Lifestyle Travel Vision


August 2, 2019
Me from the back in an infinity pool looking out to the sea in Croatia. I have my hair down and a neon green bikini on.

This picture was taken last August in Croatia. I felt like my life was very surreal at this point after my Stargardts diagnosis. I felt pretty lost to be honest and panicked that I needed to see more and experience more of this world that we live in, before my eyesight declined. In hindsight, I would love to see more beautiful places and travelling does make me happy, but I get just as much joy at home daily watching my beautiful boys grow.

It has taken me a lot of time to realise that there is joy in every day, whether it be at home or somewhere else. We don’t have to just look forward to experiencing the big things, but make sure we find some joy in all of the little things we do too, after all it’s the little things that make the biggest difference x

    Katie, I recall that you went to that appointment alone. These things throw us for a loop, and it takes awhile to get oriented again. Moms are the glue that binds the family, and your priorities are most certainly in order.

      Yes I went alone George, not having any clue that I would be told I have a problem with my eyes. Thank you for your lovely words as always, I really appreciate them x

    Very inspirational and moving. I’m sorry about your diagnoses, I can’t begin to imagine how hard that must be. But you have the strength and willingness to keep going. There is beauty in everything, even waking up every day is a beautiful thing.
