I've been actively involved with the March of Dimes since 2007. March of Dimes is a wonderful organization that helps families who have premature babies. They also provide funding for research to help the quality of life of the premature infants and their families. It's a wonderful organization that I am very passionate about. I worked in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for 3 1/2 years and have witnessed first hand the emotions, struggles and amazing strengths of premature babies and their parents. For a small community Madisonville, KY has an amazing NICU and a great support for March of Dimes. The big fund raiser is the March of Dimes walk, teams raise money all year long to donate on the day of the walk. The amazing thing about the walk is all of the money stays right in the region it is raised in! The team I am a part of is made up of our very own NICU grads and their parents along with the NICU nurses, so we are called The Mighty Tykes :) Our most recent "mini" fundraiser for our team "The Mighty Tykes" was a yard sale. We had a wonderful turnout and raised close to $500!! I want to thank everyone who came out! The next thing we have coming up is a bake sale Friday April 8th at RMC from 10-12! Every penny helps!

The walk is May 14th at the Wellness park by Trover Clinic in Madisonville, KY!
Hello! My name is Tia (my friends call me T). A few things you should know about me: I'm a nurse, runner, wanna be cook, thrift finds lover and insanely in love newlywed. O yeah and I have an awesome cat named Burlington. I've decided to blog about my journey to the "balance" of my life, if the thing called balance is even obtainable (we shall see).
Between staying in touch with my old life and evolving into my new life I am enjoyning every moment, almost :) My goal is to make each day a productive or creative day, whether I knit a hat, go for a run, read a good book, cook a yummy meal, find a pretty thrift treasure, create a new healthy snack the list goes on! I'm looking forward to my journey, I hope you enjoy following me!
