Like many people – women in particular – I find myself constantly challenged to maintain balance amidst the chaos of everyday life.  I used to think of it as a struggle for balance, but now I see it as choosing balance.  Every day I have the choice to respond to every single outside source (emails, phone calls, etc) without giving any thought to my own needs, or I can choose to balance my life by including activities and people that make me feel good so that I can lead a happy, productive life.  It’s my hope that this blog will encourage others to choose balance over chaos and I’d love to hear how you’re incorporating balance into your life!

I’m the founder and director of Daisy’s Place Retriever Rescue ( ) and I’m an artist and jewelry designer ( ) – I also wear many other ‘hats’ including wife, dog/cat mom, daughter, friend and aunt, just to name a few!

I hope you’ll join me on this journey, I’m sure the road will take many turns along the way, but I do believe that it’s possible to choose the path of balance and ultimately live a more joyful life!



Me and my girls, Magnolia, Poppy and Daisy
