Last, a sad goodbye to our friend and fellow OG mom blogger, Anissa Mayhew. They broke the mold with her, that’s for sure. You can read some amazing tributes to her on her Facebook legacy page, but she can probably best be summed up by her own description of herself below an old pic on Free Anissa:
This was me before I got married, had three kids, had a stroke, had a toddler with cancer, started a blog, then had more strokes, and became inspirational. You may not be able to tell from there, but I am totally rolling my eyes.
I use a wheelchair, I write one-handed, I have interesting vision issues and my hearing problems that are pretty not-dull. The entire right side of my body is paralyzed, but my boobs are still fantastic!
RIP, mama. We won’t call you inspirational because you haaaated that. But the our lives are better for having had you in it.
