About Me

I am passionately curious about parenting, kids, pets, animals, education, finances, lifestyles and everything inbetween. As a mom, dog – horse – bird owner I am solution oriented and mission driven to create the best life possible for all our family members. My opinions are bluntly honest and to the point. Information is electic and entertaining, and everything else you find here is engaging and relatable.

My 2 children are my biggest motivator at this stage of my life. To guide them and give them the tools to become confident, productive and upstanding members of society is my everyday focus. My everyday challenge is to shield them from the immoral, unethical and downright destructive influences at a young age, and to properly explain and discourage these very same behaviours as they get older. The biggest accomplishment for me as a parent will be to look back one day and realize that I have raised successful, self sufficient, disciplined and respectful children.

Besides Moi, my Husband and my 2 incredible Children, our family consists of 4 amazing Dogs, 2 beautiful Horses and 2 Cockatiels. Duchess is a rather large Rottweiler girl who thinks she is a lap dog. Sadie, a cute mix we adopted from a rescue organization, who fiercely defends her bones. Ace, a little papillon, who thinks he is a big dog, and Lucky, who we took home from running wild on the farm. Our horses names are Nacho and Sterx. Nacho is a very curious Oldenburg who is smart as a whip and will be well over 18hh when fully grown. Sterx is our super smart Russian Ex-Circus Horse who was adopted out of a sad situation. He still knows some of his tricks and is blind in one eye. They are often featured on my equine focused website www.HorseShoeNation.com. Our birds names are Putzi, a yellow Spaniard Cockatiel, and Nicki, a grey speckled Cockatiel.

I also maintain a website at www.MySimpleMindedLife.com, which is focused on Clever and Interesting Information for anyone looking to simplify life, including Money Saving Tips, DIY Ideas and Design and Product Reviews.
