Greetings!  My name is Tracey and I am a 40-something wife, mother, business owner, artist, and college instructor, among other things. I am also a survivor of Late Disseminated Lyme Disease (Chronic Lyme) and several co-infections including Ehrlichiosis, Bartonella, and Babesia.  I choose not to let these infections define me, however, it is a large part of my "new" life since being diagnosed in the summer of 2014. 

I live on a small farm in rural Harford County, Maryland with my husband, four children, a horse, 2 cats, and a dog.  My kids range in age from 21 years to 10 years old. My two oldest children have graduated high school and are pursuing university and trade school training. My two youngest, who are twins (a boy and a girl), are currently in 5th grade! I enjoy reading, writing, photography, art, quilting, and organic gardening.

I know your time is valuable and I am honored that you took a minute to stop in.
Please feel free to drop me a line using the email section of my blog...I'd love to hear from you!
