Life in Balance

Keeping My Head Above Water

Welcome to “Keeping My Head Above Water.”

I’m Rachel, a wife, mom and educator in Southern California where the livin’ ain’t always so easy when trying to balance a happy home life with the demands of a challenging career.  But hey, I’m trying to figure it out as I go along.

I came to the realization many moons ago that “having it all” will cost me my health and my sanity.  I’m now less about perfection and more about strategic proaction. Give me ideas, shortcuts, products, recipes, tips, stories, information, inspiration – whatever it takes to keep me buoyant in a sea of crazy schedules and competing demands.

I’m writing this blog to share ideas about how to find that balance between our two worlds of home and work.  I also write about the fun things in life that keep me inspired including travel, food, books and DIY.

I’m just starting out and hoping to find friends along the way. 

Thanks for stopping by

I hope you stay awhile and come back often.
