I am a Mom of two (male), wife (to also a male), professional dancer (
penance doing CATS) and singer (which may or may not have included a big hair rock band), city girl(LA is great when not shaking, burning, flooding or rioting), transplant to the country (somewhere), snowboarder (on a good day), traveler (every chance I get), denim lover (actually, obsessed, but I am in denial – see most recent denim review here), teacher (when budget allows), shopper( when budget allows always), writer (wanna be) and loving my new career as Company Manager (which,in typical dancer fashion I literally tripped into) for professional regional theatre. I love to laugh and make others laugh more than almost anything.
When I turned 40…um, a few years ago…I vowed to try something new every year. The year I founded Looking For the Sweet Spot, although not as dramatic as the year I decided to become a snowboarder, felt just as adventurous. The idea being to use the blog as a catalyst to help me actively seek out and write about moments, big or small, that string life together…and just to find a few laughs! Over the years, Looking For the Sweet Spot has morphed into primarily a travel blog – but what better way to seek out “the sweet spot”.
Why the “Sweet Spot”? Let me explain:
In baseball it is when the ball meets the bat in just the right spot to achieve maximum response for the given effort.
In music it is when notes, tone and harmony coalesce to produce the perfect sound.
In life it is when the blending of elements come together to create the optimal situation… laugh, cry or just smile, they are the moments worth remembering and talking about (and, of course, posting on facebook).
The Sweet Spot moments.
I hope you find some here. Thanks for visiting.
