The Lucky Lass

My name is Beth, but I call myself the lucky lass because I think I’m a very lucky girl.  I am now 30ish years old, and decided to blog a little bit about my life, my passions and interests, and my inspirations.

I was born with Cystic Fibrosis, but I have a somewhat mild case.  I have been hospitalized twice three times in my adult life, and the first time I was across the street from Bruce Willis every day!

I hope that anyone who decides to read or follow this blog will feel hope in their own life that you can do it.  It being your hopes and dreams, or the ability to feel like you have say in your own life and how you live it, or just have the energy to get through the day.

I was fortunate to grow up in a very loving and supportive family, where priority was placed on being able to take care of yourself.  I felt I was in a unique position, having a chronic illness but knowing and seeing others who were far worse than myself.  I became introspective, and it gave me the strength and knowledge to know that we are all born with problems.  Some of them are genetic, some are not.  Even though I was born with a body that is more difficult to take care of, I still need to do the best job I can to be as healthy as I can.  Some days it is easier than others, but I try to not feel sorry for myself.

So, some other interesting little tidbits about me:

I loved to watch home shows growing up (remember Home Time and This Old House?), and I still do!  Although the glitz and glamor of HGTV is far more appealing now.

I have one (pretty awesome) husband and two (cute but huge) cats.  We live in a beautiful house in Richmond, Virginia that we are in love with.  It has a beautiful garden and is perfectly laid out for our needs.

I LOVE my (day) job.  I am an art conservator, and I have worked on a lot of amazing pieces.  I may or may not lecture people about conservation vs. restoration on this blog.

I’m not really sure what else people may want to know (if they don’t know me already).

So!  I hope you enjoy what I have to offer on The Lucky Lass!
