I live in a suburb of the East San Francisco Bay Area with my husband, my 5 year old son and a very large menagerie of rescued animals on 2.7 acres. I find joy in balancing my human and animal family with my other passions in life. Two of these are crafting (anything really, but primarily scrapbooking, quilting and stamping)and triathlon. I've finished 6 Ironman triathlons, including Hawaii in 2009 and am always training for SOMETHING. I also run a high volume spay/neuter program for feral cats with large chunks of my free time.
