In her past lives, A'Driane (friends and family call her 'Addye'-you can too!) was a Texas born military brat & junior dog handler with dreams of winning Best in Show at Westminster, a police officer in the United States Air Force, and a single mother. (She was also the only kid in 5th grade singing "Get Off," by Prince).
Nowadays she's a boy mom of 3, wife to a nerdy futurist, and a color addict who gets a rush from putting paint to canvas. A PPD & PPA survivor, she now strives to find the beauty in living despite the chaos of Bipolar Disorder Type II & OCD. An ardent believer in the power of transparency and vulnerability, she owns her story by writing (and dancing) it all out on her blog, Butterfly Confessions. She survives the joys and madness with a carefully constructed cocktail of Lamictal, Twitter, Prince, and Jesus.
