I love to hear from you guys, so feel free to shoot me an email at Anissa(@)FreeAnissa(.)com or Tweet me @AnissaMayhew.

I write HERE.  I get to pretend I’m in charge  HERE. I helped create this, I used to write over there, and sometimes write at this place but now? HERE.

This was me before I got married, had three kids, had a stroke, had a toddler with cancer, started a blog, then had more strokes, and became inspirational. You may not be able to tell from there, but I am totally rolling my eyes.

I use a wheelchair, I write one-handed, I have interesting vision issues and my hearing problems that are pretty not-dull. The entire right side of my body is paralyzed, but my boobs are still fantastic!


I also USED to work at Glamour Shots with WAY too much time on my hands!  This? Is me every other day of my life

And now I have a handicap parking pass that makes me super popular at Wal-mart. Don’t be jealous.  If you ask nice I’ll take you with me.

I’m directly related to the production of these three fine beings.




This is Peyton, she’s 9, she sweats awesome from her pores and you can read about her beating cancer over at my first blog Hope4Peyton.



This is Rachael, she’s 11…that gleam in her eye?  Yeah, totally tells you everything you need to know about her…she’ll either take over the world or get famous for a string of robberies at Claire’s Boutique.



My boy child, Nathaniel, is 14, people, you have a few years, but warn your daughters N.O.W.  If there is ever a zombie apocalypse I’m tripping him first, but I’ll miss him a lot.

We currently live on the SW edge of Atlanta and the NW edge of sanity.

It’s good here.
