Identity Crisis Averted…for now.


Change is inevitable.  Change inspires growth…at least that’s what is supposed to happen right? But what if everything you’ve known is changing? I’ve spent the last 25 years serving others…being a military wife, a mom, a grandmother, and a business owner.

So many changes have happened around me, within me, and because of me. Somewhere along the way I’ve lost MY identity. And it’s really knocked my equilibrium out of whack!  Not the best scenario for somebody desperately trying to live a life of balance. Isn’t that what everyone strives to achieve?

I didn’t start this blog in order to find balance. I started it because I’m LOST! Crazy, dramatic, chaotic…to say the least. I’m an almost 50 year old unorganized control freak in the midst of rediscovery and for the first time I really have time to evaluate MY life.

I’m not sure I like it.

I won’t lie.

It’s eye opening.

BUT there are so many things that I LOVE! I am very passionate (sometimes to be confused with controlling) about life in general. I love MY life. I am so VERY blessed. I have a GREAT life…past, present, and hopefully future. I’ve been married going on 25 years to a wonderful man…my American soldier. It hasn’t always been peachy. We’ve been through it all but always come out on the other side stronger.

I have 4 children and 2 beautiful grandsons. Our kids tend to open up our minds. On the outside I’m pretty conservative, but my headspace is a little more on the bohemian side thanks to them.  It’s led me to becoming more adventurous and ready to open my heart and mind to all kinds of possibilities.

I’m a classically trained pastry chef but really I just LOVE to bake! Baking makes me happy. Baking makes everyone happy.  I’m a total foodie that loves to cook but rarely uses recipes. What’s the fun in that? I am also a certified personal trainer with a passion for helping others reach their fitness goals and becoming a better version of themselves. Mostly I love being with my family.

That’s me. And that’s why.

BTW…contrary to popular belief…I’m not bossy.

I’m the boss!

Just sayin’!

So…WELCOME! Here’s to rediscovery, reinventing, and new adventures!
