a little about me….


Hi!  I’m PattyAnn, the author of this here blog, and I’m so happy that you decided to stop by!

Let me tell you a little bit about myself….

I am a wife, mom, and lover of all things chocolate.

Life has not at all turned out the way I dreamed it would.

I have been to hell and back in the past five years; I’ve experienced the loss of my dad and my oldest daughter, all within a three-month time span. and let me tell you, it sucks.

Let me explain….I lost my dad to early-onset Alzheimers.  He was diagnosed at the young age of 53, and he died nine years later, at the age of 62.  Walking through Alzheimers with my dad was horrible.  It’s a nasty and devastating disease; one that I wouldn’t wish on anybody.

and my oldest daughter….well, we didn’t lose her to a physical death; however, the day she walked out of our lives, a part of me died. And I’ve never been the same.

Blogging for me is a way to share my story, in hopes that somehow, someone reading will be helped through what I’ve walked through, and all that I’ve learned along the way.

I am real and raw in my writing, and I speak from my heart.

I do believe that I have a story to share, and if only one person is helped or encouraged through my writing, then all of my pain and sorrow was not in vain.

I would love to hear from you; if you have any feedback or thoughts on what you’ve read here on my blog, you can contact me at anniekaye16@gmail.com.

Thanks for stopping by!
