Fun & Wellbeing

I have two wonderful cats that live here with me in Michigan, and the remainder of my family is in northern New York. I enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, horseback riding, and running in my spare time. I manage my own well-being by scheduling time everyday for myself and continuing to practice saying "no!"
