About

I'm Tannsy and this is my new account. Click here to find out what happened to my old one. (Journal entry is friends only)


User ImageI'm a twenty-nine year old woman from the Ohio River Valley area. I'm currently a teacher and a musician. I love flowers, and my favorite flower of all time are sunflowers. That might be a little surprising considering my username is Tannsy (like tansy). I love sunflowers though because they're tall and majestic, and even in the hardest rain, the darkest night, and the fiercest wind they stand strong and bright. I like to think that's how I am. My goal in life is to be a wife and mother, and one of the hardest things I've ever had to go through was giving birth to our stillborn son, Joshua Ryan, on May 30, 2007. I will always wonder who he would have been.

I met my husband, James, when I was thirteen and we've been together since August 2003, almost fifteen years now! It's so hard to believe it's been that long. He was diagnosed with aplastic anemia and then leukemia in January 2009, relapsing again in Spring 2013, and each time we fought it together. We eloped on November 5, 2013, after being engaged for several years and pushing our wedding back twice. Our spur of the moment wedding was an exact week before he received his bone marrow transplant. Getting married and him getting his transplant gave us hope and a future that at one point we never felt was possible. At one point we moved to New York while he participated in a clinical trial that saved his life, but we've finally returned home and he is doing well! Teaching, coaching, athletic directing and enjoying his second chance at life. Since then we've renewed our wedding vows, bought land to build a house, and are expecting our rainbow baby! James is a Gaian as well. His username is Enfynity. You should totally check him out, he's a pretty cool guy, even if his profile is really outdated! (And by outdated, I mean by 8+ years).

I used to use this account primarily for changing avatars (I never change my main account and now it looks like I'll never change this account either) and for playing zOMG. I was really bummed when Gaia took zOMG down, because while I did like the game, I also used it as an imaging tool. For a long time, I kept my avatar really ugly wearing peasant clothes, ugly green starter hair and evil red eyes. That avatar represented chemo and the animated in zOMG are leukemia blasts. Chemo isn't pretty and neither was that avi, but both still kill. Now that the game is back and things are better in my personal life, I'm starting to remember how fun the game was on another level. smile

Where flowers bloom, so does hope.

Flowers are the only thing God forgot to put a soul into.
