A Butterfly Life started out as a journey through my life. Through the different transformations that I have experienced. Deaths, marriages, births, domestic abuse, rape, divorce, bankruptcy, mental illness, suicide, house fire, abandonment, true love, self love, spirituality, and so many more. The truth is though that the initial transformation may be mine, it still impacts so many others. This blog is to explore my transformation and the impacts my journey has has on those in my world. Join me in the stories that I will share if you are interested.

Embracing the challenge,
