Meet Sugar Magnolia


Welcome to my blog, my cozy little corner of the internet! I am a 41 year old mother of two wonderful children. My son, D, is 7 years old and is going into 2nd grade. My daughter, A, is 5 years old and is going into her first year (of a two-year) kindergarten. A was born with a ton of medical issues, which I have summarized here. I write a lot about parenting issues, not only as they relate to my daughter's special medical needs but the challenges and joys of parenting in general. My husband, J, has Young-Onset Parkinson's Disease, and sometimes I write about that as well.

I am also a blossoming athlete. I have become a runner, and now a triathete. I have completed many half marathons and triathlons, and write about my training. I also write a recap after each race. This is not one of those blogs where I write about each workout that I do. Rather, I write about issues as they come up for me, whether they be challenges, goals, or realizations.

In my spare time, I love to cook, and am always looking for new vegetarian recipes to try. I also enjoy reading, listening to music, an will watch the occasional TV show. Thank you for reading my blog!
