ADDIE'S ROAD-TRIP

On September 1st, 2014 I will be embarking on the adventure of my dreams: A road-trip across The United States of America stopping in every state along the way. I am already SO grateful for this opportunity & I will be SO grateful to those who choose to support me (in any way they can!)

A bit more:
The fact that I have cystic fibrosis is usually the last thing my friends learn about me. That's not because I'm ashamed or because it's a secret or because I'm not sick, I just don't think it's the most important thing to know about me. If you asked my friends, they'd say they first learned that I love to laugh, I love to eat, and I love adventure before they learned that I have a genetic disease. But the truth is, just as sure as I was born with the need for adventure in my bones, I was born with CF in my genes. And as much as CF is a part of my physical self, adventure is my whole soul; I need it just as much as I need air in my lungs.

Sometimes when I was younger, my need for constant excitement & adrenaline would turn out to be a bad thing; I'd end up sick or worn out & it'd seem like the adventure wasn't worth the price. As I've grown, I've learned that my health comes first. When you take care of yourself first, you feel better and have the energy to do the things you want! (Thanks mom; I finally figured it out.) I want to show others (not only those with CF, but all people) that you can have both-- that you can have a sickness, or a certain hardship, or even a disease and still live your life with happiness & joy in your heart. It's all about balance.

I'm going to road trip across The Land That I Love stopping in every state along the way. I'm going to laugh, and eat, and adventure, and breathe. I'll take my enzymes and do my treatments, and I'll see my country. Because I want to and because I can. I'll sit in the driver's seat with my adventurous soul & CF will sit right next to me in the passenger seat. I'll press the gas pedal & CF will come along for the ride, never slowing me down but instead motivating me to keep driving forward.

Come along for the journey. It's gunna be rad!

The crazy in me recognizes and honors the crazy in you!

The previous amount would only purchase 458.7 tacos. An unforgivable oversight. This has now been corrected.

Assuming Google's price information is correct and a soft taco costs $1.09, this should buy you exactly 500 soft tacos. Please, for the love of Pete, don't eat them all in one sitting.
