See that girl way up there on the rock climbing wall? That’s me!
That may not seem like a big deal for some of you climbing enthusiasts out there. But in case you didn’t know: I have 6 screws, 4 rods, and 2 spacers in my back. My spine is fused at two levels. And after my back surgery in May 2016, it was a few weeks before I could even walk a block.
So, yeah. Going rock climbing is a pretty huge accomplishment for me.
So huge, in fact, that I think a little celebration is in order. I was thinking about inviting everyone over for a celebratory BBQ, but where would we park? Also I don’t cook.
So how about a little giveaway instead? I’m giving away a $25 Amazon gift card because I had a great day, and I want to make someone else’s day great too. Just follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter to enter, and I’ll select a winner at random on 7/21/17.
Oh, and I am really trying to grow my YouTube channel, so your likes & follows there are EXTRA appreciated (and worth extra entries). I vlog about living & adventuring with a fused spine. But I think you’ll find my content relatable even if you don’t have a hardware store in your back. After all, every single one of us has to push through obstacles in order to achieve our dreams and be our best selves.
Thank you for your support, and thanks for celebrating this victory with me! Good luck!

p.s. Vic wrote a post about rock climbing, and I hope to have it up next week – just as soon as I’m done editing the crap out of it, because that’s how I roll. (Sorry, honey.)
