Goodbye summer.

First off, I apologize for being MIA this month... It's been crazy, unexpected and hard. I finished my chemo on September 7th {for this month} which was a Monday. Then, not even 2 full days later, on Wednesday morning, I woke up covered in hives. Something I've never experienced before. With everything I was going through I ended up in the ER until later that day. Over the next few days it started coming back more and more until Friday morning when I ended up back in the ER because it started traveling into my throat, which is NOT good! Luckily, after that day in the ER it got much better but I had to be careful over the weekend and that whole next week. I honestly wasn't feeling good, had migraines {yes, even more} and just aches & pains throughout my whole body. It wasn't easy and it has been hard even talking about it. 
On the positive side to things I've been able to catch up on all my favorite shows, watch some great movies, do some online shopping and I even finished putting together my new office {pictures coming soon!} It's crazy to think that despite everything that is going on I actually feel emotionally stronger than I've been since everything happened over 3 years ago. I've learned that talking about things and opening up to my family helps more than I ever thought it would, and it is actually ok to do. Some people might wonder why I share so many personal things, but it honestly helps me to talk about everything and open up. With that, thank you to everyone who has been by my side and supporting me through it all! 

Here are a couple pre-pics of my office from Instagram {ashley2bell}:

Have you noticed I like the color pink? ;)
Alright, back to my OSU football game! GO BEAVS!
