I was widowed on February 15, 2012, when my 44-year-old husband's heart suddenly gave out.  I was 32 at the time, with a 7-month-old baby.  My son, Max, will be 2 in July and he is the most adorable, sweetest toddler imaginable.  We live in Lakeview, with our dog (a boxer named Maddy), my parents (who moved from FL to help me), and their dog (a chocolate lab named Ruby).  I am currently pursuing a Master's in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and somehow I find time to do Crossfit every day, which has been the best type of therapy for me, helping me become stronger physically and mentally.  I'm definitely burning the candle at both ends, but I'm living life to the fullest and appreciating every moment.  I know that JP is looking down on me and is so proud of the strong woman I have become.  And he definitely appreciates the effort that I'm making to raise a Red Sox/Patriots/Bruins/Celtics fan in Chicago...
