This life quote is by far one of my favourites since I've been in remission from acute Leukaemia because it really sums up the journey I've been on.

On her blog ‘Becoming a Butterfly in remission’, Anna talks about her inspirational life journey so far, her thoughts on being a busy working mum and her creative pleasures.
Anna and I connected over Twitter, we shared stories of our personal experiences with cancer and discussed our creative lives. I knew she had to appear on my blog so I persuaded her to do so.
