for all of you who have stood beside me + supported me. It's hard not to look back and not to cry, but I don't want to see today as a bad day or to be sad. I want to be thankful + I want to celebrate what I do have. A few of my blogging friends have teamed up with me to giveaway a 30$ Amazon gift card for you so that you can celebrate with me. If I were you, I'd totally save that baby and purchase a pretty little FujiFilm Instax Mini 8. That's just me, you're free to use it as you please. We are also giving away a $30 gift card to AHSouthernDesigns. This Etsy shop has the cutest things in it + I mentioned it a while back on my TiLT post. There will be two winners.
