My “mini-me” and me
Born and raised in California, I have called Texas home for over 20 years now. I am married to my best friend and ever patient husband. We have two kids (a son and a daughter) who I adore, two dogs who are a bit crazy, and we love to travel.

I suffer from fibromyalgia, but don’t let it control my life and I try to find natural ways to minimize the flares. I am a bit of a technology nerd. I love to read about leadership, self-improvement, and a good mystery novel (when I can hold a book up!). I am muddling my way through this blogging thing, writing about what inspires me to learn and grow and be a better person, and I hope I can inspire others as well.

“Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.”

~ John Lennon

More about me…

  • I find joy in everyday life: taking pictures, walking the dogs, cooking a good meal, gardening, or discovering a new place we’ve never been before.
  • I believe you should love what you do, smile as much as you can, learn something new every day, and fail forward.
  • I believe attitudes matter, and a positive attitude matters positively.
  • I believe eating dessert first is OK (once in awhile) and life is too short to drink bad coffee.

Adventure awaits. Welcome to my journey.

  1. First things first; your daughter is gorgeous! Second; reading the “more about me” makes me wish we lived next door to each other. I think we’d get along fantastically. I can’t wait to read more of your blog. Along with a spinal cord injury (and complications caused by that) I also have Fibromyalgia and I love reading about how others handle it.
