Centered in Joy, Grounded in Love, Growing through Challenges, Searching for Beauty, Reveling in Laughter…

Living life the best way I know how, with a song in my heart, a spring in my step and a smile on my face.  I’m the mother of two beautiful daughters, a lifelong Austinite, a Cellist, a Certified Hypnotist, an ordained (non-denominational) Chaplain, a brand-new Blogger, and an Independent Mary Kay Beauty Consultant.  Currently we share our home with 2 cats, 2 ferrets, 2 dogs and several fish (I feel like adding “and a Partridge in a Pear Tree…”).

I’m a walking conundrum, a free-thinker, a radical optimist, a non-conformist who won’t even conform to non-conformity, and probably the person your mother warned you about!  I’m a firm believer in “AND” instead of “OR”, and I’ve been accused of being cynical because I think the glass is simply twice as BIG as it needs to be…  I never take myself too seriously, I have an excellent memory (except when I don’t), and I’ve been told that I have a knack for ruining a perfectly good depression.
