Intro blog

Hi & welcome to my blog.  I have been wanting to do this whole blog thing and finally took the leap.  Who knows how far I will go with this, but if you are reading this, thank you for taking the time to visit.  My name is Jeannine, I live in a town about 25 minutes outside of Chicago, I’m married to an awesome guy with no kids and I work in the financial industry.  Before I go any further I want to give you a little insight of who I am, how I write and what to expect here.  I write as if I’m having a conversation, I’m not too worried about grammar and if you are, this isn’t the place for you.  I swear.  I swear A LOT, and I will not filter myself, so, if you have an issue with that, this isn’t the place for you.  I’m a breast cancer survivor & I’m a survivor because of science, so if you believe in snake oil & all the other holistic bullshit, again, not the place for you.  Now that I got that out of the way, we can move on.  I will end up writing a blog about my cancer in a future post, but quickly, I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 36 with no family history.  I started writing after my diagnosis because it made me feel good and was extremely therapeutic.  I also suffer from anxiety & a little bit of OCD which usually comes along with an anxiety diagnosis; throw the cancer in & you have me, a hot mess (not always, but a lot).  Basically, I’m just going to write about what I want with a focus on my cancer, anxiety, family, and a true love of mine…beauty products!!!! Odd combination?  Yep, but it’s my reality, so, lets see where this goes and thanks for taking a ride with me.

Much love!
