Proud Papa of 3 kiddos... Mad Man of a flowershop in Middle TN. The Language of flowers is powerful schtuff... it's really changed the way I see things. :)
Divorce, death of my beloved mom and grandmother...then becoming the full time single parent of my 3 kids have made the stress eating outta control. My 30's should have been fabulous years...they weren't... a toxic marriage made sure of that. I've medicated with food most of my life..and now is the time to change that. I am determined my 40's will be entirely different. So I am on this journey to get to a healthy weight.. working on me.
