The Good Stuff

Whenever I introduce myself to someone new, or need to give a "fun fact" about myself, it's always that I have diabetes.  You already know that, so what else.  

I love my family.
My two biggest supporters
The Boisvert women at my uncle's wedding in 2003
Grammy & Grampa Dea with 3 of their grandchildren and their great-grandchild
Easter 2001
Disney World 1999-2000
Eighth Grade Graduation with Mom, Dad & Rags
No, he's not a dia-dog, but he's my boy
Overcoming my fear of heights 

I have the best friends in the world.
Meghan (my longest dia-buddy) & I at Oktoberfest in Boston
Paige & I at a Red Sox game
me & Rebel at Pops Goes the Fourth! (21 year diabetes anniversary)
My two best dia-buddies
Caty & me in Puerto Rico
Willet & me on my 23rd birthday
NYE with the family at Sunday River (in high school)
These two make for great dia-buddy support (especially when we're together)

I love to ski (it's the only thing I've been doing longer than I've had diabetes).
Mont Tremblant
I love coffee.  That is an understatement. 

I am a synchronized swimmer.

I love to play tennis.

I decided to run a 10 mile race in 2009 for the chance at winning a contest to donate $1000 to a diabetes group.

I have a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Plymouth State University, and now I'm a nanny.

I like to scrapbook (this is part of one I made for my mother)

I grew up in NH, I now live in Boston, but a piece of my heart lives in Oregon.

I love country music.

I love football, and I never really had a choice in the matter. 

I love to take the time to stop and smell the roses.

  1. Hi. I saw your comment on six to me and wanted to
    pass this website along. I'm not diabetic but my
    son is. Huge athlete, and we have very good luck
    w/ everyday "packs" and the athletic ones. We
    buy them at They
    even have holders for between the cleavage. :-) Not something my son will find useful. Hope this
    never posted to you and wasn't sure about the
