So a few weeks ago, I received an email from my friend and fellow PWD Dave Nevins requesting my address. if you don't know Dave, he's quite the adventurer and extreme sports dude. He's had Type 1 for over 30 years and Dave refuses to let the D stop him from doing ANYTHING! He's all about NO LIMITS when it comes to life with D and sports. You can read more about him HERE.
Anyhow, Dave and I email one another, read each others blogs and are Facebook friends.
So when he emailed me requesting my address because he wanted to send me something he came across because it reminded him of me, I was intregued. So me being me (and him being him,) I gave him my address~
Cut to a few weeks later when I received this in the mail.
How awesome is this?!
We all know my affinity for being a Pirate Chicklet since the whole 1 in a million episode~
