About Me

Hans was a busy, happy, sweet and fearless three year old when he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. He fought his disease like a "gladiator" for nearly 6 years. Hans was an animal lover to his core. He was 'guarded' at home by his three cats, Black, Orange and Cotton. He also had his Golden Retriever, Honey, to keep him company. Hans enjoyed swimming, biking, gardening, grilling (he had his very own grill!), horseback riding, playing video games, building Legos, and flipping between Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Animal Planet. Hans loved all members of his family and he was a loyal friend. He had to go through a lot of treatment in his life. But Hans powered through it. His attitude was let's get this done! His motivation was always to get back home, to his family, pets, favorite foods and pool.

The Camino de Santiago

I haven't posted about it here yet somehow but for the past two summers Kevin and Elle and I have hiked the Camino de Santiago - a 500 mile pilgrimage, also known as The Way of Saint James, across northern Spain.  Some say it has a special energy as it follows directly under the Milky Way.  I can certainly say I felt Hans presence there more keenly than anywhere else.  I will have to write more about that experience!

But, I thought I'd share that I typed up a general tip book encouraging others to get out and hike the Camino.  I self-published it on Amazon.com this week!  It was an exciting process, but definitely a learning curve. I thought I'd share the link here:

All You Really Need to Know to Hike the Camino de Santiago:  Tips to Help you Plan For, Prepare For, and Hike Your First Camino  by Lara Cady Weberling  It's available on Amazon Kindle (there is a Kindle app if you don't own a Kindle...)

Hans was with us every step of The Way.
