Hey, just wanted to introduce myself. I am 35, newly engaged mother of 2 amazing little men Ashton (9) and Memphis (6). I am a make up artist and hair stylist in WA state, love what I do and LOVE being a Mom!<br><br>
So the short of it is , I have been on a journey with my health for a number of years. In and out of doctors offices and hospitals with 3 cancer scares in the last 12 months. Needless to say I've been re-evaluating things just a little. I really don't eat much meat in general and I have horrible reactions to dairy so I was already mostly plant based, then I stumbled upon the documentary "Forks over Knives" and my life changed. I have since been going through the process of changing over completely to a plant based lifestyle and I have never felt better! Not only is it helping my health it has opened my eyes to helping the world and I am learning far more than I ever expected about what goes into the food that I have been eating most of my life! I'm ready for the change!! I am looking forward to getting to know others here in this community and gathering knowledge to help me further on this journey!<br><br>
Thanks for reading, DeShon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Actually I am. My son keeps saying SNOW SNOW SNOW! But I am liking the crisp cold days. Much better without being soaked every time I walk out the door!

I know last year it was all snowy and white up here >.< I'm glad it's not slippery and wet!
