Love Courage Strength… Hope…
Hi There! My name is Annie,
I am a busy mother of 2 handsome men Brandon and James, 1 beautiful daughter Jillian, GrAnnie to little Ava and Brandon Jr. (jun jun), and wife to my handsome husband Steve.
We live in Castro Valley, California where I grew up…sharing our home with our fur family…feisty pussy Sugar, big boy Zack, his sister Zane and little old lady Zoe, along with our German Shepard Gus whom we found on Rescueme.org in February 2016 and impulsively drove to southern California on Superbowl Sunday to adopt him. It took us 11 hours total to make it to our destination and we are all so very thankful every day we have him.
I come from a very large family. I am an only child, but the middle child of a blended family.
I live life day by day doing what I love…and loving what I do… after years and years in the Corporate environment working long hours in a high-pressure atmosphere as a Financial Analyst, I decided to take a leap of faith at the age of 48 to become a Massage Therapist and Energy Healer to give back to those suffering through cancer treatment and our surviving hero’s.
Each year during the salmon season when our family owned shop Little Rays Tackle Box located in Klamath, Ca opens for the season during the week of July 4th, I design and sell sports apparel. Also on a smaller scale, I bring out the creative side of me by Fiber crafting clothing and accessories for my Etsy Shop at ChewsyByDesign and design Crochet Patterns for my second Etsy Shop AChewsy1 on the side.
During all of this… when I am free which is not often…my fondest days are spending time with my family and loved ones in my happy place on the Klamath River in upper Northern California fishing for Salmon and Steelhead. I also love Photography, writing, blogging, travelling the local trails hiking or on our bikes, having a lazy Sunday afternoon making homemade chicken soup while sipping a glass of wine, or hanging out with my Mr. Gus who is nothing short of a small horse and a hand full of energy!
When you visit me here again on my blog, you will find me sharing my ongoing battle as a survivor of late-stage Breast Cancer, happy and sad thoughts… moments of calm and daily challenges in my life and our families lives and somewhere in between in those beautifully enlightened moments of clarity when something fantastic has come to mind or is about to happen. Please enjoy and thank you for stopping by!
May Spirit bring you happiness and health in your days ahead.
