The Awesome Things I’ve Done Because of Diabetes!

The Awesome Things I’ve Done Because of Diabetes
D-Blog Week 2011 Day #5
Meeting AWESOME people that are just like me has to be number one.  Shout out to the D-Peeps!  I LOVE meeting each and every one of you!!!
Riding in Tour de Cure on my Birthday to Accept Diabetes…and being included in a magazine because of it – ROCKED.  

Not only did I ride, and have a kick ass time, but I wrote an article about my experience called Tour of Acceptance…that was featured in DIABETIC LIVING MAGAZINE!!!  *Insert teenage girl scream here*. 
The whole experience was one that I’ll never forget.  An amazing editor at the magazine surprised me by asking if I would be photographed at my next event, which was the “Step Out” Walk for diabetes along with my husband and sister.  Um, YES!!! 
A make-up artist came to my house, a photography team met me at the walk, and I got to sparkle for a day.  The photo shoot lasted about half the day, and I never felt stronger.  As we fell asleep that night, Hubby told me how amazing he thought I was.  It was one of the best days of my life. 
P.S. You can see the article and photos in the SPRING issue of Diabetic Living, or on their website link I have below.  YAY! J
