My name is Samantha, and this is my blog about my life with Marfan Syndrome. I have struggled all my life with all the challenges of Marfan Syndrome. I try not to let it bring me down, and was doing pretty good, until about 2010. That was the year that I had an ascending aortic root replacement, or AAA for short. Ever since then, the weight started creeping on due to medication and lifestyle changes that AAA surgery brings. This is where my journey really begins.

I live in beautiful central Arizona, near Sedona. I am mom to two human kids, four dog kids, two cats, and a turtle. I work full time and grateful to be able to do so. Somewhere in there I try to find time to get outside, walk, craft, shop, and travel.

Thanks for visiting!
