"Fighting Back with Fat"

This past weekend, we experienced our first walk for epilepsy. It was both emotional and inspirational - a day that I was humbled and grateful for where we've been and how far we've come! "Fighting Back with Fat" raised over $3,500 and we had 36 walkers on our team alone!

The stars of our team: Noah and Landon

Each step reminded me of our journey. A journey that has come with it share of battles, heartache, and tears. However, it's come with an overwhelming sense of purpose. Our son has taught us how to embrace the small victories and cherish the smallest of moments.  He has brought us to a place of deep reliance on our Father, a place where faith and prayer have sustained us. 




 and silliness filled our day! 

we filled our tummies with a picnic lunch 

 and squeezed in some adventure on the National Mall carousal

A picture perfect day indeed! 

A BIG thank you to everyone that supported Landon and the thousands of people living with epilepsy. We are blessed to have such amazing family and friends. Thank you to our friend Erin for coordinating our team and giving us a chance to bring awareness to the diet that has changed our life! You have inspired me along this keto journey and I am grateful for all of your wisdom and encouragement!
